Looks like Boris isn't playing 3-d chess either.

The supreme court has ruled that Boris Johnson’s advice to the Queen that parliament should be prorogued for five weeks at the height of the Brexit crisis was unlawful.

The judgment from 11 justices on the UK’s highest court follows an emergency three-day hearing last week that exposed fundamental legal differences over interpreting the country’s unwritten constitution.

This further proves that Brexit has been an utter disaster for the UK. The attempt to leave the EU is ripping their institutions and constitution apart.

Brexit never should have been attempted with such a large portion of the population opposed, willing to fight the government every step of the way. No nation can successfully negotiate with other nations when you are simultaneously fighting a civil war at home with those who oppose the negotiations.

In all likelihood Brexit will lead to a break up of the UK. The toil of the EU on the UK will go on for decades to come, as the strife and disunity that has been wrought continue to rip the nation apart.

LOL...pathetic, paranoid ranting about Brussels controlling the British supreme court.
Johnson might survive the ruling from a legal point of view, but I suspect the British people will never forgive him for lying to the Queen. For you Yanks reading, you might not understand this, but it's tantamount to sedition and far worse than the prorogation itself.

Brexit has not been about economics. its not even about brussels making rules(none of which really impact u.k. citizens all that much). it was really about fear of immigrants(same issue ripping apart the U.S.). Brexit will be a economic disaster for the U.K. which never lost the exchange rate mechanism that plagued the PIGS nations

The Queen's constitutional powers to advise and warn her Prime Minister, or even, in extremis, to refuse his or her advice, are now subject to the judgments of the Supreme Court. If the Queen wills it, the Supreme Court can unwill it. If the Queen does not will it, the Supreme Court can oblige her to will it. The orders of the Monarch are now justiciable.
We are now ruled by 11 Justices of the Supreme Court affiliated to the EU– who are unelected, unaccountable and unimpeachable. In the twilight years of the longest and happiest reign in British history, the Crown and HRH The Queen has become a constitutional bauble and all to prevent the single largest democratic vote for anything in our history from being enacted.
