Market bill legal due to parliamentary sovereignty - UK

The United Kingdom government stated on Thursday that the country's Parliament can legally pass the Internal Market Bill as the international treaties only show "good faith," and aren't obligatory.

"Parliament is sovereign as a matter of domestic law and can pass legislation which is in breach of the UK's Treaty obligations. Parliament would not be acting unconstitutionally in enacting such legislation," the official statement claimed, relating to Canada and Australia which allegedly apply the same system.

Following the bilateral meeting between London and Brussels earlier today, the European Commission announced it had given the UK one month to withdraw the Internal Market Bill draft from the House of Commons.
