Boris Johnson denies misleading the Queen over 5-week parliament suspension
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has denied lying to the Queen over the advice given over the five-week suspension of the parliament. Speaking after Scotland's highest civil court ruled the shutdown was deemed as 'unlawful'. The power to suspend the parliament lies with the Queen, who conventionally acts on the advice provided by the Prime Minister. Johnson stated the UK would be ready to leave EU on the deadline, October 31.
