So it’s kicking off today.
Boris has announced that Parliament will be suspended to allow for a new Queens Speech.
The Queen has already approved the order to progrogue but as you can imagine all hell has broken loose within the remain alliance.
So to the question at hand.
Will the Remainers find away to stop Boris from proroguing Parliament?
Cast your predictions below.
The privy council held by the Queen at Balmoral has approved an order to prorogue or suspend parliament on a date between 9 and 12 September till 14 October. It is not clear what MPs can do to stop this, even if Speaker Bercow is on their side (which he is).— Robert Peston (@Peston) August 28, 2019
I have consistently opposed No Deal. I am disappointed and surprised at the decision to prorogue Parliament. I think that it is wrong, undemocratic and constitutionally outrageous for Parliament to be prevented from holding the Government to account at a time of national crisis.— Stephen Hammond MP (@S_Hammond) August 28, 2019
Bercow weighs in – ‘this move represents a constitutional outrage. However it is dressed up it is blindingly obvious that the purpose of prorogation now would be to stop Parliament debating Brexit and performing its duty’— Laura Kuenssberg (@bbclaurak) August 28, 2019
Jeremy Corbyn accuses Boris Johnson of carrying out a “smash and grab on our democracy” by asking the Queen to suspend Parliament— BBC Politics (@BBCPolitics) August 28, 2019
The Labour leader says MPs will attempt legislation to stop the move
