Boris Johnson has successfully prorogued parliament, ensuring it will be suspended for around 5 weeks.
Amber Rudd,the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, has also weighed in, deeming Parliament ‘unfit for work’.
Earlier in the summer, Rudd described the suggestion of proroguing Parliament to push through a no-deal Brexit as “absolutely outrageous”.
While in Belfast earlier today, she did not address the prorogue, but did state that after careful evaluation, Parliament was in no position to work at the moment.
“Unlike an anemic pensioner, or an 8 stone husk of a man infested with cancer, we have established that the British Parliament is in no condition to work at this time.”
The DWP has come under fire recently for cutting benefits to terminally ill individuals.
“We’ve heard your complaints, and we’re working to focus on what really matters,” said Rudd, “We’ll be adressing the issues that matter most to the unemployed of Britain. Starting with a 200 year old supreme legislative body of the United Kingdom, and then some sickies in wheelchairs or whatever.”
