Group threatens to take British government to court over Brexit

A pro-Europe think-tank says it’s willing to take the British government to court to try to keep the UK in the European Union single market once it leaves the bloc.

The group, British Influence, argues that leaving the EU does not automatically mean leaving the larger European Economic Area (EEA), whose members belong to the EU’s tariff-free single market in goods and services.

In return, EEA members pay into EU coffers and accept free movement from member states.

The British government says the UK will leave the EEA once it quits the European Union.
