The supreme court ruled that PM Boris Johnson’s decision to prorogue parliament was illegal.
Geraint Davies, MP for Swansea West, was a petitioner in the case that found Johnson’s decision to suspend parliament illegal in both the Scottish Courts and now the Supreme Court.
Mr Davies said: “The Supreme court has upheld the rule of law and defended democracy. It has ruled that the suspension of our parliamentary democracy for five weeks in the run up to Brexit was illegal . Johnson has no right to prevent parliament from debating our country’s future and for Swansea’s sake I return back to work today to provide my voice.
“Johnson’s behaviour goes against British values of democracy and the rule of law. He prorogued parliament under false pretences and mislead the Queen when he told her that the suspension of parliament was routine. It was a calculated act designed to circumvent parliament and push ahead with a no-Deal Brexit which no one voted for.
‘” have no faith in Johnson and look forward resume my place for the people of Swansea in parliament. People who voted Leave in Swansea voted for more parliamentary control not for a law breaker who would close down democracy to force through a disastrous No Deal Brexit nobody voted for.
“The people of Swansea deserve a final say in a public vote on any Brexit Deal Johnson proposes with the option to remain in the EU. The Brexit question must be settled in a public vote before any general election. A referendum gives everyone an equal vote across the UK on this one issue whereas a general election is on a variety of issues and elects constituency MPs.
“I’m glad I was helped get MPs back to work after illegality of Prime Minister. I’ll be on the train back today to be back at work tomorrow”
