Well there was one time .  I was maybe 9 or 10 then.  And it was Summer.  Oh man the skeeters were fierce that year.  But we were pickin beans and that was bean-snappin time with Gramma.  She could make dumplings like you couldn't believe.  Grampa loved those beans.  He had the best toolshop in the town.  Sawdust on the floor and fancy buts dropped in there for us kids to search for...

You mean like that?

Would you believe I once wrote for Firesign Theater?  I created the "I saw her spread-eagled on the floor but I beat the eagle off" line.  But I ran out of new ideas.  Life is cruel.

Bald head, smiling guy, lollipops, that about it for me.  We watched more Gunsmoke and Bonanza...

My favorite is from The Thrilling Adventure Hour's "Beyond Belief" section: "She was the kind of dame they write similes about.";
Sir Terry Pratchett, on being told about the theory that the universe is a computer simulation: "If we all get out and in again, would it start to work properly this time?"

"'Prorogation is unlawful' rules Scotland's highest court" ... doest to British Supreme Court next week.   Basically the Queen is subservient to Scotland.  Time for the English to invade Scotland again.

N Ireland court agreed with the earlier Gina Miller suit in England that the prorogation is legal.  Don't know if there is an equivalent English version of the N Irish/Scottish challenge.  All these are being appealed.  The Scottish anti-prorogation decision being appealed to the GB High Court for final review.

When the courts get involved in partisan politics, you know that the other two branches of government aren't doing their job ;-(  Review courts are designed to arbitrate abstract legal conflicts across multiple jurisdictions, not decide policy or execution of policy.  The US version is somewhat more defined vertically, but we have many more judicial jurisdictions horizontally!

Bercow at speech, but not yet out of office, reiterated that ... "Brexit can only happen by positive action of Parliament, not by inaction (no-deal)" ... even though current law says exactly that.  Further proof he is ... biased politically, contrary to the requirements of his office.

I don't think it is a problem unless he exacts his bias in his role. With a prorogued Parliament, he's currently not active as a speaker.

But yes, hard brexit can be achieved through inaction.

Currently.  Lower and High court might complete review and all challenges to prorogation and Benn bill (Extend) on Tuesday.  That seems awfully fast by American standards.  There are numerous constitutional questions that could be rationalized across issues, that either defines better current law, or changes the interpretation of the law.

"Poll: Majority Of Brits (Including A Third Of Remainers) Want Brexit Vote Respected" ... that is across all forms of Brexit (no agreement there).  The communist revolutionary cell (Labor/Lib-Dem/Green) of course deny this.  The public has a "false consciousness" and need leading by the progressive cadre.

Here is Prof. Starkey's update ... with background history (constitution from Glorious Revolution of 1688 is dead).
