Prorogation: Is Boris Johnson being undemocratic?
Thursday, 29 August
Recess? What recess? Before MPs have set foot back in Westminster, the Prime Minister is being accused of being undemocratic by suspending Parliament ahead of a Queen's Speech in October. A "constitutional outrage" says the Speaker John Bercow. Not so says Boris Johnson who says he wants to move ahead with a new programme for government and NOT thwart debates on Brexit as the 31st October deadline looms with no deal in place. All this as election fever gathers momentum following a summer of punter-friendly policy announcements. Plenty to discuss ahead of the new term as Adam Boulton is joined by The Guardian columnist Zoe Williams and The Mail on Sunday's Peter Hitchens.
