Paul Craig is perhaps the UK's leading authority on constitutional law

If Craig is intervening, and in such stark terms, then things are afoot

Expect the courts to consider the prorogation litigation seriously
I had previously thought the chances of the courts intervening on prorogation to be zero, not least for want of remedy

Still think the claims will fail, as ultimately not law but politics

But getting sense judges are not going to make this an easy win for the government
That Craig piece may be as significant as the Hickman et al piece after the referendum which ultimately led to Pannick's victory in the Miller case

Another Silver Surfer of a legal article, heralding a big crunch
Reading that Craig piece makes you think @thatginamiller and Pannick may well pull off another legal victory and that the courts may well strike down the prorogation

On balance unlikely, but the chances are certainly no longer zero
@thatginamiller ps I am sometimes incorrectly described as a "constitutional expert"

I am not

I am merely a constitutionalist who believes you either take constitutional principles seriously or you do not

Craig *is* a constitutional expert, and that is what constitutional expertise looks like
