    Potayto potarto, he's still an immoral self serving elitist tw*t, which is surely the bigger point to be made in all of this.

    The Supreme Court was very careful NOT to rule on intent. There was also no implication that the queen was lied to - not by Johnson, incidentally (clever move) but by The Hon Member for the 18th Century.

    Well yes. However while we're being subjected to argument along the lines of "Miss he was talking too! What about him Miss?" we aren't going to have a reasonable discussion about whether Johnson's political career is over.

    Ok, I'll join in.

    Johnson's political career would be over in any country, democracy or not, in which honesty, integrity and having the best interests of the country at heart were required characteristics of politicians. But they're not. All that's required of Johnson is that he batters through brexit before those tax laws kick in.

    People who support Johnson won't stop supporting him because of this. They don't care about his morals.

    I wonder if Jeremy Hunt would have handled things better.

    What tax laws are you referring to that Parliament is about to create?

    I think you'll find that the Supreme Court and their Justices (all eleven of them) out-trump the Attorney General by several degrees.

    Erm. That's the whole point of why I said it should be the end of Cox's stint as AG.

    He sent Rees Mogg to see the Queen and request prorogation. Boris should double-check with Rees Mogg about what exactly was said.
    He should also ask himself why he thinks that it is Brexit that is being thwarted by Parliament reconvening and not his Queen's Speech that he apparently thought he needed 5 weeks to create.

    The judges in the High Court who felt he had not acted illegally didn't have all the pertinent facts. They didn't have the memo from his legal adviser which gave the date when Johnson decided to suspend parliament. This was the killer info that both the Scottish Court and the Supreme Court had, that showed them that Bojob had acted illegally. Nothing to do with the High court having a different interpretation of the law. Simply put, they didn't have a complete picture of what Bojob and Cummings had been up to so they cou;dn't come to the correct conclusion.

    Come on JB. Admit it. Boris has been found guilty by eleven judges who are the most knowledgeable and experienced judges in the country and far far cleverer than either you or me. If you believe the sun rises in the morning because the world is round and spins on its axis then you have to believe that Boris is guilty!

    Let's try to avoid mentioning Cox when discussing Boris's latest escapades.
