Scales of JusticeFollowing today's Supreme Court ruling that Boris Johnson's suspension of Parliament for five weeks was unlawful, Parliamentary Candidate for GUildford, Cranleigh and our Villages Zöe Franklin commented:
"The Supreme Court's decision has proven Boris Johnson, once again, to be unfit to be Prime Minister of our country.
Today's unanimous verdict is important as it confirmed that nobody, not even the Prime Minister, is above the law. Judges confirmed that Johnson acted unlawfully by shutting down Parliament in order to stop it from doing its' job and holding the Government to account. Boris Johnson must now resign.
It was confirmed earlier that the Speaker of the House, John Bercow, has said that Parliament will be recalled and MPs will take their seats again tomorrow at 11:30am. This is crucial as with potentially just five weeks to go until a disastrous No Deal Brexit MPs must be able to question the Conservative Government on its plans, work to stop the UK crashing out with No Deal and ensure that the people of the UK have the final decision on the Brexit deal."
