11.30 Wednesday - it should be #pmqs but Parliament illegally prorogued - I’ve come to the chamber but no sign of the Prime Minister pic.twitter.com/gl118cs7YQ— Kevin Brennan MP (@KevinBrennanMP) September 11, 2019
Quietly and peacefully I have gone back to sit in my usual spot in the House of Commons. No shouting or scuffles - just a quiet statement about our democracy. Boris Johnson’s prorogation of Parliament is unlawful. MPs should be here debating the national crisis. #recallparliament pic.twitter.com/nEFMIad5vr— Luke Pollard MP (@LukePollard) September 11, 2019

Around 30 MPs also gathered outside Parliament and addressed reporters, including Labour's Hilary Benn, Bambos Charalambous, Neil Coyle, Stephen Doughty, Rosie Duffield, Ian Murray, Stephen Pound and Rachel Reeves. Change UK's Mike Gapes also spoke, as did Luciana Berger who has this year served alongside Mike as both a Labour and Change MP, but is now a Lib Dem. Speaking of which, Chuka was there too!
Meanwhile, another bunch of losers travelled to Brussels at the invitation of Labour MEPs, primarily their odious leader Richard Corbett. Clive Lewis, Rachael Maskell, Chi Onwurah, Lloyd Russell-Wotsit and Alex Sobel were among the honoured guests. Bet their constituents were well impressed with this use of their time - visiting an institution that will soon become irrelevant.
Great to receive Westminster #Labour MP colleagues from @LoveSocialism at the European Parliamentary Labour Party today to discuss how best to stop the #BrexitShambles pic.twitter.com/p4x3iIWhvx— Richard Corbett (@RCorbettMEP) September 11, 2019
