    The British Supreme Court has ruled that Parliament is Sovereign.
    As with any court case there is a winner and there is a loser, and the *loser* will invariably whine about how unfair it is that they didn’t win.
    The Supreme Court judgement wasn’t even a close call, it was a unanimous decision, by eleven of the most highly trained and experienced judges in the entire British legal system. I think that they have a better grasp of the complexities of constitutional law than a former newspaper columnist.

      @E Clouston I am sure they do. I just accept that the unanimous decision of the top judges in the country carries more legal weight than the wishful thinking of a failed journalist like BoJo.

    • Nehemiah Scudder ignore him…he’s a trump supporting mouth breather

    • Not to offend anyone, but in a parlamentarism the Parlament has the power. Many countries have had referendums which outcomes wasn’t fulfilled. Sometimes political, many times because of a change of the situation.

      It’s problematic in they way that it promises direct democracy (which doesn’t work) but where the elected actually has the power.

  4. So, who’s the next leader of the conservatives?

  5. He looks like he slept in that suit then just got up and walked out the front door.

  6. Trump take notice…. 2 power hungry dudes got shook today.

  7. Went to the UN and still didn’t comb his hair

  8. He’s the second PM since David Cameron not the 3rd.

  9. Donald Trump of UK 🇬🇧

  10. the British catch on faster than us here in the states

      It helps having a Supreme Court with balls.

    • @MEanME let me help you out in translating what Peter was saying.
      Trump is an idoit. Got that one.


    • It always starts with populism, and off course socio-economic factors. This Leads to the “not listened to” group to feel important and follow the demagogue.

      Sure, a bit elitism from me here – the blame is on the society on the whole where all parts should have been more included and a society which is also there for them.

    • I noticed the most important quality of the British people is the respect they show for their country, laws and citizens, unfortunately, citizens here in the United States are not the same. It is just my opinion, I hope I am wrong.

  11. Is Boris special needs? Reminds me of South Park skit with Cartman entering special Olympics.

  12. I wish our so called conservatives behaved like Tories repsecting the rule of law and putting country before party.

    • They are actually quite clear in their programme: “We are above the law, and poor are below us. We must protect the people from taxes, and reforms against pollution“

    • The Conservatives on both sides of the Atlantic are now nothing more than a Corporatist Party. The look after the interests of their major donors who are the Corporate giants, and in both cases this includes the Murdoch’s.
      They have no respect for the rule of law, a country’s institutions and above all, they have no respect for democracy. To them a government should consist of those who look after their interests, and not those of the people.

  13. Just before he goes on stage they take a hair dryer to him.

  14. You know when Boris was a child he was asked what he wanted to be when he grows up and he said Prime Minister.
    Like Chinese proverb says . Be careful what you wish for ,it might come true.

    The irony is that one of the brexit supporters reasons for leaving the EU was that Parliament was sovereign now that it has asserted itself they don’t like it.

    -“I strongly disagree”

    Yea, I would guess many people doing things that break the law disagrees with the ruling. But 11 supreme court judges probably know the law a bit better than the Prime Minister and no matter what he feels, they concluded he broke the law.

    • The Supreme Court did not MENTION any law which was broken. None. Because there is no law which restricts the ability of the Prime Minister to advise the Queen to prorogue the Parliament. You cannot break a law which does not exist.

      @ctafrance They don’t have to MENTION the law. But if you truly mean to indicate 11 separate individuals holding the highest positions of the justice system didn’t act in accordance with the law I think the burden of proof falls on you.

      Take your concerns up with the supreme court and ask them. I’m sure they have a very sound legal argument before their judgment since all 11 members reached the same conclusion.

      @ctafrance pedantry is for whiners. Ill informed pedantry is for whiners with no sense of shame.

  17. 11 – 0 decision, that’s not a political rebuttal that’s a full-on taken to the woodshed.

    • All of those judges are partial Remainers. IT was clear from the way Robin Tilbrook case was treated, they have leftist judges that follow EU law in there, of course they want to undo Brexit to keep their jobs.

    • @CellGames2006 By undoing Brexit you mean keeping Parliament going. By the way Brexit is undoing itself.

    • @CellGames2006 Do you really believe that yourself. So there exist no professional people in UK anymore. All is a conspiracy against Brexit

    • …..if he was any kind of a human being ( he’s not ) he would be heading for his library with his service revolver and locking the door behind him !
      Ear plugs at the ready folks?…..not likely…he’s as cowardly as his draft dodging potus pal !

    • @CellGames2006 Yu fcuking moron….You filth were bragging just 2 days ago that the ‘ mickey mouse’ scots legal system would be the ones torn apart………and if the british way of dispensing justice is so bad….why are you trying to leave the EU court system behind?
      As ever…you make no sense…because yerra fcukwit !

  18. Bojo seems to be following in Bozo’s footsteps. UK and US are both governed by clowns who have no respect for the law.

  19. It shows that there is more democracy in the UK than in the USA. 👏👏👏👏 the forefathers of America has failed to anticipate a dude like Trump to push the country into crisis.
