ATTORNEY General Geoffrey Cox has let slip plans for a THIRD election vote – as he ripped into disgraceful Labour MPs for stopping the PM from going to the people.
After Boris Johnson dashed back from New York to address furious MPs this afternoon, he told the Commons to watch out for an “election motion that will be coming before the house shortly”.
Westminster is reeling today after the dramatic ruling from the Supreme Court yesterday which ruled Boris Johnson’s advice to the Queen on shutting down Parliament was unlawful.
MPs went back to the Commons today and immediately vowed to begin trying to wreck Brexit once again.
But Attorney General Sir Geoffrey launched a furious rant, tearing them to shreds over their cowardly stance.
Just hours before the PM was set to address Parliament, he fumed: “This Parliament is a dead Parliament. It should no longer sit. It has no moral right to sit on these green benches.
“Given the opportunity, given since I am asked, let me tell them the truth – they could vote no confidence at any time but they are too cowardly.
“They could agree to a motion to allow this house to dissolve but they are too cowardly.
“This parliament should have the courage to face the electorate. But it won’t.
“Because so many of them are really all about preventing us from leaving the European Union.
“The time is coming Mr Speaker, when even these turkeys won’t be able to prevent Christmas!”
The Cabinet minister blasted Mr Corbyn for repeatedly refusing to vote for an election – despite calling for one for years.
The Attorney General, who admitted the Government did “get it wrong” over the legal advice given during the court case, said Labour MPs were “clinging to their green benches for another few undeserved years”.
