The Court of Session Appeal Court has agreed with the petitioners. All three judges in the appeal court have stated that the prorogation of the Westminster Parliament is unlawful & unconstitutional.
There is no interdict (temporary stop to the action) as the case was already known to be going (final appeal) to the Supreme Court on Tuesday 17th.
BoJo is not out (yet), but he is reeling, on the canvas, and the referee has started the count.
Congratulations to Joanna Cherry (and others) for another famous victory. First victory was confirmation that Article 50 could be unilaterally revoked. Now, prorogation of parliament is judged to be unlawful.
Fingers crossed that the Supreme Court agrees.
I'm thinking Joanna Cherry QC MP was pleased with to-day's result.
Just back home (late #DogWalk, to-day).
The QCs for the petitioners (ones taking the action against Johnson's government) are going to town on the lack of a witness statement (affidavit). I just knew this would come back to haunt Johnson's government, after the Court of Session action. Regardless what else happens this will be crucial.
Should think that is unlikely as the article was wriiten by Joanna Cherry, who is a QC.
Who is Matt Beringer?
No, no, no. That's Matt Berninger. No wonder my Internet search drew a blank. 😃
