I have just left the Labour Party Conference and am now on a train from Brighton to London. As one of the 75 MPs and Peers who brought the original case against the Prime Minister, I am heartened that the Supreme Court has upheld our case and the constitutional rights of parliamentarians to represent our constituents.
Make no mistake, this is an historic ruling by the supreme court who found that the Prime Minister acted “unlawfully”. Those who break the law are not fit to make the law.
I also believe it shows Jeremy Corbyn was absolutely right not to trust Boris Johnson and fall for his trick earlier this month of an election. That would have left Johnson as Prime Minister able to crash us out of the EU.
There is a proven liar in Number 10 and I look forward to his removal soon.
Please donate to the Cambridge Labour General Election campaign today.
Now I will get straight down to work in Westminster to ensure there is absolutely no opportunity left for Mr Johnson to allow Britain to crash out of the EU without a deal.
Mr Johnson hates Parliamentary scrutiny, but MPs can now hold all his decisions up to the light once again.
I'm currently at Labour Party Conference, but now on the way back to London, because what we now know is that we now know that Parliament was prorogued illegally. so I can start asking the questions to hold this government to account. We need Parliament sitting so that we can find a way though this crisis that the PM has created, and I'm strongly in support of Jeremy Corbyn's position, which is to give the final decision on Brexit to the people, where I and so many of my colleagues will be campaigning for the best deal on offer, which is to remain.
