Johnson to take ‘unlawful prorogation decision’ to the European Court

463

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is to take the Supreme Court’s decision that ‘shutting down Parliament was unlawful’ to the European Court.

Johnson is currently enjoying a self-imposed five-week holiday.

A spokeswoman for Downing Street told WalesOnCraic:

“This decision is not what we wanted so we are going to take this to the European Courts. Boris felt that he needed this five-week holiday as he worked so hard in the six weeks that he was in office. It’s not fair to expect him to sort all of this Brexit nonsense out on his own. He can’t come back to the Commons right now anyway because he’s booked himself onto a two-week cookery course with the two Hairy Bikers. I’m sure we’ll get some disposable civil servants to sort all of this out.”

Mr Johnson suspended – or prorogued – Parliament for five weeks earlier this month, but the court said it was wrong to stop MPs carrying out duties in the run-up to Brexit on 31 October. MPs have been filling in their time by taking up roles in Kwik Save, Iceland and Thomas Cook.

The case continues.
