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

I don't think you get the point. The whole thing was prepared in advance keeping the advisors down to three who would strongly advise that Bozzer's prorogation was just fine. And it wasn't a question of sacking Boris, it was a question of giving prorogation an air of legitimacy.

Who knew that the Queen had been advised in that fashion? I didn't see it anywhere, I had to search.

I saw it on TV - Rees Smugg and co. interviewed at the airport - "totally normal constitutional procedure". My point is - if they can do it, why not three privy councils allied to Corbyn? - just as soon as the House passes the anti-no deal law.

I imagine it's the Lord High President of the Privy Council's call who is invited, ie Smogg. Who only became LHPOTPC very recently. We can guess why he was given that job, Mrs Windsor probably finds him extremely distinguished.
