Brexit news - 25 September, 2019

View from Brussels: 'Never call EU anti-democratic again'

Brussels reacted with exasperation and bewilderment. After the Supreme Court ruling, European Parliament Brexit coordinator Guy Verhofstadt said: "I never want to hear Boris Johnson or any other Brexiteer say again that the European Union is undemocratic." Another senior official sent a rolling eyes emoji when asked for their reaction. Brussels Correspondent James Crisp explains how senior EU figures have responded to the ruling in public - and behind the scenes. For more exclusive insight and expert analysis, I can recommend Europe Editor Peter Foster's excellent subscriber-only Brexit Bulletin newsletter.

In a poll that saw 16,413 take part, 86 percent of participants expressed outrage at the ruling that threw Mr Johnson’s Brexit plans into the unknown yet again. readers were asked the question: “Was the Supreme Court right to rule the Government’s prorogation was unlawful?” A total of 14,086 readers disagreed with the ruling, while just 13 percent said they did agree the court was right to declare Mr Johnson’s actions illegal, a total of 2,139 people.
