The Supreme Court hearing on how the government will trigger Article 50 began today. Outside the building, a group of about 20 to 30 protesters gathered to speak out, dance an Irish jig or wave their Union Jacks.

Standing out in support of Brexit meaning Brexit was Catherine Cook, who travelled down from Newcastle to show her anger with Parliament. Ticking the box and leaving it at that isn't enough, Cook said.

"If something is preventing the democratic vote from being carried forward, people should let their voices be heard no matter how far they have to travel."

Anti-Brexit group Movement for Justice by Any Means Necessary represented most of the pro-European Union support outside the court.

"The only policy of Brexit is anti-immigrant, and that means that's the only real outcome of Brexit," said Antonia Bright who was with the organisation.

"We're protesting to say stop Brexit and to make the connection plain and clear that Brexit is a racist policy," Bright said.

Neil Horan, an Irish dancer who has appeared on Britain's Got Talent, said he was there to represent the religious point of view. Horan said there was a biblical tie to the necessity of bringing Britain out of Europe before performing a dance for the crowd.

A Brexiteer who wished to remain unnamed said he was angry about the double standards presented by the "Remainiacs". He said if the country had voted to remain he would have seen it as a final decision.

"I'm just about to go to the pub now because I don't think it's going to get any bigger," said the Brexiteer who had been there for a couple hours already.

"I'll go to Wetherspoons, because Wetherspoons is a good Brexit pub. And it's cheap as well."
