Has Boris Johnson scuppered last Brexit hope? ‘Hoisted on his own petard’

Scottish court rules suspension of Parliament unlawful, but doesn't order it overturned Scottish court rules suspension of British Parliament 'unlawful'

It is now unclear what impact the judgement will have on the current five week suspension of Parliament, a process known as proroguing, which started in the early hours of Tuesday.

Last week, a court in Edinburgh rejected the lawmakers' challenge, saying it was a matter for politicians, not the courts, to decide.

They said they were unanimous in their belief that Boris Johnson had been motivated by the "improper goal of stymying Parliament".

A high court in Scotland ruled the proroguing of parliament on Monday had been unlawful as the government's sole reason for the suspension appeared to be stopping parliament from scrutinising the government's Brexit plans.

The Government would nearly certainly have to advise the Queen to recall Parliament immediately in such an instance.

But the current suspension of Parliament will not be influenced by the ruling as the court gave no order to cancel it due to a full hearing next Tuesday at the Supreme Court in London.

Judges at Scotland's highest court in Edinburgh said Britain's Supreme Court must make the final decision. The UK Government needs to bring forward a strong domestic legislative agenda. The implications of this decision made by the Scottish courts should not be underestimated - the shutdown of Parliament has been found unlawful and the government must now act accordingly.

Meanwhile, the leader of the Scottish National Party (S.N.P.), Ian Blackford, has written to Prime Minister Johnson demanding that he recall parliament in light of the ruling in Scotland.

A panel of three judges at the Court of Session found in favor of a cross-party group of politicians who challenged the suspension, which started in the early hours of Tuesday.

The monarch has the power to recall Parliament through a proclamation - which the Prime Minister would be expected to advise her to do if the prorogation was ruled to be unlawful by the Supreme Court.

"The prime minister was not telling the truth about why he was doing it".

Labour's shadow Brexit secretary Keir Starmer said: "This is really important".

The House of Commons has already twice blocked Johnson's bids for an election, and all party leaders have said that it's only a matter of time before United Kingdom citizens have to go to the polls. "So I can only assume the evidence against Boris Johnson was overwhelming". One of the judges, Lord Brodie, said in the ruling that the prorogation "was an egregious case of a clear failure to comply with generally accepted standards of behaviour of public authorities".

Dominic Grieve, one of 21 Brexit rebels thrown out of Johnson's Conservative Party last week, said that if Johnson had misled the queen, he should resign.

The court later agreed to release the documents to the media.

"What this has flagged up is the importance of the rule of law and the sovereignty of Parliament, which are the foundations of British democracy", said European Union supporter Pia. Ms Miller is appealing that decision in the Supreme Court.
