  • Britain will be the 'big losers' in a no deal Brexit, warns European Commission President

The initial hearing to determine how the legal challenge will proceed is due to take place before Lord Doherty later.

President Trump's national security advisor John Bolton has been meeting Boris Johnson and other key government figures at the start of a two day trip to London, with hopes of a post Brexit trade deal with the USA high on Britain's agenda.

More than 70 parliamentarians argue that sending lawmakers home before the scheduled October 31 Brexit date would be "unlawful and unconstitutional".

Her remarks came after a leading think tank warned that MPs may have little chance of stopping Mr Johnson pushing through a no-deal Brexit when Parliament returns.

MPs including Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson and SNP MP Joanna Cherry have shown their support for the case.

"We're asking the court to declare that the prime minister can't advise the queen to suspend parliament and stop it voting on no deal", said one of the lawmakers in the challenge, Ian Murray.

Anti-Brexit campaigners have chosen to use the Scottish courts to hear their case because it sits throughout the summer period.

The Institute for Government (IFG) said MPs may have limited opportunities to stop a no-deal break and that, even if Mr Johnson loses a confidence vote, he may still try to plough on regardless.

The cross-party group of politicians is backing the legal petition, supported by the Good Law Project, which won a victory at the European Court of Justice a year ago over whether the United Kingdom could unilaterally cancel Brexit by revoking Article 50.

More than 70 MPs and Peers have joined forces to call on the courts to rule that suspending Westminster to allow the United Kingdom to leave without a deal would be "unlawful and unconstitutional".

The cross-party group of MPs and peers are backed by the Good Law Project.

"That's certainly not democracy and I expect our courts to say it's not the law".

The Commons Speaker John Bercow has said the parliamentary session ending in order to force through a no-deal Brexit is "simply not going to happen" and that that was "so blindingly obvious it nearly doesn't need to be stated".
