A PETITION CALLING FOR THE QUEEN TO PROROGUE PARLIAMENT UNTIL THE 2ND APRIL HAS AMMASED THOUSANDS OF SIGNATURES ONLINE.
MPs are set to vote once again on the Prime Minister’s Brexit plan this month.
It is widely believed that her deal will not receive the backing of MPs after failing to secure legal changes to the Customs Union backstop.
Some are now calling for the Queen herself to prorogue parliament (Progogue: “discontinue a session of (a parliament or other legislative assembly) without dissolving it.”) in an attempt to stop any legislation blocking the UK leaving the EU with no deal on the 29th March. She would do so on the advice of the Prime Minister the petition states.
The petition is titled ‘The Prime Minister should advise Her Majesty the Queen to prorogue Parliament’ and CAN BE SIGNED BY CLICKING HERE.
It states: “The Prime Minister should advise Her Majesty the Queen to prorogue Parliament suspending the current parliamentary session until 2nd April 2019 to prevent any attempts by parliamentarians to thwart Brexit on 29th March 2019. Preparations for no-deal/WTO will continue.
“The Prime Minister’s deal has been rejected. No further deal is available from the EU. Remaining in the EU is not an option. Extension or revocation of Article 50 is not an option.
I believe the British people voted to leave with no mention of a deal and that WTO rules, to which Britain will default on 29th March 2019, are in Britain’s best interests. We may get a better deal after, but not until, we have left.”

In a recent speech, Jacob Rees-Mogg spoke on the possibility of the Queen prorogue Parliament in person, referring back to “1832, when they were going through the Reformation, there was an occasion when it was thought necessary that the King might have to come in person to dissolve Parliament.
“The practice was, and I imagine it still is, that if the King turns up in person to prorogue Parliament any discussion stops straight away.
“Whereas if it’s done by commissioners, we can carry on gassing on for a little bit longer.
“I hope it will not be necessary for her Majesty’s stay at Sandringham to be interrupted by her in person to prorogue Parliament.
“We do not want constitutional crisis, we want to observe constitutional norms.”
Right on Jacob!
