Who to stop no-deal Brexit? UK Supreme Court to rule on suspension of parliament
Thursday, 19 September 2019 Do we even know the real deadline for avoiding a no-deal Brexit? The UK's Supreme Court is to decide whether Boris Johnson had the right to order parliament's longest suspension since 1945. Finland and France are telling the UK’s prime minister that he has until the end of this month to put proposals in writing in order to avoid a no-deal Brexit. But does Johnson even want a deal? Those in the front line suddenly seem more open to compromise. Could an eleventh hour settlement still be possible?
The Supreme Court begins hearing whether the prorogation of Parliament is unlawful. It will take place over three days and it is unclear when a ruling will be made. 11 justices are sitting on a panel for the case, indicating the importance of this case.
