THE Queen should abdicate for her part in the prorogation scandal, an MSP has said.

Green Andy Wightman said the monarch should stand down because she had ordered the unlawful suspension of parliament.

The Supreme Court found the Prime Minister’s advice to the Queen had been unlawful because it exceeded his powers by infringing on the rights of parliament.

It said that Mr Johnson spoke to Her Majesty at 6pm on August 27 to advise her formally of the prorogation plan and that the next day three of her privy counsellors, including Commons leader Jacob Rees-Mogg, went to Balmoral to request the suspension in person.

Other privy counsellors called the Royal Commissioners then took her instruction to Westminster to trigger the progation on September 9.

Mr Wightman tweeted: “It is clear that Prime Minister (in advising), Royal Commissioners (in implementing) and Queen (in ordering) all acted unlawfully.

“All should resign.”

Last week Mr Wightman said the Queen should renounce her claim to the official royal residence in Scotland, the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, so it could be used by politicians.

The Lothians MSP said it would be ideal for housing a second elected chamber for Holyrood in an independent Scotland.

Mr Wightman led a previous legal action that established that the UK could unilaterally revoke Article 50 and halt Brexit without the consent of the other 27 EU countries.

Nicola Sturgeon’s official spokesman said the First Minister had no criticism of the Queen, and the blame lay squarely with Boris Johnson for giving her unlawful advice that she was obliged to follow.

Legal experts agree the Queen has no choice but to accept the advice from her Prime Minister, as to reject it would cause a constitutional crisis.
