    My first thought was that this wretched Tory government are a bunch of liars and crooks who have no regard to the law, morals or common decency.

    My second thought was what is the point of the monarchy if it isn't to uphold the constitution and the rights of the people? If we had an elected president he or she would have been able to seek legal advise and ask the Prime Minister about his motives before agreeing to the prorogation instead of just benignly going along with whatever Boris Johnson asks for.

    My third thought was Boris Johnson should never be trusted again and must resign.

    What I don't get is, how is it ok to mislead the Queen -but more than that - WHY does the Queen not know she was being misled? And WHY could she not say no to him? I get that she is supposed to sit on the political fence, but what is the point other than pomp and ceremony?

    It's all a bunch of nonsense and people are getting really sick of it now. NI didn't even vote to leave but we're getting dragged along with it. It's a disgrace.

    Monarchists used to claim that the Queen has an important role in upholding the UK constitution but when it comes down to it she just goes along with whatever the government requests so we might as well have Sooty on the throne for all the use that the Queen was in supporting the constitution.
