Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Boris 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 judges said it was wrong to stop MPs carrying out duties in the run-up to Brexit on 31 October.

Cool story. Now do "defying the will of the people to Brexit."

Make Boris get a haircut. Visit the queen while wearing a mop? What? Are you on the Goon Show? I wouldn't be surprised if his fly was open. I thought we had it bad here in the US...

Brexit would be bad for the British working class, and for democracy in the UK. In fact it might result in Scotland leaving the UK to join the EU, and it would likely re-ignite tensions between Ireland and Northern Ireland, which isn't good for the working class or anyone else.

They were sold a bill of goods, not a hard Brexit that would leave their economy in shambles.

Boris Johnson, who pushed this harder than anyone, is their Trump. This is what right wingers do.

And now that they realize more of the consequences of Brexit folks like you would use illegal tactics to prevent their representatives from allowing a revote. Right wingers want what they want and democracy be damned. Pretending to want the will of the people to rule is not the same thing as actually supporting the will of the people.

A unanimous decision by 11 Justices.
The public backs the decision by a margin of 2:1.
Yet in the minds of Null, Berkake, and Ray, this is just horrible and an abrogation of the brexit vote.
Though the decision has nothing to do with the brexit vote.
But they know better than the people that live there.

What did she say? My head is spinning. Two years ago, the Brits voted to leave the union.

You have it reversed. The EU is in shambles. The best thing the Brits could do is get out before they're dragged down.

Socialism can not and has never worked. Why is this so hard for you people to understand?

A 'hard Brexit' was not what voters were told they were voting for. Renewed conflict between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland over the border, trucks backed up for miles at ports.

And Johnson lied to the Queen in order to suspend Parliament for 5 weeks until the deadline is reached so Brexit negotiations with Europe would be impossible.

He's their Trump. Guess that's why you love him, lying scoundrel that Johnson is.

Yeah sure. You keep telling yourself that.

That's laughable The queen is 93 years old and well schooled in British law.

Soviet Union, Communist China, Cuba, Venezuela, Argentina are some examples.

What do they and your "Democratic Socialist" countries have in common?

Somebody had to produce wealth before it can be consumed and frittered away paying people to do nothing.

They all go broke eventually.

Understand. It is my understanding that suspensions are legal. The court took issue with the length of time. They did not rule Johnson lied to the queen. So I have to believe the queen knew what she was doing.

What is too long? I doubt there is an objective definition.

For all I know, the court made up the time rule. Making up rules as you go is common practice in politics.

Supreme Court: Suspending Parliament was unlawful, judges rule

The UK Supreme Court has unanimously ruled that Prime Minister Boris Johnson's suspension of Parliament was illegal and had "no justification," a dramatic ruling that immediately triggered calls for him to resign.

The country's highest court ruled Tuesday that Johnson's decision was "unlawful" and that the prorogation of Parliament was "void," meaning members of Parliament will return to Westminster this week.

Those are NOT examples of Democratic Socialistic systems.
They don't even have the same economic or political systems in common.

Never address the point, but deflect with garbage.
WOB.
