The Prime Minister has been found by the Supreme Court to have acted unlawfully in the advice that he gave to the Queen. Let us just think about that for a moment. Does the First Minister agree that Johnson has been stripped clean of credibility and, if he had a shred of dignity, he would have resigned already? It appears that Boris Johnson is not considering resigning or even apologising, despite that monumental and historic decision. If that is the case, does the First Minister agree that Opposition parties should now move for a vote of no confidence in this law-breaking Prime Minister as soon as a no-deal Brexit has been prevented? No one can trust a word that the Prime Minister utters ever again.
