Suspending British Parliament; Why Not Forever? By Richard Miller
Here is a summary about what is happening here in England, whatever that is now, brought to us by our furry friends at the BBC (just think like your ABC only much worse):
• “Prime Minister Boris Johnson set in motion the process to suspend the UK Parliament - which limits the time MPs have to block a no-deal Brexit
• The suspension - also called prorogation - will happen no earlier than 9 September and no later than 12 September
• The new parliamentary session will begin on 14 October
• The UK is set to leave the EU on 31 October with, or without a deal
• Mr Johnson said suggestions the suspension was motivated by a desire to force through a no deal were "completely untrue"
• His decision was criticised by Speaker John Bercow who said it was a "constitutional outrage"
• Jeremy Corbyn called the move "a smash and grab" on democracy and promised to bring forward legislation "to prevent what [the PM] is doing", followed by a vote of no confidence "at some point"
• Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said "it is not democracy, it’s dictatorship" and Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson said it was "a dangerous and unacceptable course"
• But Leader of the House Jacob Rees-Mogg said the move was a "completely proper constitutional procedure"
• MPs return from recess on 3 September.”
Well, well, well. Here is some more fine meat and salad:
“Boris Johnson’s government is activating the constitutional mechanism to suspend Parliament on Wednesday, a move which has outraged Remainers because it limits the amount of Parliamentary time available to them to sabotage Brexit taking place at the end of October. The Prime Minister confirmed will take place on Wednesday, and will see what is called in Westminster jargon Prorogation last five weeks between September and mid-October. Parliament will reopen on October 14th with the Queen’s speech, the ceremonial delivery by the monarch of a speech written by the government outlining their political intentions for the coming session. It is normal for a new government to bring forward a Queen’s speech, and the announcement follows Boris Johnson replacing Theresa May as Prime Minister and building his own government on July 24th, but pro-Remain activists and politicians have reacted to the announcement with undisguised anger. The timing of the announcement severely restricts the amount of Parliamentary time they have to subvert the 2016 referendum, in which the British people said they wanted the country to leave the European Union.”
This is a good delaying tactic by Boris the ever-blonde, but will it work given that the elites have been eating carpet about the Brexit decision since it happened, and will not take “no” for an answer? Time will tell, and even if Brexit does go down, it will at least show what remains of the British people that they have zero say about anything, and that to paraphrase a movie title: “democracy has fallen.”
