Any government minister or MP even bothered to explain why their (already quite feeble) justification for prorogation that it was only five days have been torn up? They prorogued at the earliest opportunity (again no explanation) so now lost time is nine days, not five.
NB of course in reality much longer as Commons would have sat or at least conducted some committee work during recess.
But what I find remarkable is how little attention or regard is paid to promises and assurances that were made ad nauseam only days ago. Gone. Vanished. Forgotten.
On this subject it’s interesting that ministers have also given up pretending this is about a new legislative programme, the supposed justification a week ago. Indeed the cabinet office response to the prorogation petition is clear, in its first paragraph, about the reality.
