Boris Johnson challenges opposition to move forward with censure motion

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson challenged the opposition to come up with a motion of censure against the government to force early elections and face "doomsday" with voters.

"I think the people of this country are fed up. This Parliament should stand aside and let the Government complete the 'Brexit', or propose a motion of censure and finally face Doomsday with the voters." , he said in a speech to the House of Commons, which resumed work today following a ruling by the Supreme Court.

Boris Johnson gave by the end of the session a motion for caesura to be debated and voted on Thursday.

"Do they have the courage to act or will they refuse to take responsibility and will do nothing but hesitate and postpone," he said, referring to the opposition.

In response, the opposition leader, Labor Jeremy Corbyn, renewed the call for the resignation of the prime minister following the Supreme Court ruling, which overturned the suspension of parliament ordered by Boris Johnson.

"I want some national elections. It's very simple: if he wants some elections, guarantee an extension [from Brexit] and let's go to elections," he said.

Corbyn has condemned the prime minister for his lack of humility at the Supreme Court ruling and asked whether he wants to respect the law that requires the government to call for an extension of the UK's 31 October exit process.

Boris Johnson said the government "disagrees, but of course respects" the judges' deliberation, but it was unclear whether it will obey the so-called Benn law.

In early September a law was enacted that obliges the Prime Minister to formally request a postponement of the departure date by three months until January 31, if no agreement is reached by October 19 nor authorized by a 'Brexit'. ' no agreement.

"Of course we obey the law, and we will leave the EU on October 31," he said.

On Tuesday the British Supreme Court ruled that the suspension of Parliament decided by the government was "illegal, null and void".

In reading the ruling, Judge Brenda Hale said that "the decision to advise Her Majesty to suspend Parliament was unlawful because it had the effect of frustrating or impeding Parliament's ability to perform its constitutional functions without reasonable justification."

Closed since September 10, the British Parliament met again today, anticipating the reopening, which was scheduled for October 14 only.

At the beginning of the session at 11:30 am, lower house president John Bercow said the reference in the minutes of Parliament's suspension would be "removed" and replaced by "interrupted."
