British prime minister denies lying to Queen in Brexit crisis
Thursday, 12 September 2019 British Prime Minister Boris Johnson denied Thursday that he had lied to QueenElizabeth II when requesting she suspend parliament this month in the run-up to Brexit. Johnson asked the British head of state to shutter parliament for five weeks from last Tuesday, claiming it was necessary ahead of rolling out a new domestic agenda. The unusually long suspension -- known as prorogation -- was widely seen as a bid to thwart opposition to a no-deal Brexit on October 31 and provoked uproar across the political spectrum as well as legal challenges.
