Following the Supreme Court's ruling Boris Johnson's prorogation of parliament to be "Unlawful, void and of no effect", Liberal Democrat Prospective Parliamentary Candidates (PPCs) for North West Kent have issued the following common statement:
"Now we know our democracy works. The Queen’s judges have upheld the Queen’s laws and the role of our Parliament in our Constitution.
They have decided that government cannot silence Parliament - our representatives - or stop them holding ministers to account.
Now we know where legal authority lies. A small minority of ideological extremists cannot hijack our country and drive Britain over the cliff of a no-deal Brexit
The Supreme Court has ruled that honesty, integrity and openness are absolute requirements of our public life."
