Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon says PM Boris Johnson’s move to shut parliament was undemocratic.

She told the BBC: “This is absolutely outrageous. Shutting down parliament in order to force through a no-deal Brexit – which will do untold and lasting damage to the country against the wishes of MPs – is not democracy, it is dictatorship.

“If MPs don’t come together next week to stop Boris Johnson in his tracks, then I think today will go down in history as the day UK democracy died. This simply can’t be allowed to happen.”
