British PM faces calls to reverse suspension of Parliament after court rules it illegal

PTI
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is facing calls to reverse his suspension of Parliament after Scotland's highest court ruled it illegal. Meanwhile, government documents warned that a no-deal Brexit could lead to civil unrest and shortages of food and medicines. The Operation Yellowhammer documents, which the government was forced to release yesterday, revealed that preparedness for a no-deal Brexit remained at a low level, with logjams at Channel ports threatening to impact supplies. They also warned of a rise in public disorder and community tensions in such a scenario. This has fuelled lawmakers' fears that a disorderly divorce would be hugely disruptive to the UK.

The government, meanwhile, has appealed the Scottish court ruling, with the case set to be heard in the Supreme Court next Tuesday, and parliament will for now stay shut.

The Prime Minister has said suspending or proroguing parliament until October 14 is a routine move to allow his government to launch a new legislative agenda. But, critics accuse him of trying to silence Opposition to his plan to leave the European Union on October 31, even if he has not agreed exit terms with Brussels.
