Commenting on today’s Supreme Court Ruling, rendering the dissolution of Parliament void, Wolverhampton North East MP Emma Reynolds said:

“This is a good day for our parliamentary democracy. The Prime Minister and our government are not above the law.

“It is unprecedented that the Supreme Court has unanimously ruled that the Prime Minister’s advice to the Queen to prorogue Parliament was unlawful and that Parliament’s suspension is in fact null and void. The judges ruled that the “effect on the fundamentals of our democracy was extreme” and that the government has stopped parliament from carrying out its functions.

It is surely now time for the Prime Minister to resign. He has acted unlawfully. He has tried but failed to silence Parliament and now we must get back to scrutinising the government and preventing a catastrophic no deal Brexit.”
