This was challenged in the courts, the UK court said it was lawful, the Scottish court said unlawful, therefore it went to the UK Supreme court and was found unlawful. It seems the UK constitution is being challenged in this Brexit confusion.

    Explore the Craft of Writing Poetry Japanese Verse Imayo, meaning "present style is a little more fluid than many Japanese forms. However, it seems that whenever I research a Japanese frame, it involves an alternating 5-7 or 7-5 syllabic structure. The Imayo of the 12th century is no exception. This form creates long lines broken by caesura separating 7 and 5 syllables in the line. It is associated with song, (recitation in a high pitch) and originated with the common people in folk song. But by the Heian period it was embraced by the Imperial court. This folk art evolved with the influence of Imperial aristocrats and famous courtesans or Shirabyoshi dancers incorporated the Imayo into their performances. One type of Imayo is used in Kabuki, Japanese theatre. The elements of the Imayo are: a 4 line poem. syllabic, written in 12 syllable lines broken by caesura after the 7th syllable.
