UK PM Johnson denies lying to the Queen

Parliament was prorogued - suspended - on Monday (September 9) until October 14, a move opposition lawmakers argued was designed to thwart their attempts to scrutinize his plans for leaving the European Union and to allow him to push through a no-deal Brexit on October 31.

Scotland's highest court of appeal ruled on Wednesday (September 11) that the suspension was not lawful and was intended to stymie lawmakers, prompting Johnson's opponents to accuse him of lying to the queen as to the reasons for the suspension.

Johnson said on Thursday (September 12) those claims were "absolutely not" true.
