TSSA Statement - Supreme Court Ruling On Unlawful Suspension of Parliament

24 September 2019

TSSA General Secretary, Manuel Cortes, has called for the "immediate recall of Parliament" after the UK Supreme Court's unanimous ruling that Boris Johnson unlawfully suspended Parliament.

Manuel Cortes said: “This is a damning decision by the highest court in the land. Parliament must be recalled without delay and Boris Johnson himself should be hauled before the courts.

“This will be devastating news for a Tory Prime Minister who misled the Queen and the entire country in an effort to subvert democracy. Johnson must answer for his actions in Parliament and in the courts.

“Our union has been calling Johnson a liar for some time – now the highest court on the land has ruled he is a liar. His position is untenable, and he should resign.”
