Northern Irish judges rule Boris Johnson prorogation won’t harm the peace process

Was anybody expecting an earth-shattering turnabout as a result of this ruling?

I wasn’t. Here’s what we know at the time of writing:

Judges in Belfast have ruled that Boris Johnson’s decision to suspend parliament for five weeks was lawful and would not damage the Northern Ireland peace process.

Lawyers for the applicants in Belfast argued that a no-deal Brexit on 31 October would undermine agreements involving the UK and Irish governments that were struck during the peace process and which underpin cross-border co-operation between the two nations.

    Am I living in a fiction? Is The Matrix real? If I had written this, no publisher would touch me, so implausible is this series of events through which we are, apparently, living! What will the next installment bring? In terms of drama and plot twists, this is better than anything that I have seen on television! Maybe, there’ll be a part for me, when it’s all finished and dramatised. H.B.O., or Netflix, please!

      Why should the Judiciary be prejudiced? Having read some of the verdict, I totally understand why judges would not wish to get involved and also why people are totally distrusting of politicians.
