The Court of Session in Edinburgh has ruled, unanimously on appeal, that the Prime Minister’s advice to the sovereign on proroguing Parliament was unlawful.
Commenting, Ian Murray MP, one of the petitioners to the court and a leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said:
“No one can trust what Boris Johnson says on Brexit or anything else and the Court of Session have not been taken in.
“The unanimous ruling by three judges on appeal is a humiliating rebuff for the Prime Minister and his attempts to impose an undemocratic No Deal on the country.
“Parliament should be recalled and act to end the Brexit crisis by calling a final say referendum. An election cannot settle this question, only a People’s Vote can bring clarity and closure and democratic legitimacy.”
