Darren welcomes Court ruling on prorogation

Commenting on the Scottish appeal court’s verdict that Boris Johnson’s prorogation of Parliament was unlawful, Bristol North West MP Darren Jones said:

Boris Johnson broke the law: that’s the unanimous finding of Scotland’s most senior judges, who this morning ruled that the decision to shutter Parliament was about dodging scrutiny. So far, so obvious — but if their unprecedented judgement that he lied to the Queen in order to do it is upheld by the Supreme Court next week then we shouldn’t mince words: the Prime Minister has to resign.
