London, 11 Sept. 2019 - There's a sign constitutional crisis in the UK is being intentionally fomented and that it is worsening: pro-Brexit MPs are starting to attack independence of magistrates.

Right wing Conservatives, the ones who still support Johnson, did understand the verdict of the Scottish Court of Session (Inner House) ruling Parliament prorogation is against the law with a strong judgement, will lead to a loss of votes in the general elections they want to anticipate, and if upheld by the Supreme Court  next Tuesday, might lead to the fall of Johnson. 

Conservative Business Minister Kwasi Kwarteng (education: Eton College) said at BBC Neill Young “many people are saying judges are biased, that judges are involved in politics. That's what people are saying." It's not clear as yet what part of the British society he is referring to as there are no figures related to this serious statement and allegations. 


He also said: "The more the courts get involved in politics that is of detriment not only to politics but also the courts"  adding these are “interfering” with the Brexit process. 

Pitching people against magistrates while speaking from an undeserved space British state TV gave to a far right minister acting in  defence a non elected PM sentenced in breach of the law, equates to voluntarily fuelling conflict and factionism. Specifically, the conflict between different factions of the society in the same country is called civil war. 

That's not the first time far right Tories undermine constitutional principles of separation of executive, legislative and judiciary powers in order to take advantage of constitutional chaos.

Now, it's not clear to what extent far right Tories want to provoke a civil war, but it is crystal clear they want to take advantage of dangers and insecurity created by the Brexit (and by a no-deal exit) to easily take control of the country by justifying the use of policing and, now, by discrediting the courts of justice...

The UK Supreme Court next Tuesday will issue a final verdict over both Scottish and English cases: claims are the same but so far High courts verdicts are one in favour of the 75 opposition MPs (Parliament prorogation ruled unlawful) and against (in the Gina Miller's case) ruled against (or better dismissed) because claim was considered "inherently political in nature and there are no legal standards against which to judge their legitimacy".

Over the three days hearings the two cases of constitutional nature will find a final conclusion accordingly. 

If today (11 Sept) cross-party opposition MPs gathered outside Parliament to ask immediate re-open, it's because Scottish court, besides ruling prorogation unlawful, did not order the Parliament to reconvene as yet. There's evidently an intent to find a consistent and coherent final verdict in accordance to the two cases on the side of the judiciary.

If Prime Minister Johnson is sentenced this could lead his frail minority Government to fail and trigger early elections which opposition do not want to happen before October 31st and which could advantage Farage's Brexit Party, the surviving alternative to the far right Tories.

More than 30 cross-party opposition MPs came out the Parliament to ask immediate re-open. Lib Dem Leader Jo Swinson said "We have shown in the last ten days that we are able to work together as cross-party in the national interest and our resolve is we remain absolutely firm that we will do that".

On the day of verdict against Parliament shutdown, MPs are busier than ever: Mr Steve Bray, leading the permanent anti Brexit protest outside Parliament, said even the Speaker John Bercow was in.
