Boris Prorogue Is Happening

A couple of weeks ago Downing Street sources told TBG the Government intends to prorogue Parliament as soon as possible, within days.

Boris Johnson today said a Queen's Speech would take place after the suspension, on 14 October, to outline his "very exciting agenda".

John Bercow has accused Boris of "constitutional outrage".

Dominic Grieve says Boris is "playing an extremely dirty game" and is "behaving like a revolutionary rather than a Conservative Prime Minister".

The former Attorney General says prorogation is "tantamount to a coup against Parliament.”

TBG has been calling for prorogue for weeks.

Nigel Evans told TBG - “What is profoundly undemocratic is pro EU remainer MPs doing all in their power to stop brexit or chain us to the EU customs union and single market preventing free trade deals and costing us billions.”

“They also want to weaken the PMs negotiating stance to that of a rule taker.”

Power to your elbow Nigel!
