PM Dissents From Supreme Court Ruling

The PM’s decision to suspend Parliament for five weeks was unlawful, the Supreme Court ruled yesterday.

Boris Johnson reacted by saying that he “profoundly disagreed” with the ruling but would “respect” it.  A  government official said that he  spoke to the Queen after the  ruling.  The BBC reported that the Leader of the Commons Jacob Rees-Mogg said to cabinet ministers that the court enacted a “constitutional coup”.

The PM insisted he still planned to outline government policy in a Queen’s Speech on 14 October.  During a speech in New York, where he was attending UN meetings,  the PM said he “refused to be deterred” from getting on with “an exciting and dynamic domestic agenda”.
