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
