Thread Name: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Any comfort anybody wished to take from the failure to get the proroguing of parliament made illegal needs to be taken alongside the fact that any outcome will be rendered totally immaterial as, by the time the appeal will be heard, any outcome will have been renedred totally irrelevant - the attempts to prevent parliament to outlaw a Hard Brexit will have been decided - which was the sole purpose of the exercise
The act of attempting to silence Parliament, coupled with the expelling of 21 long standing and dedicated members of the Tory Party probably did more to bring about Johnson's string of historically humiliating defeats than did any other aspect of this sorry saga, alongside which it has all but destroyed the Conservative Party forever as a seriously regarded and responsible political entity - talk about shooting yourself in both feet.
Two for the price of one as far as I'm concerned - long may we be awarded such "red faces"
