  1. So the advice to the Queen was illegal, and Parliament is not prorogued (if that is the correct spelling).
    Does this mean the PM lied to HM?
     
  2. Only seen the news, if it was illegal then what's the punishmen? From a legal point of view.
     
  3. The most noticeable item in the judgement is that the court states there is no document in the UK called The Constitution; but there is a long standing acceptance of practice that a Constitution exists.

    To me that means the people, judiciary and MPs can fiddle about with the so-called Constitution to suit their own ends; as they appear to have done.

    So in which case, the PM should be able to do the same.

  6. he tried. but failed. no constitution, just precidents and laws
     
  7. leave Sophie alone she's done nothing wrong, " I've worked in the civil service." Does that mean you are retired as well and should be killed by now ?
    BTW where do we have to go for that.

  11. John Major got away with it, then; when he was closing down the cash for questions problem (or was it expenses fiddling?).

  16. Cash for questions, however, back then there was no interweb thing with social media or pesky parliaments in the wilds that wanted to hold his feet to the fire, nobody would have noticed until it was all over :thinkingface:
