Huge court case today at The Court of Session in Edinburgh.

*Seventy six* MPs are suing the Prime Minister in an attempt to stop a no-deal Brexit through parliament (Westminster) being suspended.

Regardless of the case outcome there could be big implications. The case will likely take weeks to conclude.

In essence the case is about preventing parliament being prorogued. Which makes it doubly interesting that YouGov released a poll on exactly this topic yesterday.

Broadly, UK voters are against proroguing parliament by about 2:1. Remain & Labour voters are massively against. Leave & Tory voters are narrowly for it (surprise, eh?).

So, don't believe any nonsense about proroguing parliament being "the will of the people". Nobody voted for it, and the polls suggest the exact opposite.

"Taking back control"?
