THE Prime Minister could be about to prorogue Parliament for a second time despite the Supreme Court ruling the first suspension unlawful.

Earlier this week 11 judges unanimously decided Boris Johnson's government had acted unlawfully when it suspended Parliament for five weeks ahead of the Brexit deadline, deeming it null and void. MPs returned to the Commons yesterday instead of October 14 as had been originally planned.

Now, there are reports that the PM may ignore that judgement and seek another prorogation in order to hold a Queen's Speech and set out his domestic policies.

The Tory Government had said the first prorogation took place in order to prepare for a Queen's Speech, but as the Parliament has now been recalled it would have to be suspended once again for this to take place. 

Asked when he could carry out this second prorogation, Johnson said: “I will be informing MPs as soon as we have assessed the meaning of the court’s ruling.”

The Prime Minister has been largely unmoved by the Supreme Court's historic judgement, repeating that he respects the ruling but disagrees with it.

Last night he told the Commons: “The court was wrong to pronounce on what [was] essentially a political question at a time of great national controversy.”

The PM has been widely condemned after, during a heated exchange in the Commons, he said the best way to honour murdered MP Jo Cox is "to get Brexit done".

The comments came after female Labour MPs challenged his use of language such as "surrender" and "capitulation" to describe the legislation that would require the PM to request a Brexit extension.

The women said similar language was often used in aggressive threats towards them. 

Johnson described their concerns as "humbug".

In response, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon tweeted: "As of tonight, there’s a gaping moral vacuum where the office of Prime Minister used to be. I didn’t know Jo Cox but I’m certain this man is not fit to speak her name."
