GMB, Britain’s general union, says the Prime Minister must heed today’s warning from the courts.

Scotland’s highest civil court has ruled Boris Johnson’s suspension of the UK Parliament is unlawful.

Tim Roache, GMB General Secretary, said:

“Shutting down Parliament for your own ends at a time of national crisis, when people’s jobs and livelihoods are on the line, beggars belief.

“After losing six votes in a row and his majority, it’s not surprising Johnson wants to avoid Parliament. But that’s hardy what ‘taking back control’ looks like. 

Shutting down Parliament for your own ends at a time of national crisis, when people’s jobs and livelihoods are on the line, beggars belief.

Tim Roache, GMB General Secretary

“The Prime Minister needs to heed this warning, get MPs back to Westminster and sort out the mess we’re in.”
