But today, not so much.
Norman Spectator has some thoughts about why the Globe is wrong today but was right back in 2008.
Without the legal power of the PM to prorogue, we would have had a coalition government. Not for long mind you, as it would have torn this country apart and we would now have a HUGE conservative majority as a result, but it would have happened had the PM not done what was best for the country at that time.
That my friends is just one reason why we should not go around messing with these powers just because some are not that fond of the guy who currently holds that power.
It saved us once and it may save us again. Think about that for awhile before you go out and try to screw it up forever.
