Brexit: Critics call for Boris Johnson’s resignation, after Supreme Court ruling

Boris Johnson told to resign following Supreme Court defeat and become the ‘shortest-serving prime minister ever’.

Critics of British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson have called for his resignation following the verdict of the UK Supreme Court that his suspension of Parliament was illegal.

The court ruled that Johnson’s decision to close down Parliament was null and void.

Johnson has had a turbulent beginning to his premiership since he entered office in July. He has suffered a series of high-profile resignations, including that of his brother.

The UK opposition Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, on Tuesday called on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to become the “shortest-serving prime minister” ever as Johnson’s opponents lined up to call for his resignation following the dramatic UK Supreme Court ruling that his decision earlier this month to suspend the UK Parliament was illegal.

The explosive unanimous verdict means Johnson misled the Queen when he advised her to shut down Parliament. It came at the end of a turbulent period for Johnson, who has lost multiple votes in Parliament since becoming prime minister in July and suffered a series of resignations from his government, including that of his brother.

Politicians representing all parts of the United Kingdom joined the chorus of calls for him to stand down immediately.
