Brexit latest news LIVE: Protests due across UK as row continues over Parliament’s suspension

In response to the protests over his decision to suspend Parliament for up to five weeks before October 14, the Prime Minister told Sky News: “My message to them is that I think the worst thing for democracy now would be to cancel the referendum which is what some people are now suggesting – to nullify, to annul that result, to tell people that they were going to be ignored, after all the promises that have been made.


“Because everybody can see what the risk is now. If we frustrate that mandate, if we stop the UK from leaving on October 31, if that’s what parliamentarians end up doing, it will do lasting damage to people’s trust in politics.


““It will do lasting and catastrophic damage to the major parties in this country and I think this political generation won’t be forgiven for failing to honour that promise.”
