Stephen Doughty, also a Welsh Labour MP, replied: “I’m heading down too, Kevin Brennan.

“Time we all were back instead of blocked from holding this reckless lying government to account. #RecallParliamentNow.”

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has demanded Parliament be recalled in light of today’s ruling.

She said: “Today’s Court of Session judgment is of huge constitutional significance – but the immediate political implications are clear.

“Court says prorogation was unlawful and null and void – so Parliament must be recalled immediately to allow the essential work of scrutiny to continue.”

After quotes attacking the ruling emerged from Downing Street sources, Ms Sturgoen added: “This is pitiful, pathetic and desperate from No10.”
