Well given the first two hearings said it wasn't I don't think the judges really know themselves.

It should be settled with a one-on-one pugil-stick battle between Boris and JC - winner takes all.

Bit unfair though. Boris has 15 years on Jeremy, plus a significant weight advantage.

Boris didn't graduate from University though, so Jeremy's crippling student loan debt will give him the added weight on his shoulders.

BoJo/Cummings saw this coming so prorogued Parliament on Monday night.
I suppose It will go before the Supreme court for a final decision.

All down to the Supreme Court next week then. In the meantime, will the MPs get back to work as the people who brought the case think think they should? I hope so as there are some important bills that have been sidelined as a result of this unlawful suspension.

Slightly more complicated than that. The previous judgment in the Scottish courts stated that the advice to prorogue did not come under their judicial remit. Today's judgment says that it does, in part because the actual reason for the prorogation was not that which was publicly given by the Government and was merely to stymie Parliamentary scrutiny of their actions.

Of course, English and Scottish law are not the same, thus whether this holds up in the Supreme Court is a moot point.

While there was clearly an ulterior motive it will no doubt be judged on appeal that the reason given, ending a parliamentary session, was legitimate.

In other news Scottish courts have ruled the ending of braveheart as 'not being factual'.
Judges have stated that it was in fact William Wallace who won the war and will seek to have the ending re-filmed in coming weeks.

I fear that may well be the case. Despite the fact that the judges may not believe what the government said, I can see that they will rule that that cannot be proved in law, and they will get away with it. There is a chance that the documents they have been obliged to divulge will show exactly what were their motives.

Was about to ask a question along those lines as haven’t been following too closely and no time to look into in detail at the moment. So has the court decision been based on some sort of documented evidence, or is it effectively the opinion of the judge that those were the motives?

Seems strange and unlikely to hold up if it’s the latter, even if I tend to agree with that view

While the Parliamentary session had been unusually long, the documents pretty unequivocally show that wasn't the primary reason, nor does it justify the timing and length.

I think it unlikely the Supreme Court will rule against the prorogation, tho.

Based on the Government's own advice and communications beforehand. Which were released by the court in a redacted form, but then subsequently leaked in full (that's where the story about Johnson calling Cameron a 'girly swot' came from).

It's all a matter of whether the courts have jurisdiction over the Government's (effectively the Privy Council's) advice in this case and whether the (actual) reasons for giving that advice were legal and constitutional.

When is that Gina Miller running for PM then, she seems to have had more success with her Brexit plan of action than May and Boris have so far.
