    There's only one answer, get rid of all the judges, get rid of Parliament. Fook the rule of law. And while they're at it, get rid of Queeny too.

    Surely, for an action to be declared "unlawful", then a law must have been broken. What law has been broken?

    Lying to the queen is still a capital offence. Probably.

    From the summary of opinions linked from the BBC.

    All three First Division judges have decided that the PM’s advice to the HM the Queen is justiciable, that it was motivated by the improper purpose of stymying Parliament and that it, and what has followed from it, is unlawful.
    Proroguing parliament is only permitted for the purposes of introducing a new calendar of legislation via a Queens speech. They have decided that this was not the real reason and that he lied to the Queen in order to have Parliament prorogued, so therefor the action of proroguing parliament was illegal.

    Proroguing parliament is only permitted
    is that the law, or convention?

    I imagine three of the most senior Scottish law lords might know the difference.

    so, let's see the law that says that this action is only allowed in order to prepare a new Queen's speech. From Wiki -

    The power to prorogue Parliament belongs to the Monarch as part of the Royal Prerogative, on the advice of the Privy Council,[2] but is rarely refused if requested by the prime minister.

    About time Scotland won the independence from Westminster they so desire.

    And since Scotland has as more power over England than England has over Scotland, this vote should go to everyone in the union.

    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.
