Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I doubt the UK Supreme Court will find the prorogation illegal - at most somewhat excessive - and perhaps therefore order an earlier return of Parliament as the most appropriate remedy - something I don't think Boris would be too bothered about.

After all, what can Parliament do, prior to October 19th.? Listen to an earlier Queen's speech? How wonderful! Listen to Ministers proclaim what wonderful things they will do with the money they will receive in a budget that will never happen? Riveting. Ventilate its own divisions as to what should happen next? Music to Boris' ears...

The Queen may not receive visitors not sent by her Ministers, and even if she does, one will listen politely and seek the advice and guidance of the PM and President of the Privy Council (Rees-Mogg). Who's this Bercow chappie?

Possession is 9/10ths of the law, and therefore Boris can at most be found guilty of 10% of it. A way will be found for him to purge his contempt. Put not your trust in lawyers! [Psalm 146:3-5 King James Version (KJV), Schnittger Edition].

From the mouths of hebrew prophets to you ears, but of course. British convention demands "flexibility."

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
