The UK Supreme Court, in a historic ruling, declared Tuesday that Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s decision to suspend Parliament was unlawful. Johnson prorogued parliament for five weeks earlier this month, saying it was to allow a Queen’s Speech to Parliament to outline his new policies. But the UK’s highest court said it was wrong to stop Parliament carrying out its duties. The court’s president, Lady Hale said: “The effect on the fundamentals of our democracy was extreme.” Following the verdict by 11 judges, leading MPs demanded that the prime minister recall parliament immediately. The ruling has thrown Johnson’s Brexit plans into chaos.
