Scotland’s highest court of appeal ruled today that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s decision to suspend parliament for five weeks is unlawful, the lawmaker who led the challenge said.

“Huge thanks to all our supporters & our fantastic legal team who have achieved the historic ruling that #prorogation is #unlawful,” Scottish National Party lawmaker Joanna Cherry said on Twitter.

Jo Maugham, a lawyer involved in the case, said an appeal to the Supreme Court, the highest judicial body in the United Kingdom, would begin on Tuesday.

I hope their £100,000 Salaries are suspended for the period they are not working. Europe and the World are looking at the UK as complete idiots. Britain is looking totally foolish over Brexit.
