    The Supreme Court has ruled the advice given to the Queen was "unlawful, void and of no effect."
    Lady Hale says: "Parliament has not been prorogued."

    "The decision to advise Her Majesty to prorogue Parliament was unlawful because it had the effect of frustrating or preventing the ability of Parliament to carry out its constitutional functions without reasonable justification"

    Boris Johnsons is a remarkable pm - lost each and every vote and is now stopped by Supreme Court.

    and
    The Supreme Court judges "have vindicated the right and duty of Parliament to meet at this crucial time to scrutinize the executive and hold ministers to account"

    Nigel Farage: "The calling of a Queen's Speech and prorogation is the worst political decision ever. Dominic Cummings must go." (DC = advisor to Boris Johnson)

    So the advice was inlawful because it left out parliament ? Well duh. I think even the queen got that point.

    Now if the court had said Liz just didnt have the authority that wiuld be a problem.

    Sour grapes.

    Full speed ahead brex it for goodness sake !
