It's normal for new governments to close down Parliament in order for a Queen's Speech to be held which sets their plans for the next year or so. This year, Parliament was only going to sit for a short time before breaking up for the party conferences, which takes a fortnight (13th Sept-8th Oct. so MPs are only losing up to 5 or 6 days of parliamentary debating time.
This is about breaking the deadlock in the Commons (who can't decide what to do and haven't done so for the last three years) in order to get Brexit done on the lawful date of 31st October. After three years, no amount of extra time is going to make any difference. The majority of those who voted in 2016, voted to leave and that is what must happen. That is true democracy.
Leaves are falling all over the lawns.
I planted some violas and mowed a lawn today, and made Chocolate Mousse for when friends come to lunch tomorrow. Also made some caramelised onions as a base for tomato tarts for first course. Sea Bass for the main.We went for a cup of tea with friends in the village where our first cottage was, not far away.
