If extending Article 50 is a prerogative power, then the Queen's assent is needed, and Boris can ignore Bercow's Brexit-wreckers' bill. If it isn't a prerogative power, then May's April extension was illegal and we've left. Pick any one.

Something that’s been bugging me this week is, how come The Gov keep getting taken to court over parliamentary procedures, but no one is asking the courts to rule on The Speakers dubious decisions

I don't think the courts should have any say over government decisionsJudges are not elected to rule. They get their laws from the government of which the PM is the head. How does one guarantee if the judge is for Remain or leave.

Quite right... Also what law can compel anyone, never mind a PM, to write a letter in a specific format? That is compelled speech even at the individual level. What punishment? This is the sort of proto-fascist Europeon rubbish that goes against our tradition of common law.

Worth pointing out too that Parliament's competence is in ratifying treaties... It has no say in how they are negotiated. The legislature has a clear separation of powers from the executive here.

But how do we get the courts to agree that logic, it's been tested via 's case and thrown out?

You are assuming a rules based system. We have seen that Bercow and the Remainers have no respect for rules and do what they like. Why should they bother even to consider constitutionality?

EU is supposed to be a rules based system, but they are willing the bend and break them whenever they wish. One of many reasons to have voted
