Sir John Major, the Prime Minister from 1990 until 1997, has called upon Boris Johnson, the current Prime Minister, to return to the House of Commons and offer an unreserved apology. Johnson, who unlawfully advised the Monarch to prorogue Parliament, is expected to return back to the UK early from New York.
Major said in a statement:
“Parliament must now be recalled immediately to recommence its work, and to receive the Prime Minister’s unreserved apology.
I hope this ruling from the Supreme Court will deter any future Prime Minister from attempting to shut down Parliament, with the effect of stifling proper scrutiny and debate, when its sitting is so plainly in the national interest.
No Prime Minister must ever treat the Monarch or Parliament in this way again.”
