The Supreme Court is hearing the second day of the EU referendum appeal – if the Government loses the case, MPs will have to vote on Article 50, which could potentially change the course of Brexit.
Theresa May’s negotiation strategy for Brexit has been the topic of scrutiny as of late: the Prime Minister has kept plans thoroughly to herself, which has left people speculating as to the shape Brexit will take.

Other options include either leaving article 50 talks altogether, or attempting to stay in the single market.

A fresh… Brexit…?
Or a sexy Brexit?
So there is some confusion - but that's okay, it's part of the process. Besides, many are relieved that May is finally one step closer to clarifying what a Brexit actually looks like:
You know what else is red, white and blue?

Brexit means Brexit: a red, white and blue Brexit.
