    PM Johnson we entirely legal in what he did. I'm proud of the Queen, but not surprised. She's a Sovereign.

    Germany’s public broadcaster Deutsche Welle went with the headline: “Boris the dictator” above an editorial saying a “weakness in the British political system — rooted in its archaic traditions and heritage — is coming back to haunt the country”. The outlet added that “What Johnson is doing... is befitting a military dictatorship".

    German newspaper Zeit meanwhile says in a report from its London correspondent that Johnson's move was "profoundly undemocratic" and that its "intent is obvious" – to railroad through a policy without the support of parliament. An accompanying op-ed warns: "This is now democracies end", adding: "It's a coup".

    "For the British prime minister, the democratic constitution is nothing more than an empty procedural rule, which he bends over, how it benefits him," the op-ed says.

    It probably sicken her to watch the kingdom of her forefathers destroyed by these globalist jackasses and the Muslim filth they ushered into the country.

    To watch these morons hand over England's sovereignty to the centuries old enemies of England.

    Proroguing Parliament: What does it mean?

    I don’t know about the rest of you, but the British – and Canadian – parliamentary system is a bit foggy to me. Back bench. A bunch of different poltical parties. How they select their Prime Minister.
    And then Boris simply tells them they can’t come to work for a while.
    Is that like our Speaker and Majority Leader telling Congress to take a six-week vacation?
    Could the queen refuse to prorogue Parliament?
    Technically, yes, constitutionally no. Under Britain's parliamentary democracy, the queen acts on the advice of her prime minister. That means that decisions over when Parliament sits are decided by the government, and merely rubber-stamped by Buckingham Palace.
    So, she does what Boris tells her?
    What a shame. Liz probably knows more about how things run in her realm than Boris or any other snot-nosed politician. After all, she been around for 90+ years.

    It's a bit rich for some individuals within the EU and the UK to bleat about an absence of democracy after fighting against the democratic vote in 2016 when 17.4 million voted to leave the EU after a simple stay or leave vote.The biggest vote in UK history for any issue.
    Prorogation(suspension)of parliament is not illegal and was last used by former PM John Major in 1997(?).That one must have been ok but he says this one isn't.
    Put simply the whingers are all remainiacs who will stop at nothing to stop brexit.

    It's a brilliant move and completely legal. Next a general election - after Brexit. It feels spot on.

    The Queen just rubber stamps the advice of the privy council.

    I think the Queen should sack parliament and rule by privy council to get the UK out of the EU. Then hold a general election.

    That's what I would do.
