Prorogation unlawful – Shami Chakrabarti responds

Shami Chakrabarti, Labour’s Shadow Attorney General, commenting on the Scottish appeal court declaration that Boris Johnson’s decision to suspend parliament was unlawful, said:

“This ruling shows that, despite what Boris Johnson has spent his privileged life thinking, he is not above the law.

“Labour will not allow his elitist shutdown of parliament to enable him to dodge scrutiny and force through a disastrous No Deal Brexit.”
