The four constitutional cases cited by Craig at ohrh.law.ox.ac.uk/prorogation-co… on which he bases argument court can intervene re prorogation

Worth advance reading

De Keyser, 1920

(Also basis of only funny joke ever recorded in a UK court room, in Miller)

Craig argues that these four cases are the basis for a general principle which would allow court to to intervene on prorogation

His argument is (IMO) persuasive, but look at four cases for yourself
