CHERRY CASE - BORIS JOHNSON’S PROROGATION RULED UNLAWFUL BY SCOTLAND'S HIGHEST COURT

SNP MP WELCOMES DAMNING COURT RULING – “PROROGATION MUST NOW BE STOPPED"

Responding to today’s ruling in the Court of Session that Boris Johnson’s prorogation of the UK Parliament is unlawful, SNP MP Joanna Cherry QC, who led the legal case, said:

“Today’s ruling of the highest court in Scotland that Boris Johnson’s plans to shut down the UK Parliament ahead of Brexit are unlawful and unconstitutional is a huge victory and a vindication of our case. The prorogation must now be stopped.

“The court agreed it is unlawful to suspend the UK Parliament for the specific purpose of preventing Parliament from scrutinising the Brexit process and holding this shambolic Tory government's extreme Brexit plans to account.

“We have uncovered more and more evidence that this was a plot by Boris Johnson and his cronies to prevent us from stopping them taking Scotland and the UK off a Brexit cliff edge by forcing through a damaging no-deal against the will of Parliament. 

“This ruling takes us one step closer to ensuring the UK government cancels their shameful prorogation and blatant plot to force through an extreme Brexit. Boris Johnson cannot be allowed to break the law with impunity.”
