Prorogation a convenience

A lawyer outside the Supreme Court suggested that 'Democracy' itself was threatened if the Prime Minister opted to prorogue parliament as a matter of convenience in order to avoid scrutiny of his plans to leave the European Union at the end of October. As a matter of record Boris Johnson has not prorogued Parliament ad infinitum allowing, therefore, Parliament to sit and exercise its own democratic right to challenge the PM with a vote of confidence. This is where the real seat of power lies, not legal rulings, crying 'unfair'. Mr Corbyn and the leader of the Liberal Democrats refused  to exercise their right to call a vote of confidence because it was not convenient for them. Why not? Because they didn't want a general Election they felt they would lose. This call for the maintenance of 'democracy' is a load of bollocks.
