Courts rule suspension of parliament 'unlawful'. PM set to launch challenge in EU court.

The UK government said it will make an appeal to the Supreme Court in London after a Scotland’s highest civil court ruled its suspension of parliament was unlawful.

Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, said he was ‘outraged’ at the court’s decision and promised to take the issue to the European courts if necessary.

The judges said the PM was attempting to prevent Parliament holding the government to account ahead of Brexit.

But the Prime Minister denied the claim saying he just needs ‘some time to think’. A Downing Street spokesman said, ‘EU leaders are proving to be tough cookies for the Prime Minister. Unlike large swathes of the British public and many Tory party members, they don’t seem to be responding to buffoonery and soundbites, so he needs a bit of time to think of a decent excuse as to why he had to prorogue parliament, why he failed to enter into any meaningful discussions, and why we ended up with a no deal Brexit. At the moment we’re looking at putting up Theresa May as the scapegoat as we’re fairly confident people will run with that.

But he went on to say that ‘in the event that the Supreme Court add themselves to the growing list of people and institutions who take literally no notice of Boris Johnson, then we’ll be taking the matter to Europe where we hope their authority and reasoned approach to matters of law will be far greater than the courts in the this hell hole of a nation that just seem to want to restrict everything we do and impose laws we don’t agree with without us having any say in them. In facct I can now announce that once all this Brexit nonsense is out the way, Tory party policy will be to seek to form a union with other European states in which laws and regulations are unanimously agreed upon for the benefit of all nations.’

The government have announced they will appeal against the decision and that in their eyes Parliament remains suspended pending the outcome of that appeal.
