Ed Miliband, Former Leader of the Opposition, Condemns Prorogation Decision

Ed Miliband, the former Leader of the Opposition, has condemned the Prime Minister’s decision to ask for the prorogation of Parliament. In a statement the Labour MP for Doncaster North said that the decision was “an attempted coup against our democracy”.

He said:

“Suspending parliament to prevent the expression of the will of elected representatives is what autocrats and dictators do. This attempted coup against our democracy to impose a no deal Brexit cannot be allowed to stand.”
