    wow, Unanimous decision by the Supreme Court

    Boris has not won a House of Commons vote, he’s shed his Parliamentary majority and now he’s been found by the highest court in the land to have acted illegally. Oh and that’s not forgetting his “friend” who has gained a six figure grants from HMG which are now being re examined

    And still we don’t have an effective opposition to hold this cunts feet or face to the fire

    What next for Boris ?

  • Unlawfully not illegally. There is a difference.

    The court didn't say that, so it would be a lie to say that it did. Unlawful yes.
    they upheld the Scottish Decision.
    So yes, they did.

    Seen the minutes of any meeting? Thought not.

    As I understand it, the 'advice' to the Queen to prorogue Parliament came from the Privy Council. JRM and 2 other members met with the Queen to form a quorum. JRM read out the order and the Queen replied, "Approved", as she is obliged to follow the advice of the Privy Council.

    But just like Chris Bass (not his real name) in the other thread, I could be wrong.

    No he hasn't. Unlawfully.

    One out of 650 just now will not make a difference right now, but I agree with you.
    I think that in the next election those who voted Liberal last time as a protest vote will migrate to UKIP along with a few disaffected from the other parties.
    Then there will be a difference.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.

    Update:
    - Recess motion expected to be tabled tomorrow.
    - Opposition MPs might need to vote against given the amount of recent complaints. This would only affect the Conservative party conference. Arguably, not a very sporting move.
    - Johnson still keen on a Queen's speech, so further prorogation to come.
    - Grieve/Bercow plotting more lawfare via emergency debates

    That was 5 years ago and the prospect was scary enough for DC to get us where we are today.
    My point is that things have not progressed much in these 5 years. Westminster is still full of useless feckers. Even more useless in fact.....

    "Many people are saying I'm not saying this, but many people..are saying that the judges are biased the judges are getting involved in politics. I'm just saying what people are saying."

    Finally a politician that does actually know what people are thinking. They are a rare beast...

    When you say "knows what the people are thinking" I assume you mean "knows what me and like minded people are thinking"? As you might have noticed the country is split down the middle so it's impossible say "this is what the people are saying / thinking". If we are going by majorities then a poll on the proroguing issue showed 47% were against compared to 24% in favour so the judges are in line with the people on that and we know you like the will of the people to be followed.

    The Scottish court would have been fully aware of the the UK High Court decision to judge this was a political decision and not for the courts, so how have the Scottish judges not even got close to the UK High Court decision?

    You would think senior judges with their legal experience would have similar interpretations of law especially when they are fully aware of a recent decision from another senior court.

    Now wonder their independence is being called into question with the route they have taken

    You know that Scotland has its own legal system don't you (and someone has already posted about the differences on constitutional law)? Scotland is still at least partially governed by UK parliament so they have every right to decide if Parliament is acting within Scottish law.

    Besides, what we are getting is what Brexiteers are so keen on and UK Courts taking back control and making decisions rather than leaving it to those corrupt foreigners. I would have thought you'd approve.

    The Scottish court via these 3 judges has allowed itself to become a useful idiot on behalf of remainer extremists. They could easily, in full knowledge of the decision by another senior UK court have said this is a political decision and referred it to the supreme court as the UK High Court did.

    It is their own fault they have allowed their neutrality to be brought into question

  • Judges decide to become political. They really won't like the changes that are down the line because of what they have started.

    Parliament is still going to get one hell of a kicking at the next election. They have gone rogue on democracy and the people. They will learn they must respect the people the hard way.

    I'd be suprised if they vote against a recess.
    There's nothing to be gained.

    I'd expect the key battlegrounds to be no deal prep and the negotiations with lots and lots of urgent questions for ministers.

    I think he's also going to be in a bit of a minority, since even the Mail and Telegraph don't seem to be denouncing it too much yet (although wait and see tomorrow's front pages I guess). And Farage is now against the prorogation apparently.
  • My god, the absolute twaddle being spouted by some people over this is glorious to behold :mrgreen:

    You have to laugh at people who banged on about taking back control and British parliamentary sovereignty, who then get all upset when exactly that happens.
  • They don't care about your feelings.
    Neither do I. I don't care about what he writes either. I'm not sure why anyone does.

    Also the ones who said the prorogation was nothing to do with Brexit now saying that the Supreme Court is siding with Remainers.

    Isn't that admitting that the prorogation was exactly to do with Brexit?!?

    Johnson's response pretty much confirms my suspicion the strategy is still "the elite are working against us to get this done, only we, the Tories, will get it over the line" and this outcome falls directly into this narrative.
  • But the Tories 'are' the elite, aren't they?

    Parliament is just who we elect. How do we give it "a kicking" by electing a slightly different selection of people?

    If you don't like the current bunch perhaps you should have voted differently in 2017.

    Presumably the strategy is that the elite are anyone who opposes Brexit, which was pretty much how the leaver side defined their opposition in the culture wars.

    Surely we know by now that one's background is irrelevant; the elite are anti-populist, and that's that.

    Tough to vote in UK elections from Russia, though presumably not entirely impossible, but probably beyond his pay-grade.
