Queen approves Boris Johnson’s request to suspend Parliament – limiting options for MPs to block no-deal Brexit
The Queen has approved Boris Johnson’s request to suspend Parliament in mid-September.
According to an official notice, the monarch agreed to prorogue Parliament no earlier than 9 September and no later than 12 September. The shut down will last until 14 October, when she is to deliver the Queen’s Speech at the State Opening of Parliament.
She gave her consent to the Prime Minister’s plans at a meeting of the Privy Council – a group of senior politicians who advise the Queen – at her Balmoral estate on Wednesday.
Commons Leader Jacob Rees-Mogg – the Lord President of the Council – along with Lords Leader Baroness Evans and Chief Whip Mark Spencer attended the meeting.
Why the UK is not really a democracy.. A QUEEN/KING can cancel democracy and suspend all legislation in favor of her direct representative, who is APPOINTED, not voted in by the population.
The House of Lords is also APPOINTED, not voted in by the population.
Conclusion? UK is a dressed up MONARCHY, acting on behalf of Royal Corporations, which by definition is fascism.
