Nobody accused Johnson of lying last week when an English court found in his favour. I wonder why that judgement has had rather less publicity...
It had plenty of publicity. Perhaps you werenít paying attention.
However, Gina Millerís case was not that Johnson had lied but that prorogation was an abuse of power, The Scottish court concluded that Johnson had not told the queen his true reason for prorogation. Quite different. He isnít being accused, by the way. The Scottish Court of Session has concluded he DID lie.
As an aside, its interesting reading the English reaction to the Scottish court case. Most people seem to think that English law is UK law and the Scottish judgment is a bit of a side show.
Lots of people are saying that because the English court found against the appellants the Supreme Court will do the same. They even think itís an English court.
The truth is, Scots Law and English Law are equals. The UK Supreme Court, with Scottish and English judges on it must consider the Scottish verdict in line with Scots law.
What the English court decided is an irrelevance.
