A viragem autoritária da burguesia

Ou pelo menos anti-parlamentar.

Exemplo A (Reino Unido):
Jacob Rees-Mogg has claimed that Theresa May must suspend – or prorogue – Parliament if the so-called Cooper-Boles amendment passes. (...)

However, Mr Rees-Mogg, who has repeatedly argued that the country does not need to fear the disruption of “no deal”, said that the amendment must be stopped – even if that means shutting down Parliament entirely. (...)

Prorogation simply means the end of a parliamentary session. It happens when an election is called, and is not necessarily a drastic constitutional move. (...)

However, in this particular case, Mr Rees-Mogg is referring to a situation where Parliament would be prorogued, but the Government would continue to press its agenda. Historically, this method has been used by monarchs to stop Parliament from interfering with their plans.

Exemplo B (EUA):
Lindsey Graham is telling his fellow Republicans that they better back the President if he decides to declare a national emergency to get funding for his border wall. (...)

Graham’s warning comes as President Trump has speculated more and more openly about the idea of using the power granted by the National Emergencies Act to declare a “national emergency” at the southern border and then, pursuant to that authority, use funds allocated for the Department of Defense as well as military personnel such as, one assumes, the Army Corps of Engineers, to build the wall and contract with federal contractors who would assist in the project.
