    Because the PM has been shown to have committed an unlawful and deceitful act. The only reason Boris won’t go is the polarising of opinion nowadays. Personally I’d find it hilarious if - after putting personal ambition ahead of country consistently throughout his political career - he were to hold the record for the shortest tenure as PM.

    Suspending Parliament was unlawful, court rules

    Ha ha ha ha, ha ha ha ha.

    That’s twice now that the court has had to deliver the promises of the leave campaign to keep parliament sovereign after those who campaigned for it have either dismissed it or tried to bypass it. Thank god for remoaners delivering leavers promises.

    He’s abused his power. As found in the highest court in the land. Maybe Boris will appeal to the European court.

    One line Dom, with usual level of insight.

    You'd suit a twitterbot.

    I could of voted remain for all you know, i just think that if a referendum is held and one side win a majority then the referendum result has to be honored.... something which certain people can't accept

    It's safe to say with your mechanical repetition, with no variance or commentary on what's going on around you...

    You might well have done so, by mistake.

    The judgement reaffirmed parliamentary sovereignty, what every right minded leaver voted for, apparently.

    All it shows is we have a charlatan in charge, who's not to be trusted on... anything.

    Then again, we knew that before, and it didn't stop him ending up as PM!l

    Can the government appeal to the European Court of Justice, perhaps?

    The question is who can we trust.

    If we have another election now I don't know who I would vote for. I have voted Labour all my life. I normally ignore the bad and look at the good. I was dragged up on council estates in Coventry by a single parent. But now I am unsure what Labour stands for. Even the Labour party don't know what they stand for.

    Tory? Wash your mouth out with soap.

    Lib Dems? If they didn't get into bed with the Tories maybe. But now a no.

    Reconsider Labour? Last time it was the Tories in disguise. Now there is nothing to disguise.

    I give up. I hope there isn't another GE.

    This is not a good day for democracy - the Supreme Court is a ghastly Blairite invention to serve exactly this purpose.

    Despite the so called outrage at Mr Johnson the Labour Party it seems want to retain mr Johnson as leader

    The Order Paper being removed from the elected government and that government is now being held hostage through the abuse of parliamentary procedure - the parliament act is being abused

    I assure you many many people will share Dom’s views and the strength of opposition to this rag tag parliament will grow

    But who is there to oppose him? Most of those against him have been forced out. And Labour don't want to force a GE.

    Half the people are happy with the result. The other half are getting more angry that their wishes are getting ignored.

    Perish the thought we have people to look objectively at the evidence, and come to a conclusion.

    Far better to hand it over to some emotional ranters.

    I learned my lesson last time when Gordon Brown killed off final salary pensions. Most of mine is now fully protected until I take it from where it is. I hold no risk. I am now being offered a massive amount to take it out but it is staying until I know what is happening.

    You are advocating removing parliamentary democracy. Quango courts are the banana republic ideas of democracy - this is an establishment bending every rule in the book to prevent an agreed outcome of a referendum

    Nope. The judgement reaffirms parliamentary democracy, when it is under assault by a liar and a fraud of a Prime Minister.

    Yes but closed last year as it was costing nearly 80% of my wage to keep it going with the tax and new rules put onto it. I am now guaranteed a minimum of 3% a year no risk to me with triple lock benefits.

    Nope because the opposition has control of the Order Paper and is abusing the parliament act rather than calling a no confidence motion. I said before Johnson should have called the motion himself and see the absurd sight of the opposition voting against the motion.

    Probably shouldn't have tried to suspend it for as long as he did but it still doesn't take away the fact that brexit should be delivered
