Johnson advised to stay away from Scotland as he could face ‘citizen’s arrest’

On Wednesday the Inner House, of the supreme civil court ruling in Scotland, said  that Boris Johnson’s proroguing of parliament was “unlawful.”

The three senior judges said there were “two principal reasons” for the prime minister to suspend parliament.

Firstly, to “prevent or impede parliament holding the executive to account and legislating with regard to Brexit.”

And secondly, to “allow the executive to pursue a policy of a no-deal Brexit without further parliamentary interference.”

Len McCluskey, general secretary of the Unite union, and a major donor to the Labour Party, told Sky News,”My advice to the prime minister is don’t go up to Scotland, you’re liable to face a citizen’s arrest, so he’d best keep in his bunker somewhere in either Eton or Westminster.”

Labour’s Sir Keir Starmer slammed Johnson and said that he was not telling the “truth” as to the real reason he suspended parliament.

He said, I need to get back to parliament, to see if we can reopen the doors and hold Johnson to account.

“The prime minister was not telling the truth about why he was doing it.

“The idea of shutting down parliament offended everyone across the country, and then they felt they were not being told the truth.”
