So - the PM of the UK has, and is continuing, to break the law.

"Scottish judges rule Boris Johnson's prorogation unlawful".

The worst thing about John #Bercow as Speaker, removed by @Conservatives for excessive bias and abuse of the House, is that he succeeded another Speaker, Michael Martin, removed for the same reason.

If the next Speaker is not impartial, the powers of the office will go.
Parliament cannot be held to ransom by a supposedly neutral arbiter who then meets with factions representing only one side, mocks and taunts the people’s expressed will in a nationwide vote, or sides with one political party as Martin did before Bercow.
All those saying ‘Bercow was a champion of Parliament’ are, almost without exception, Remainers. He was NOT a champion of Parliament, but a champion of John Bercow. Hence Tories sitting, silent. By contrast, they gave Tony Blair an ovation on his resignation.
