The Article 50 Brexit appeal before the United Kingdom Supreme Court: Bermuda gets a mention (of sorts) on Day 1

There has been an enormous, and unprecedented, amount of live media coverage of Day 1 of the Brexit appeal before the United Kingdom Supreme Court. See, for example, https://www.theguardian.com/law/2016/dec/05/brexit-supreme-court-article-50-appeal-case-opens and the Supreme Court’s own website: https://www.supremecourt.uk/news/article-50-brexit-appeal.html

In haste, I simply draw attention to the fact that little Bermuda got a mention (of sorts), by Lord Mance, in questions put to James Eadie QC, representing the Government, at page 64, line 9 of Day 1 of the transcript.

The reference, sadly, had nothing to with Bermuda’s direct and immediate interest in Brexit as a British Overseas Territory, but with the 1977 Bermuda II Agreement between the UK and US Governments, relating to air transportation and air services.

For those with a peculiar interest in such matters, I have separately discussed the Bermuda II Agreement in a separate blogpost, in which I asked the question whether or not the Bermuda II Agreement might need to be reinstated or re-negotiated, post Brexit.
