What is Johnson really up to?

Is Boris Johnson really trying to avoid a Brexit?

A very good question. I would say the jury is still out, but let’s have a quick look at the evidence.

Wrote two letters before deciding whether to support Leave or Remain in 2016 (in February, rather late). One of these argued for Leave, the other for Remain. Supposedly, his eventual choice was made on the basis of which side would most benefit his personal standing and political prospects.

Judicial activism now imperils parliamentary sovereignty

Bad for both democracy and the law?

By PROF RICHARD EKINS

PUBLISHED: 00:07, 25 September 2019 | UPDATED: 00:23, 25 September 2019

Eleven Supreme Court judges overturned centuries of established law yesterday in ruling in favour of Gina Miller, Sir John Major and Joanna Cherry.

The Government has always had the power to prorogue Parliament and it has never been for the courts to control how this power is exercised. That has always been a job for Parliament and, in the end, the people.

The Court’s judgement is …

What you have to get through your thick heads, you easily led, Leave-voting morons, is that this ruling wasn’t about Brexit.

Goodness me, no. Perish the thought. We have the unimpeachable assurance of no less a figure than Lady Hale, President of the Supreme Court.

Handing down the unanimous decision of all eleven injustices, she was keen to emphasise: ‘These …

Leave now with no Article fifty ‘deal’

Boris Johnson should beware resuscitating the ‘dead’ May deal – even if the EU agree to scrapping the backstop

18 September, 2019

by Christopher Howarth

Let’s start with some recent history: the reason Boris Johnson is Prime Minister is because Theresa May’s draft Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration failed three times in Parliament. Its failure, combined with May’s inflexibility, led the 1922 Committee to be persuaded, by its former Chairmen among others, that the only way forward for the Conservative Party was to change the rules to allow …

Supreme Court misdirects itself

The judges should not join MPs as Brexit back-seat drivers

15 September 2019

by Martin Howe

On Tuesday 17 September 2019, the UK Supreme Court will begin hearing appeals from two conflicting judgments. The English High Court held that Boris Johnson’s advice to the Queen to prorogue (suspend) Parliament until a new session starting on 14 October is lawful; while the Inner House of the Court of Session — Scotland’s equivalent of the English Court of Appeal — held the opposite.

DIVORCE BILL FALLS

Dear Marriage supporter

As expected, David Gauke’s highly controversial divorce Bill has fallen with the prorogation of Parliament. There will be a strong ‘lawyers lobby’ for the Bill to be reintroduced. But that could be difficult in the short term given everything else that is going on.

Moves to prevent No Deal are unconstitutional

No parliamentary motion can prevent a No Deal Brexit. If such a motion purported to be binding upon government it would be unconstitutional, because it would encroach upon the prerogative power of the executive to conduct relations with foreign powers. It would also outrage both logic and democracy by flouting the decision of the Referendum and the Article fifty statutes.

BBC propaganda takes the cake

BBC SONGS OF PRAISE PROMOTES SAME-SEX ‘MARRIAGE’

Dear Marriage supporter

Same-sex ‘marriage’ remains a highly contentious issue, especially for Christians. Around one in 200 places of worship in England and Wales is registered to hold same-sex ‘weddings’. So that’s 99.5% that are not.

When it deals with controversial subjects, the BBC is supposed to “ensure a wide range of significant views and perspectives are given due weight and prominence”.

Yesterday’s Songs of Praise focused on faith and marriage, and celebrated same-sex ‘marriage’. Though the presenter briefly mentioned that some …
