Is the Prorogation of Parliament" democratic ?

Supported by the Good Law Project (https://goodlawproject.org/), a cross-party group of members of the House of Commons and the House of Lords, from Scotland, Wales and England are going to ask the Court of Session in Scotland to rule out the suspension of Parliament to force through No Deal. We believe our constitution doesn't allow the Prime Minister to bypass our wishes. You can see the list of petitioners here. Our director, Jolyon Maugham QC, will also be a petitioner.

We will be represented by the legal team that won the Wightman case - the case that established that the United Kingdom could unilaterally cancel the Article 50 notice. Matters will move quickly, so we will apply to the Court of Session - which sits throughout the summer - now and ask for the matter to be heard urgently.

However, the issues are complex and the number of petitioners will add to the costs. There are also likely to be a number of interventions from interested parties. We expect to need to raise £100,000 to have the issue determined in the Outer House of the Court of Session. Of this we assume £40,000 will be incurred at the 'permission' stage.

Please consider supporting this important legal challenge - we need your help.
