Undermining rule of law and operating as tho rules don’t apply to those who make them has been a big part of PutinOrbanModiBolsonaroTrumpErdoganDuterteChavez autocrat playbook. Johnson is playing same game. Prorogation of Parliament. NI Protocol. Partygate. This is not trivial

@dobes  @clothedvillainyHi  there. When Parliament is prorogued, the sitting calendar (including estimates hearings) is set aside. An an FYI - this is from our Procedural Information Bulletin from April 2019 when prorogation took effect at 9am on a day scheduled for estimates

Prorogation is discontinuing a session of Parliament or a legislative assembly without dissolving it. #WestBengal 

Dark-money, unlawful prorogation, cash for honours, voter suppression, weakening the electoral commission - Boris Johnson has presided over a rotten government. He should go.

? The #DABill  has finally become law! After two general elections, the prorogation of parliament, and a global pandemic, the delivery of this law shows the determination and resilience of survivors and specialist domestic abuse organisations. ➡️ (1/5)

A Portuguese national interrupted an interview to speak passionately to Sky News during protests against prorogation, saying she had "given her youth" to the UK For more on this story, head here:

“A government which has lost all respect for the truth has lost its moral compass.” Wales First Minister Mark Drakeford accuses the government of “deliberate, intentional lies" over prorogation, food shortages and the impact on the NHS of a no-deal.

Prorogation - what's all this puffed-up, meretricious whining about its being "profoundly undemocratic"? What's undemocratic is MPs' refusal to honour the referendum result 3 years on, despite their party leaders' and manifesto commitments to do so. You reap what you sow.
