There is widespread argument in the UK Widespread argument over British parliament suspension primarily aimed at preventing the planned rebellion of MPs against a no-deal.

Many in the country, find the parliament leave as the true attack on democracy. More than one million people have signed an online petition.

The public, which is usually split in the middle, clearly opposed the British parliament suspension. According to a flash poll, 47 percent of respondents voted against the prorogation, only 24 percent in favor of it and 29 percent were in a draw.

Lord Kerslake, formerly senior official in the United Kingdom, described Thursday’s compulsory leave of absence as a gross abuse of power by the Prime Minister and recommended that his successor be replaced by the flower in protest.

Tory MP Sam Gyimah even saw the wrecking ball crush British democracy. The government, in turn, spoke of fabricated excitement coming from people who never wanted to leave the European Union.

The opponents of the decision argue differently, It is not the British parliament suspension that we challenge, but the intention of the leave, said activist Gina Miller, who has since called the High Court in London. She had once complained victoriously. Miller expressed her opinion that the government can not initiate withdrawal under Article 50 without parliamentary approval.

On Thursday, two more courts, in Scotland and Northern Ireland, advised on compulsory leave.

However, most constitutional experts are skeptical that leaves of absence can be challenged in court.

Johnson’s move is politically shocking, former Supreme Court judge Lord Sumption told the BBC. When asked whether Johnson’s decision is lawful, Sumption replied, “Yes”. Therefore, he does not believe that lawsuits succeed. All executive measures of a government are motivated by political considerations, he said.
