Privileged Shami’s Hypocritical Boris Attack

In response to the Scottish Court ruling this morning on the Queen’s prorogation of parliament, Labour’s Shami Chakrabarti issued a statement saying:

“This ruling shows that, despite what Boris Johnson has spent his privileged life thinking, he is not above the law.

Labour will not allow his elitist shutdown of Parliament to enable him to dodge scrutiny and force through a disastrous no deal Brexit”

With Shami going out of her way to paint Boris as privileged, Guido thought it would be useful to remind readers of her own, self-confessed wealth…

All this confected outrage is clearly a Sham-i…

Gina Miller and John Major Lose Prorogation Case

Gina Miller and John Major’s High Court battle to prevent Boris Proroguing Parliament has failed. Not surprising following Jolyon Maugham’s Scottish court defeat two days ago…

Miller – supported by the former PM and Labour’s Shami Chakrabarti – was arguing Boris’s decision unlawfully breached parliamentary sovereignty. The courts are bruising a lot of egos at the moment…

UPDATE: Judges have given permission for Miller to keep flogging this dead horse via a Supreme Court appeal on Tuesday 14th…

UPDATE II: Read in full the judge’s summary explaining his rejection of Miller’s case

Shami Chakrabarti Threatens Immediate No Confidence Vote

Shadow Attorney General Shami Chakrabarti says an immediate vote of no confidence in an incoming Tory leader would be a “very good idea”, which presumably means that Corbyn will prevaricate about it for several weeks before doing it too late and failing. It would at least force posturing Tory Remainers like Phil Hammond to make up their minds whether they truly think no deal is worse than a Marxist Government…
