Ian Dale has just explained that Parliament doesn't sit mid Sept - mid Oct and hasn't for many years. It all gets technical as some of it is called recess and some prorogation, the bottom line is that Parliament doesn't sit. All Johnson has done is extend this period by about 3-4 days from the normal time.

He also pointed out that this session of Parliament is the longest for 400 years and we are overdue a Queen's speech.

Much ado about nothing.

B honestly, if it is much ado about nothing then there would need to do it, would there?

The point is that the MPs themselves normally decide on the break and how long it is. In this instance the decision has been taken out of their hands and been decided by the Crown. The last tine a King did that he ended up on the block.

I can understand some people thinking Johnson's actions are acceptable but don't try to pretend it is anything other than the
complete opposite of parliamentary sovereignty (something which Brexiteers were keen on in the past).

In 2018 there were 5.4 million microbusinesses in the UK, accounting for 96% of all businesses. Although the vast majority of businesses in the UK employ fewer than 10 people, this sort of business only accounts for 33% of employment and 21% of turnover.

There are 8,000 large businesses, with more than 250 employees, accounting for 0.1% of businesses but 40% of employment and 48% of turnover.

Many people will be affected as their employers are hit by Brexit based issues.

I've already answered this thicko.

Worried? For myself and my own future, not at all.

For my wife's, my children, grandchildren, great grandchild, my country and it's proud democracy yes I am. As everyone ought to be.

However, not actually really worried as I believe that our system, which has long stood the test of time, will overcome this and triumph in the end.

The more accurate word is disgusted at the opportunist tactics being employed in the interests of a very small elite hiding themselves under a populist cloak. This stinks of Trump.

The Remain politicians were aware that Parliament does not sit from mid Sep to mid Oct due to the conference season. If they were so bothered about parliamentary time why did they not cancel their party conferences so their diaries were clear?

I repeat again that amount of extra time that Parliament is not sitting is 3-4 days. Of course it's a tactic by Boris so what were the Remainers doing yesterday? They were planning on how to sabotage the governments timetable.

It's politics.

BS.

There were already moves to ensure that Parliament did not recess this year, as they normally do during the party conference season. Johnson has just taken away that option. It won't be the last move in this game of political chess and as Parliament control the rules they will make the last move.

For those afficianados of parliamentary democracy, there is an official 'proguration ceremony'.

Yes, ermine gowned Lords and Ladies 'doff their head-gear' to each other, wow how kinky...and being totally unelected of course gives a whole new dimension to parliamentary sovereignty.

Ah, because 6% of businesses export to the EU?

And if I said that 6% actually employs 53.7% of all employees in the UK, would you be able to disprove that?

If I then went on to say that many of the microbusinesses and SMEs are suppliers to exporters and will be indirectly strongly affected would you like to argue that one?

I think we have already established you have never studied Logic.
