Queen Elizabeth officially agreed to Prime Minister Boris Johnson's request to suspend Parliament. This will help make sure that the lefties in Parliament can't undermine Brexit.

Parliament will be suspended just days after MPs return to work in September - and only a few weeks before the Brexit deadline.

Boris Johnson said a Queen's Speech would take place after the suspension, on 14 October, to outline his "very exciting agenda".

But it means the time MPs have to pass laws to stop a no-deal Brexit on 31 October would be cut.

[Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn] said when MPs return to the Commons next Tuesday, "the first thing we'll do is attempt legislation to prevent what [the PM] is doing", followed by a vote of no confidence "at some point".

Three Conservative members of the Queen's Privy Council took the request to suspend Parliament to the monarch's Scottish residence in Balmoral on Wednesday morning on behalf of the prime minister.

It has now been approved, allowing the government to suspend Parliament no earlier than Monday 9 September and no later than Thursday 12 September, until Monday 14 October.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

Britain's Supreme Court overruled this, and Parliament is back in session. Suspend again, Boris.
