Parliament has now prorogued (been suspended) and the House of Commons will next sit for the State Opening of Parliament on 14 October 2019.— UK House of Commons (@HouseofCommons) September 10, 2019
So the prime minister has done it.
Boris Johnson has now locked the doors of parliament for five weeks in the short lead up to the UK’s set departure from the EU.
Actually closed down parliament, so as to prevent his government being scrutinised by the people’s representatives.
Not much one can add to that, but it is so dark and sad a fact that it warranted a post just for itself.
