The Supreme Court of the United Kingdom has just unanimously ruled that the Government’s prorogation of parliament was null and void.
The PM’s advice to Her Majesty was “unlawful, void and of no effect”.
That means the order in council was also “unlawful, void and of no effect”.
That means the prorogation had no effect. She says it is as if the royal commission had no effect.
Parliament has not been prorogued, she says.
Holy crap. I’m not sure what’s going to happen now, but this feels pretty dramatic.
