#3  Hale said that Johnson’s decision to suspend 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.”

"It is not illegal per se, but we just don't like it. Who does he think he is, Trump?"

#5 I'm obviously out of date; but back in the day the House of Lords functioned as a Supreme Court for Britain. I wasn't aware that they had a Supreme Court--can anyone help me understand this development?

Also a comment--with an unwritten constitution, you invite stuff like this. Not that judges over here aren't creative readers; but at least we have in writing the way that things are supposed to be.

#6 Disappointing, but predictable. In a similar manner, this whole drama will come to a sorry but predictable end with blood in the streets.

#7 Next they'll challenge the constitutionality of the referendum itself.
