Some interesting faces in that picture. Boris leading the way, always one step ahead of the pack.

There are some strange ones in there... Sam Allardyce eating a pie... and no idea what Neil Warnock is doing there? Danny Dyer looking at David Cameron, brilliant!  Aaron Banks looks to have a central role in this picture too

yes its normal for the MP's to have a summer holiday ( summer recess) but thats different to progueing

Pragoeing Parliament is normally done to finish one parliament session and start a new one, this is done to anncoe new legislation from the current government. During the progue parliment is suspened, it normally lasts about 4 days.

Boris has produed parliament for about 3 weeks which is very long, most people think it was made so long to limit what parliament can do to stop a no-deal BREXIT. 

That's why people are unhappy about it.

Normally parilent will sit from the being of september on wards, Boris has limited this time

 

 

 

 

But the actual number of sitting days which will be lost due to progueing is much fewer, only 3 - 8 days.

 

Parliament is anyway taking a recess between 13th Sept. - 8th October due it the party conferences.  "The Johnson" has just timed it so that parliament will lose some more days before and after this date.

 

Given that parliament has no fixed timetable, never sits on a Friday, then the actual number of days lost is not known!

 

 

My opinion is that he has been clever to use this tactic and with the timing of it.  I also don't believe that this single act is a threat to democracy itself.

However, if parliament passes a bill to prevent a no-deal and the government refuses to accept it (as was indicated by Gove) then this would be a threat.

If he did that, it would be very likely that the courts would tell him to revoke Article 50.

 

It seems like his decision to suspend Parliament will backfire.

I think Mr Bercow would intervene at this point

From a constitutional point of view, the Government can refuse to give royal accent to the Law that the rebels want, and there is nothing that can be done against it by Bercow or anybody else or small chance of a legal process

But at the moment the Government are the only ones who can ask for royal accent

 

See the Andrew Marr show from Last Sunday, this would be a constitutional outrage, but there is nothing to stop Boris from doing it

This is what happens when you have an unwritten constitution based on essentially a series of gentlemen's agreements.

Nicholas Soames will probably vote against the Government, so it looks like BoJo will have to fire Winston Churchills grandson.

Coming to Dublin on Monday. Just an excuse to blame the Irish "I tried to talk to them blah blah". Irish diplomats are well wise to the games by now though.

I am fairly sure he is only thinking about tonight and not thinking as far ahead as Monday.
