Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
The Guardian is reporting that the first challenge to prorogation "has been thrown out." That is a rather dramatic way of putting it. The interim edict would have prevented prorogation before the full hearing, which is going ahead on the 3rd or 4th. But the prorogation cannot happen before the week of the 9th anyway, so such an order would be pointless. That may - or may not - be why the decision is as it is. I will read the full ruling when it is available.
