Justice Hale says prorogation is not a proceeding in parliament. Although it takes place in parliament, it is not their decision. It is something that has been imposed on them from outside.

The travel company Thomas Cook has collapsed today, so if you’re not already in Paris you’ll have to find another way to visit Notre Dame .

Mind you, the big bosses still got a lot of money even if they didn’t know how to run a company well.
