Angus Brendan MacNeil is today (Tuesday September 24th) heading back to London to re-enter the House of Commons after speaker John Bercow called for Parliament to be reconvened.
Tomorrow’s sitting comes after the UK Supreme Court’s ruling that Prime Minister Boris Johnson acted unlawfully when he shut down Parliament last week.
Na-h-Eileanan an Iar MP Mr MacNeil said: “Today’s ruling in the Supreme Court is welcome news. The Government must be held to account over its damaging Brexit plans.”
He told welovestornoway.com: “The goings-on are amazing – only in the worst of banana republics do things happen that then actually don’t happen.
“Parliament wasn’t actually prorogued. The Queen was misled by the Prime Minister and, given the gravity of that, he should resign. The fact that he won’t speaks volumes about the situation to which the UK has sunk.
“The reality is that Brexit is an horrendously bad idea. The mess today is political, the carnage in the coming weeks will be economic from this ill-conceived and extremely badly-planned idea.”
