UK Supreme Court told Boris Johnson is ‘father of lies’

Bulgaria The European Parliament is Discussing Brexit Tweet Share Send to Kindle

The strident message paralleled stepped-up moves by Brussels and London to hand out blame for a chaotic no-deal Brexit. "These are the true reasons for what was done"?" said one of the judges, Nicholas Wilson.

Johnson's office said in a statement late on Wednesday that the British leader had spoken with Juncker and the president of the European Parliament to reassure them that work was underway to find an alternative to the backstop.

It is scheduled to reconvene on October 14, just two weeks before Britain is due to exit the European Union on October 31.

He also said decisions to prorogue Parliament "are inherently and fundamentally political in nature" and not a matter for the courts.

The government's opponents argue that Johnson illegally shut down Parliament just weeks before the country is due to leave the 28-nation bloc for the "improper purpose" of dodging lawmakers' scrutiny of his Brexit plans.

TVNZ Europe correspondent Daniel Faitaua gave an update on the Brexit drama from London.

"Or do you want a Prime Minister who has completely committed to delivering Brexit and with a majority would be able to do great things for this country?"

The legislature was prorogued, or suspended, on the 10th of September after Johnson formally advised Queen Elizabeth that he needed it shut down for five weeks so he could prepare to introduce a new legislative agenda.

His Brexit Party holds its West Midland conference at Telford International Centre tomorrow night, where he will once more call for a "non aggression pact" with the Conservatives providing they agree to leave the European Union without a deal.

A ruling against him would be a major embarrassment for Johnson, who has no majority in parliament, and could see lawmakers returning early, with more time to try to influence his Brexit plans.

Mr Johnson cut short the parliamentary session amid a fractious battle over Brexit in the House of Commons.

Government lawyer James Eadie argued that a lower court was right to rule that Johnson's suspension of Parliament was a matter of "high policy" and politics, not law.

The British PM called off a planned press conference after loud boos from protestors.

Aidan O'Neill, setting out his case on behalf of SNP MP Joanna Cherry and 77 other parliamentarians, warned justices they risked a "Dredd Scott" moment if they rule in favour of the UK Government - a controversial reference to a US Supreme Court judgement that black people were not full citizens.

They have told the court it was "remarkable" Johnson had not provided a witness statement spelling out his reasons for the prorogation, an omission even the judges queried.

The European Parliament has to approve any Brexit deal agreed between the EU and Britain for it to take effect.

"I really think that Boris Johnson must not be allowed to get away with saying that the withdrawal agreement without the backstop is somehow Brexit, because it is not". "As long as such proposals are not made, I can not tell you - while looking you straight in the eye - that progress is being made".
