Johnson was asked on Thursday if he had lied to the monarch, after a Scottish court ruled the day before that his government's advice to the Queen, which led to the five-week prorogation, was "unlawful."

"Absolutely not," Johnson replied, according to the UK Press Association. "The High Court in England plainly agrees with us but the Supreme Court will have to decide."

If Boris Johnson misled the Queen, it would be a bad look. Even for him.

If Boris Johnson misled the Queen, it would be a bad look. Even for him. In British Prime MinisterBoris Johnson's latest disaster, Scotland's highest civil court ruled on Wednesday that Johnson's decision to suspend Parliament was unlawful, leading to accusations that his government deliberately misled the Queen.

"We need a Queen's Speech, we need to get on and do all sorts of things at a national level," Johnson added.

Johnson has always insisted that his decision was a routine device that allowed the government to start a new parliamentary session with a fresh legislative agenda. Critics describe it as an audacious move to reduce the amount of time available to the opposition to block a no-deal Brexit.

The Scottish judges disagreed with the government, saying Wednesday that the suspension was motivated by the "improper purpose of stymying Parliament."

Johnson's personality has made the Brexit crisis worse.
Boris Johnson really is a record breaker. He lost a by-election faster than any other prime minister in modern history and now he has the worst voting record too. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); He is 4-0 down, four votes lost on the floor of the Commons, especially risible when you consider parliament has only sat for three days of his premiership. But even for Westminster, even for Westminster of 2019, this was a topsy turvy day.
