Today’s ruling by the Scottish courts that Boris Johnson’s suspension of Parliament was unlawful is a very welcome one and I am proud to have been one of the petitioners in the court action that made it possible.
Boris Johnson shut down Parliament to try and force through a disastrous “no deal” Brexit without challenge. Our rapid cross-party efforts last week to pass a Bill forcing him to secure an extension to the Brexit deadline and now this court judgement demonstrate that we’re going to fight this abuse of the democratic process every step of the way.
Now let’s get back to where we should be – in Parliament holding this reckless Government to account.
