Cornwall for Europe, the local group campaigning for the UK to remain in the EU, welcomes the Supreme Court Ruling today. Their Spokeperson Charles Boney said:”This ruling makes it clear that Johnson lied to Parliament, and by implication, the Queen. We have been campaigning for over two years on the basis that he lied to the Cornish People when he launched the Brexit Campaign bus in Cornwall in 2016, stating that the NHS could have huge extra funding if we voted Leave. He continued to deceive the electorate when he launched the poster stating Turkey was to join the EU and millions of refugees could flock here.
Today 11 Judges have unanimously condemned him.We continue to campaign with even greater vigour, we hold street stalls throughout Cornwall every week and we are organising coaches from all over Cornwall to the huge march in London on 19th October.’
Sue Winter, who helps organise street stalls added:’Johnson should resign, along with Rees-Mogg, who led the group of Ministers who went to see the Queen at Balmoral with Johnson’s message asking for Parliament to be shut down. The decision had not even been considered by Cabinet!’
