Lord Doherty says Mr O'Neil is "talking very loudly."
O'Neil says one of the cases cited by the government is a reference to the US constitution, "please stick to our constitution," he asks the defenders.
"The executive cannot act with impunity...this is about the protection of the fundamental constitutional right of participation in a representative democracy in this time of fundamental change."
O'Neil "irrationality" is one of the issues that can be taken to a judicial review.
O'Neil "Be you ever so high, the law is above you."

"Are they saying prorogation can extend for a year?
If not they accept there is a limit on this power."
O'Neil notes again "the absence of an affidavit from the Prime Minister swearing to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth."
"Parliament can not legislate contrary to the rule of law, There are constitutional principles that bely that."

O'Neil concludes his response.
