Chaos in UK Parliament – level 1

30-09-2019 15:00

This news is from the UK. Boris Johnson suspends the British parliament this month. The MPs do not work for five weeks.

However, the Supreme Court says that Johnson cannot suspend the parliament. They say that it is a crime. The Supreme Court says that the parliament must go back to work.

MPs start work again on Wednesday, September 25th. Critics say that Johnson should stop being prime minister.

Difficult words: suspend (stop), MP (a member of parliament – the UK government), Supreme Court (the highest court in the UK – the lawyers with the most power).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
