“No one is above the law” – Shami Chakrabarti comments on Supreme Court’s decision

Commenting on the Supreme Court’s decision that the proroguing of parliament was “unlawful, void and of no effect”, Shami Chakrabarti, Labour’s Shadow Attorney General said “Boris Johnson has been called out today by the Supreme Court, the highest court in these islands. He has behaved like a tin-pot dictator.

“No one is above the law. Not even Boris Johnson and his arrogant, entitled chums are above the law. They have been getting away with things all their lives, but today they have been called to account.

“He should be ashamed of himself. He knows better. He had an elite education. He had every opportunity in life and he has behaved in the most appalling way and he’s been called out.

“Boris Johnson needs to reflect on this judgement and consider his position.”
