Unlawful for PM to suspend UK Parliament


Govt’s worst-case no-deal Brexit plan warns of food shortages, public disorder

LONDON – A Scottish court dealt another blow to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit plans on Wednesday, ruling that his decision to suspend Parliament less than two months before the United Kingdom is due to leave the European Union was an unlawful attempt to avoid democratic scrutiny.

The government immediately said it would appeal to the Supreme Court, as the political opposition demanded Johnson reverse the suspension and recall lawmakers to Parliament. Parliament will remain suspended at least until the appeal is heard.
