Jonathan Edwards MP calls for Prime Minister to resign

CARMARTHEN East and Dinefwr MP, Jonathan Edwards​ has said that Parliament must be recalled immediately after the Supreme Court has ruled that the prorogation of Parliament was unlawful. All four Plaid Cymru MPs were amongst a small number of petitioners in the case first heard in the Scottish Court of Session and subsequently the appeal today at the Supreme Court. 

Plaid Cymru MP, Jonathan Edwards said:
“The Supreme Court has delivered a damming and unanimous verdict. Boris Johnson has broken the law for undermining the basic principles of democracy. The Prime Minister has shown himself to be no better than a tin-pot dictator, shutting down democracy to avoid scrutiny.
“There is no question, the Prime Minister must resign immediately and a crash out Brexit stopped once and for all.
“In his short time in office Boris Johnson has proven himself to be a deeply dangerous and anti-democratic leader, with no respect for the rule of law. It would be a complete affront to civilised society if the Prime Minister did not resign after this historic ruling.”
