“I think it would be a terrible thing that having said we should have more power in this country and trust our institutions more … and shut the door on parliament”
“[Proroguing parliament] goes against everything that those men who waded onto those beaches, fought and died for and I will not have it.”
“It is a ridiculous suggestion”
“Delivery on democracy while trashing democracy. We are not selecting a dictator.”
Will the majority of MPs in the little time they have left do enough to stop us crashing out of the EU? I honestly do not know, but I am pessimistic because only Johnson can extend Article 50 and I now think it is quite likely he will try to frustrate parliament in other ways and that he will ignore parliament if it did succeed. A vote of no confidence may be the only option MPs have. Will Johnson’s suspension of parliamentary democracy unite enough MPs to do this? Again I have no idea, but I can say this.
