Boris is the UK version of Trump. He should resign, be forced out, or have lodging in the Tower of London, to face the same fate as Anne Boleyn.

He is as likely to resign as our own crook, DJT.

The British establishment is afraid of a Labour government headed by Corbyn, but look what they’ve got by supporting the Conservative Party.

The Corbyn-led Labour Party is really what the UK needs.

Wow! – How about that – a High Court actually protecting democracy
rather than attacking it as our Supreme Court does –

Baroness Brenda Hale, the president of the court, said in a statement on behalf of the unanimous 11-judge panel said Johnson’s "decision to advise Her Majesty to prorogue Parliament was unlawful because it had the effect of frustrating or preventing the ability of Parliament to carry out its constitutional functions without reasonable justification."

The ruling was described as an “unprecedented” rebuke of Johnson, who critics accused of suspending Parliament in an effort to ram through a no-deal Brexit.

"The Supreme Court ruling the government broke the law by shutting down Parliament. It’s official: we are ruled by criminals who are at war with democracy," tweeted Guardian columnist Owen Jones. "If Boris Johnson does not resign, then he is confirming the law only applies to ordinary people, not to the posh Tory prime minister."

Looks like one answer for us would be to add a “High Court” to STOP our
Supreme Court from it’s war on our alleged democracy!!

THIS is also reminiscent of what Trump did in shutting down Congress after the
2018 elections – for 35 days – to get $$ for his wall?

NOW, let’s see what happens if Johnson tries to continue on –
What do the British do?
And what do their courts do?
And what does the Queen do in taking back her nod to Johnson?
