Which underlines the fact that in case of a negotiated Brexit before an election, it's the Boris party that gets wiped out.
Boris, meet rock and hard place. Or Scylla and Charybdis, as he may prefer.
It is rightly acknowledged that people of faith have no monopoly of virtue
- Queen Elizabeth II
In the absence of clear constitutional or statutory guidelines as to when and why Parliament may be prorogued, most Judges would, I suspect, give the benefit of any doubt to the Government as the body properly authorised to make such decisions.
So this decision by the most senior Scottish Court really ups the ante. It has flat out said the government prorogued Parliament for the purposes of preventing proper democratic scrutiny of its decision making and to enable a no deal Brexit against the wishes of Parliament.
Of course the government will appeal this decision to the Supreme Court in London. No doubt mindful of previous tabloid abuse that judges who upheld challenges to how Brexit is being pursued are traitors, the Supreme Court may be less inclined to challenge the government.
But the battle lines have been drawn. Scotland no longer has confidence in the Government of the UK to act properly and impartially in the interests of all. Johnson is no longer a legitimate Prime Minister of Scotland.
Any normal Prime Minister would already have resigned in disgrace. There is no indication from Downing Street he will do so even if the Supreme Court finds he has acted unlawfully. The law only applies to the little people, apparently...

No doubt Boris will claim she may have misunderstood...
(subtext - she's 93 after all)
I don't think the bedrock of Conservative party will appreciate the Queen being abused in this way.
Indeed, what if One decided to abdicate in consequence?
Any other PM would have resigned in disgrace, but this PM knows no boundaries. Quite like Trump, in that regard.

The bedrock of the Conservative Party is also 93, or thereabouts, and certainly no less confused.
Polls suggest they're perfectly happy with any law-breaking as long as they get their mythical Brexit.
