What happened to Boris Johnson, the other day, when the Supreme Court decided he lied to the Queen, when he met with her over the Queen’s Speech and pro-roguing Parliament was the first time in a very long time that the British Supreme Court decided that getting political was appropriate. When the decision, a unanimous one, came back that he lied, they also said they had no direct knowledge that he lied. They actually said that in their decision. so how else can one view their decision any other way that becoming activist, and a departure from jurisprudence, which is kind of the bedrock of theirs, and our judicial system.
The Justices had no evidence. They didn’t call any witnesses, including the Queen, if she would have gone, nor did they call anyone else privy to the conversation between Boris and the Queen.
It seems that this is one more parallel between the lefties on both sides of the pond, doesn’t it? When you have a judiciary that is activist, a Parliament that is activist, you kinda lose your right to claim even being close to anything being called a Democracy.
I have a feeling that Boris is going to have to go directly to the people to get this sorted out, don’t you? When he does, he will prevail, and the longest standing Democracy in the world can get on with the business of their people. Until then, the craziness will continue, and the people will just get angrier.
It seems we have more in common with the Brits than we thought.
