A former prime minister has stated he could be prepared to go to courtroom to attempt to cease Boris Johnson suspending parliament.
Sir John Main stated the transfer – which Mr Johnson has not dominated out with the intention to pursue a no-deal exit from the EU if he turns into PM – would drag the Queen right into a constitutional disaster.
Sir John, who was in Downing Avenue from 1992 to 1997, stated such a plan of action could be “completely and completely unacceptable”.
He informed BBC Radio 4’s Right this moment programme: “So as to shut down parliament the prime minister must go to Her Majesty the Queen and ask for her permission to prorogue [another term for suspending parliament].
“If her first minister asks for that permission it’s nearly inconceivable that the queen will do something apart from grant it.
“She is then within the midst of a constitutional controversy that no critical politician ought to put the queen in the course of.
“If that had been to occur there could be a queue of people that would search judicial evaluate.
“I for one could be ready to go and search judicial evaluate.”
