Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
I have seen a lot of comments today that Major prorogued Parliament to avoid Parliament discussing the cash for report. It is worth pointing out that what he actually did was call an election during which he, his MPs and those of other parties would be cross questioned by the media and the people, leading to the electorate finally voting who would be in power.
That bears no relationship to the current prorogation, which avoids questioning and at the end of it the PM will be in place whatever people's views.
