Piers Morgan compared Boris Johnson's actions with treason when he joked that & # 39; he had been brought to the tower in the past & # 39 ;.

The prime minister has been accused of misleading the queen about the prorogation of parliament after the Supreme Court today considered the move as & # 39; illegal & # 39; has declared.

In a devastating decision, the 11 judges unanimously agreed that the five-week prorogation in the run-up to Brexit & # 39; invalid and without effect & # 39; used to be.

The judges refused to say whether he had lied to the queen – but many Johnson critics claim that the verdict is an implicit confirmation that he has misled the prince.

According to British law, a crime of infidelity against the crown is known as high treason.

Regarded regularly as the most serious offenses, the indictment is traditionally imposed with the strictest possible conviction, because it is considered a threat to the state.

The usual punishment, until the 19th century, was to be hung, pulled and divided into quarters.

Bookmakers have now reduced the chances that Boris Johnson will leave Downing Street this year and become the shortest serving prime minister in history.

Johnson must continue to work as prime minister until November 20 to avoid the distinction that he spends less days in office than his predecessors.

On that date he will overtake George Canning, who clocked 118 days before his death in 1827 and who holds the record for the shortest time.

Mr. Johnson is currently at 62 days.

After today's Supreme Court ruling, bookmaker Coral has reduced the chance that Boris Johnson will be replaced as PM from 2/1 this year as equal.

It offers 6/4 that Mr. Johnson is the shortest serving PM in history, while another bookmaker, Paddy Power, offers 5/6.

George Canning served as Tory Prime Minister between April and August 1827. He is one of a small number of Prime Ministers to die while still in office.

Canning is also famous for his participation in a duel with a fellow minister.

The event took place at 9 pm on September 21, 1809, at Putney Heath in South London, and concerned Canning, then Foreign Minister, who drew a gun against Warcount Viscount Castlereagh.

Castlereagh believed Mr. Canning was planning to fire him and challenged him to a duel.

Mr. Canning did not shoot his colleague and was wounded by Castlereagh in the thigh in return.
