Social media has gone into meltdown this morning (November 3), after a High Court court ruling on Article 50 delivered a potential blow to Brexit.
The new ruling states that Parliament must vote on whether the UK can start the process of leaving the EU, meaning the government cannot begin proceedings on its own.
The government will challenge the decision in a hearing next month, but the ruling has got everyone talking online.
See some of the funniest, and most outraged, Twitter reactions to the Article 50 ruling below:

Absolutely outrageous that parliament might have to make a political decision on the country's future.

Funny thing about government going to parliament before triggering Article 50 is Brexiters who told Remainers to stop moaning all moaning.

Imagine voting leave because you think the EU is undemocratic and then moaning because we can only trigger Article 50 as a democracy

Surely the govt can't appeal the article 50 decision. Don't we have to take the first answer now?

I now fear every attempt will be made to block or delay triggering Article 50. They have no idea level of public anger they will provoke.

My money is on Article 50 winning next year's Mercury Music Award. Great band.
