Quote from: undefinedBoris Johnson's five-week suspension of parliament has been ruled unlawful by the highest appeal court in Scotland, with a panel of three senior judges concluding that the order to close the doors of Westminster to MPs was therefore "null and of no effect".

Quote from: undefinedBoris Johnson's decision to suspend Parliament was unlawful, the Supreme Court has ruled.

Mr Johnson suspended - or prorogued - Parliament for five weeks earlier this month, but the court said it was wrong to stop MPs carrying out duties in the run-up to Brexit on 31 October.

Supreme Court president Lady Hale said "the effect on the fundamentals of democracy was extreme".

Hopefully this means "bye-bye" to Boris soon(ish).

I'll leave you with this, very funny:
Harold and Joe - go go go...

This was a delightful unanimous decision. He said he's not resigning, but we shall see.

Imho, it's not the parliament which is a disgrace, but the politicians who tried to block it (tricked it, undermined it, ignored it etc.)!  :pouting-face   :mad:  :1f629:

Now even his sister turns away from his awful rhetoric (does he want to become a 2nd "Trump" or what?)...

QuoteBoris Johnson's sister has criticised his behaviour, saying it was "not helpful" to blame Parliament for his Brexit difficulties, and claiming that he used the Commons despatch box as a "bully pulpit".

Rachel Johnson said his attack on Parliament was a "strongman gambit" designed to "whip up" support.

While there is a bit of "uncertainty" for most of us in regards to Brexit, it must be a nightmare for any musicians planning a tour or similar journeys...
https://louderthanwar.com/no-deal-brexit-mean-touring-uk-bands/
QuoteThere are many questions being asked about projected European tours from Oct 31st onwards and no answers. Boris Johnson and his hot air rhetoric and the potential of a no-deal Brexit leaves no answers and lots of confusion.

We need answers with tours in place for after the Brexit date and no way of knowing whether they will happen or not.

1. Will bands need visas or work permits?
No-one knows and the uncertainty is a nightmare.

Another Aussie cartoonist who can brighten your day.  This one can also save you a lot of time by being a reliable source of good executive summaries of world news which only take a couple of minutes a week while making you laugh (not always in mirth, but at least laugh, which is nice for your endorphin levels and therefore your ability to be of actual use in real life). :)

Well, seems like Boris can do it now with the majority he has. However Scotland might want to leave the "U.K.", in Northern Ireland the "Nationalists" have won more votes and I don't know about Wales... :?

Northern Ireland has an autonomous government again.

And Boris met the other day with Ursula Von Der Leyen (I wonder why nº10 did not explode, with such an overdose of talented politicians inside?).

Everytime I see these images, if I close my eyes I see Nick Cave on a strange film role.

Today I've already had to tell some Remainer on the internet to calm down, then I've had to do the same to a Brexiter.

People are very... flammable, lately, don't you think? I mean, not just in the UK.

Ulrich

Of course with a topic like Brexit (which might hit some people harder, especially those who aren't rich) emotions can become deeply affected.

Not so much lately. More like since 2001, when (almost) everyone had access to the internet (and many trolls did flood the internet forums with their infinite "wisdom")...  :unamused:
