Boris Johnson's suspension of parliament ruled unlawful by court

 

Quote

Boris Johnson’s five-week suspension of parliament has been ruled unlawful by the highest appeal court in Scotland, with a panel of three senior judges concluding that the order to close the doors of Westminster to MPs was therefore "null and of no effect".

 

In a unanimous decision in Edinburgh’s Court of Session, the judges ruled that the prorogation was unconstitutional, as documents provided by the government itself had shown that its "true purpose" was to stifle parliamentary scrutiny.

 

In a written ruling, the judges stated that the prime minister's advice to the Queen to shut parliament down until 14 October "was motivated by the improper purpose of stymying parliament and that it, and what has followed from it, is unlawful."

Tory minister apologises for ‘accidentally’ approving illegal sale of military equipment to Saudi Arabia

 

Quote

The government has apologised for breaching a court ruling against the sale of weapons to Saudi Arabia that could be used in the Yemen conflict.

 

International trade secretary Liz Truss admitted the government approved two licences for military equipment which could be used in Yemen.

 

This is despite the government freezing new arms licences for Saudi Arabia in June after the Court of Appeal ruled that it was “unlawful” for the government to license weapons exports without assessing whether there was an “historic pattern of breaches of international humanitarian law” by the Saudi-led coalition.   

Someone should be jailed for contempt of court... Might just as well jail the whole shower of lying scumbags..
