Can I use the phrase common sense like that?

The United Kingdom can reverse #Brexit...if it wants to. The statement of the Court of Justice of the EU makes common sense.

No, not really.

We typically say, "it makes sense" or "it is common sense."

The only way "sense" is commonly modified in the phrase "it makes sense" is in degree:

It makes a lot of sense
It doesn't make much sense
