Queen Elizabeth has approved British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's request to suspend parliament for five weeks until 14 October.

MPs have accused Johnson of using the suspension to push through a no-deal Brexit, something he has denied.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said that suspending parliament was "not acceptable", while Scottish First Minister commented that it was not democracy, but dictatorship.

We were joined by Gavin Esler, author of Brexit Without The Bullshit, and Aoife O'Donoghue, Professor of International Law and Global Governance at Durham Law School, to discuss the story further.
