    Where do we go from here , total mess. General Election is one option but Parliament seems reluctant to call one.

    Depends on what Parliament decides when it sits tomorrow.

    This is messed up. The nation voted to leave, yet it seems more and more likely that eventually the referendum result will end up being overturned.

    The Conservative opinion poll on the EU and Parliament are two very different things. Many of us voted for Ian Lucas for reasons other than brexit.

    The Conservatives made a mess of their own policy on the EU, whatever it’s supposed to be, so I would suggest having a word with them.

    Just wondering –
    Are members of the Supreme Court picked for impartiality?
    Will judges who earlier found proroguing legal likely to be asked to resign.
    Will laws brought in to frustrate Brexit be found illegal further down the line when applied to other criteria?
    Is there any point to elections & referendums?

    In that order,

    1. Yes. They’re also picked based on merit – law degrees, higher degrees, qualification and years of experience as solicitors, barristers and judges.
    2. No, the precedents they set hold until inspected by a higher court, who will decide whether to uphold or overrule them. That’s how precedent works.
    3. Laws dealing with brexit are a matter for Parliament. Judges are apolitical and decide only on matters of law. In this case, on the lawfulness of suspending Parliament.
    4. There is a point to elections, but there was no point to the Conservatives’ ludicrous opinion poll.

    LOL! Don’t think he has a paddle now, though.

    Why are people associating the reversal of the proroguing of parliament with an attempt to influence Brexit? I think it was Johnson himself who said the initial decision had nothing to do with Brexit.

    Corbyn hasn’t found the “money tree” he has found a “money forrest” if he is to carry out half of the promises he made in his conference speech. Promised the world but no facts about where all the money will come from!
