“You will not destroy the freedoms my grandfather fought two world wars to defend.

The Queen on Wednesday approved Mr Johnson's request to prorogue Parliament no earlier than September 9 and no later than September 12, until October 14.

Anti-Brexit MPs had been hoping to use the period after Parliament returns from its summer recess on September 3 to work on a law to prevent a no-deal Brexit.

This was in light of the PM's promise to take the UK out of the European Union by the October 31 deadline whether or not an agreement had been reached.
