Re: Prorogation of Parliament was unlawful

John Bercow has just been talking about it. Claimed the language used from both both sides was angry, vicious and toxic...

It's got to the compulsive viewing stage if you can suppress your own anger.

Re: Prorogation of Parliament was unlawful

And Boris has lost another vote in the House of Commons...

 

BBC News [website] reports

 

MPs have rejected the government's request for a three-day recess while the Conservatives stage their annual party conference.

It is the seventh vote the government has lost out of eight held in the Commons since Boris Johnson became PM.

MPs voted 306 to 289 to reject the motion asking for the Commons to adjourn until Thursday next week.

The PM's spokesman said Mr Johnson was "disappointed" with the result but the conference, due to be held in Manchester from Sunday to Wednesday, "will go ahead as planned".

The Conservative Party conference is due to be held in Manchester from Sunday to Wednesday.

There will be a political cabinet at 17:00 BST, the spokesman added.

Labour and the Liberal Democrats have already held their annual party conferences while Parliament was suspended.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is due to give his keynote speech at the Conservative Party conference on Wednesday, but that will now clash with Prime Minister's Questions in the Commons. Mr Rees-Mogg told MPs he assumed the prime minister would "make his normal appearance" in the Commons.

Can Boris really be taken seriously anymore? (if he ever was)

 

No word of an App foul up this year which is probably just as well as bet loads of people would love to get hold of Boris' mobile number. Smiley Happy

He thinks he can be, worryingly.

As I've pointed out a few times, the competition wasn't much better as per the recent Conservative leadership nominations for both Boris & May. Its even worse on the opposition parties where nobody seems to want to be nomintated and there's some agenda making sure the "right" candidate is selected.
