Gina Miller: supreme court ruling shows even Boris Johnson is not above the law


Today is not a win for
any individual or cause. It’s a win for
parliamentary sovereignty, the separation of powers and the
independence of our British courts. Crucially, today’s ruling confirms
that we are a nation governed by the rule of law. Laws that everyone, even
the prime minister, is not above. Do not let the government play down
the seriousness of the judgment today. A unanimous judgment. They have spoken unequivocally. And what I say to the prime minister
is to repeat Lady Hale’s words: “The order was a blank piece of paper”. Parliament was not prorogued.
MPs should turn up to work tomorrow and get on with scrutinising
this government. I would like to express my sincere
thanks to my legal team: Lord Pannick, Tom Hickman,
Mishcon de Reya. We have had, twice in three years,
to come to the supreme court to ensure that the government
does not put itself above the law. The ruling today speaks volumes. This prime minister must open
the doors of parliament tomorrow. MPs must get back and be brave
and bold in holding this unscrupulous government
to account. Thank you. [Cheering/booing]

    With a treaty, no accord, so much hassle for nothing. The EU has had enough of this, they won't postpone without a clear path and Britain has no clue what to do

    The law did not exist until the Supreme Court gave their ruling –
    Prorogment is not the subject of any law / it is a parliamentary
    convention / he consulted the legal profession got the go ahead / the
    screeching that these remainers are making – yet tey broke electoral
    law The Electoral Commission has found that two Remain campaigns that
    were set up less than a month before the referendum campaign worked
    together, breaking electoral law. ( as usual hardly reported ) @t
