THE Liberal Democrat candidate for West Worcestershire has had her say on yesterday’s High Court ruling.

After the Supreme Court ruled that Prime Minister Boris Johnson acted unlawfully in suspending parliament, Lib Dem Prospective Parliamentary Candidate, Beverley Nielsen, said: “This is an extraordinary day for democracy. You can’t ride roughshod over the principles which make this country great.

“The ruling that the suspension of parliament by our Prime Minister was unlawful is momentous. He aimed to frustrate Parliament’s core functions in its ability to scrutinise the executive at this crucial time for our country.

“It’s incredible our democracy owes so much to one individual, Gina Miller, in bringing two constitutional cases over the past few months.

“We owe her a great debt as a nation, together with the actions of those who brought the case to the Scottish Court of Sessions.”
