Boris Johnson blasts Supreme Court ruling and says he WON’T quit as ‘unlawful’ parliament shutdown derails his Brexit plan
BORIS Johnson has blasted the Supreme Court ruling that his Parliament shutdown was unlawful – and says he won’t quit as PM.
After 11 top judges derailed his Brexit plan, Mr Johnson said today: “I strongly disagree with this decision of the Supreme Court” and demanded Jeremy Corbyn vote for a general election.
The judgement means Boris’ decision to close Parliament has been cancelled – and it’s no longer shut down.
As the stunning judgement shocked Westminster today:
- The PM said he will not resign, despite the humiliating decision and demanded Corbyn back an election
- Donald Trump backed him to stay in post during one-on-one talks in New York
- Jeremy Corbyn, Jo Swinson and dozens of MPs demanded Boris quit and call an election
- Tory conference next week was thrown into doubt as MPs flooded back to Westminster
- Remainer Speaker John Bercow said he will open up Parliament again at 11.30am tomorrow
- Secret legal advice revealed that Boris was told that the shutdown WAS legal
- Ex-PM John Major demanded Boris apologise to Parliament
