A controversial resignation from a divisive Speaker
Analysis from CNN's Luke McGee

John Bercow, the Speaker of the House of Commons, has been one of the most controversial political figures throughout the Brexit process.
Many believe that during his time as Speaker, he has used the job’s neutrality to mask his personal disappointment at the UK’s decision to leave the EU. Others say he has abused his position by giving preferential treatment to lawmakers seeking so spoil Brexit.
Far from being delighted at his imminent departure from politics, Bercow’s decision to stay in the speaker’s chair till October 31 will have infuriated hardline Brexiteers.
It’s the same day on which the UK is due to leave the EU. Those already suspicious of Bercow’s bias will fear that he will no longer have any reason to hide his real political views.
Bercow, of course, claims that during a turbulent time in politics, it’s preferable that the Commons has an experienced speaker who will give all voices a fair shout. But it’s nothing short of fanciful to think that a seasoned politician won’t have known exactly how this move will have been seen by supporters and enemies alike.



Too bad there will be no more OoDEEEEEER !!!!


he has been speaker since 2009, of course this is nothing at Nabih Berri scale, but still it is not negligeable

Parliament has not been prorogued, rule all 11 UK Supreme Court judges
Lady Hale, President of the UK Supreme Court, said in her ruling this morning that the prorogation came about in “exceptional circumstances.”
Parliament “has a right to a voice” as to how a rise in its sitting comes about, she added.
She said the effect on democracy of the prorogation was “extreme,” and that no evidence showed why such a long suspension was necessary.

Pound strengthens after court ruling
From Charles Riley, CNN Business

The British pound strengthened against the US dollar after the UK Supreme Court ruled unanimously that Prime Minister Boris Johnson's decision to suspend Parliament was unlawful.
The currency was trading as much as 0.4% higher in the minutes after the decision was announced, before giving up some of its gains.
The pound's reaction reflects increased optimism that Johnson will be prevented from carrying out his pledge to take Britain out of the European Union on October 31, even without an exit deal that would protect trade.
Crashing out of the European Union would likely produce another sharp decline in the value of the pound.
Most economists say a disorderly break would also plunge the UK into recession and cause a sharp decline in the value of homes in the country.

How long can Boris Johnson stay in his job?
Analysis from CNN's Luke McGee

At the end of the worst day in his professional life, many in the UK are asking: How long can the British Prime Minister stay in his job?
It's a reasonable question to ask of the British Prime Minister. The man who can barely go a week without suffering some kind of political setback faced his biggest public embarrassment on Tuesday, as the UK's highest court ruled that his decision to unilaterally suspend Parliament was unlawful. Worse, he might have misled the Queen in doing so.
Under normal circumstances, you'd expect leader so under fire to realize their time was up. But Brexit has created some pretty abnormal circumstances in Westminster.

Another crusader seeing his seat shaking beneath him

I don’t know... last week BoJo dared them to table a vote of no confidence and they didn’t ... to be honest BoJo is a prick but Corbyn is a disaster for the UK... a labour government is probably worse than a no deal brexit...

Ktiiir mitil Berri hayda, Bercow...

The problem with a no confidence vote is, if the opposition is not able to deliver a candidate/government within 14 days, it triggers general elections, but on Bojo’s Terms as outgoing PM... ya3ne the opposition unites (labour, Lib Dem’s, tory rebels woul fragit SNP etc...) or the play right into BoJo’s hands ( he can set the election date on 15 November, I.e de facto a no deal brexit). The main point is, no one wants Corbyn , and so far he doesn’t seem willing to allow someone else to lead the potential government... fa i think it has low chances of happening.
