MSP RESPONDS TO SUPREME COURT RULING ON ‘UNLAWFUL’ SUSPENSION OF PARLIAMENT

24/09/2019  

Richard Lochhead MSP has responded to the ruling of the UK Supreme Court that Boris Johnson’s decision to shut down Parliament was unlawful and unconstitutional. 

Commenting Moray’s SNP MSP said:

“I’m delighted the UK Supreme Court has followed Scotland’s supreme court and ruled that Boris Johnson’s decision to close down Parliament was both unlawful and unconstitutional.

“The enormous significance of this unprecedented judgement cannot be underestimated and if the Prime Minister had any shred of integrity he would resign immediately. Our local Tory MP has been unwavering in his support of Boris Johnson and has defiantly defended the Prime Minister’s decision to unlawfully shut down Parliament – this ruling is completely humiliating for Douglas Ross.

“Of course, during the unlawful suspension of Parliament our Tory MP has wasted no time in arranging time out away at his second job. With Parliament due to reconvene on Wednesday morning, he must put Moray first and cancel his latest midweek refereeing appointment.”
