The former prime minister, Sir John Major has called on Boris Johnson to apologise for proroguing parliament bring the Queen into dispute.
Sir John said, “No Prime Minister must ever treat the monarch or Parliament in this way again.
“This was a case that should never have had to be considered, and it gave me no pleasure to be pitted against a government and prime minister of my own Party.
“Parliament must now be recalled immediately to recommence its work, and to receive the prime minister’s unreserved apology.
“I hope this ruling from the Supreme Court will deter any future prime minister from attempting to shut down parliament, with the effect of stifling proper scrutiny and debate, when its sitting is so plainly in the national interest.”
