teddy, as has already been stated, that's a false equivalence, a better example would've been to ask what if Corbyn had prorogued parliament in order to get something controversial through e.g. removing the monarchy. I'm no royalist but I would still be 100% against it as it flies against how our parliamentary democracy works. We elect MPs to debate and scrutinise such proposals, and then vote on them, that's how an elected representative democracy works. Shutting down parliament stops that from happening. Only this morning Michael Gove said that the Gov could ignore any law made this week to prevent No Deal, i.e the Gov is above the Law, again another attack on our democracy.
This Gov has plenty of form, here's a very good summary of how this Gov has attacked our democracy and the pillars that hold it up. I might add, written by a long-term Eurosceptic, this isn't just about Leave or Remain anymore, it's about protecting our democracy from creeping authoritarianism and fascism...[twitter.com
