Roll of honour: our legal action to stop the suspension of Parliament

You will have seen how the Good Law Project, alongside a cross-party group of politicians, has launched legal action to prevent Prime Minister Boris Johnson from suspending Parliament. He has threatened to suspend Parliament to force through a No Deal Brexit – but that’s not how democracy works. It is for Parliament to decide what happens with Brexit.

We are very pleased to announce that more politicians have joined the cause. Here is the latest list of petitioners:
