The exact way in which Article 50 is enacted may well come down to a decision in the Supreme Court and/or ECJ as to the proper interpretation of the Article. There will be consideration over whether Parliament needs to "approve" the referendum result, whether it is possible to back out once Article 50 has been invoked, and so on.

These are all arguments which can be properly argued due to the unclear nature of the drafting and the lack of previous experience on this. There are some very good lawyers out there who will be able to make some very compelling arguments one way or the other.

Of course, Mat and Will on here will continue with their baseless and repetitive arguments that Brexit means Brexit, despite being clueless as to the meaning of that.
Those may be caveats on the invoking of A50 but they don't contest the revoking, surely?
