Re: Boris Johnson.

Returning to the Marcus Ball case. Yesterday, he announced that his Crowdfunder appeal was suspended for the time being, having reached £456,153 of the £500,000 target, and he added, "I've encountered a serious problem. Please await news." And no news yet, as far as I know. On October 8th Marcus pu...

Re: Boris Johnson.

Completely aside from Marcus Ball's case, Jonathan Lis has written about Johnson's behaviour in recent days. On Tuesday the highest court in the land found that the prime minister had abused his power, misled parliament, and broken the law. It upheld the earlier verdict of the Scottish judges, who f...

"To save Britain’s democracy we must fix our creaking constitution."

A recently-published article from David Allen Green. The relationships between the elements of the state—legislature, executive and judiciary—are still pretty much as Walter Bagehot described and AV Dicey theorised in the late 19th century. If there were a picture album for the constitution of the U...

Re: Brexit consequences

And on a lighter note.... Describing the judgement as ‘terrible’, leading figures in the Leave campaign including David Davis, Jacob-Rees Mogg and Sir Whatsisname Oojimaflip have backed the PM’s view that a ruling from the highest court in the European Union may be essential to get a fair and unbias...

Re: Brexit consequences

Bercow says the citizens of the UK are entitled to expect that parliament performs its function. He says he has instructed his officials to prepare for the resumption of the work of the Commons. It is not a recall of parliament, he says, because parliament was not properly prorogued. He says he wan...
