Challenge to Parliament suspension rejected. Johnson will have a job to do, though… 

This Writer predicted that Gina Miller’s high court challenge against Boris Johnson’s five-week prorogation of Parliament would fail, and I was right.

I was also right about the challenge in the Scottish courts, which also failed – so I’ve scored two-for-two.

It shouldn’t worry anybody.

Boris Johnson has painted himself into a corner.

Parliament has decided that the UK cannot leave the EU without a satisfactory withdrawal agreement – or at least, it will have done so by the time the suspension comes into force.

As Mr Johnson seems not to want to start a new session afterwards, but to have a general election instead, he has an opportunity to use all this extra time by securing just such an agreement.

That’s if he still wants the UK to leave the EU on October 31, of course. If he doesn’t – and we don’t – then his premiership will be confirmed as the biggest failure of any UK prime minister’s, ever.

(It already is, but this will confirm it.)

Brussels has said it is still waiting for any overture at all from Mr Johnson.

It will be interesting to see if he can be bothered to do anything – or if he has already given up.

      Perhaps he is lying down in front of the bulldozers at Heathrow.

      That issue could help cost him his seat.
