Brexit chaos deepens as Boris Johnson returns to parliament

(NATSOUND) (English) SCOTTISH NATIONAL PARTY LAWMAKER, IAN BLACKFORD, SAYING: "The prime minister's position is no longer tenable.

His failure to resign is an embarrassment." (NATSOUND) (English) LIBERAL DEMOCRAT PARTY LEADER, JO SWINSON, SAYING: "...could have the humility to say sorry for misleading the Queen, misleading the country and illegally shutting down our democracy." (NATSOUND) (English) LABOUR MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT, BARRY SHEERMAN, SAYING: "...for a man like him, a party like this and a leader like this, this prime minister to talk about morals and morality is a disgrace." It was a hostile return to parliament for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Wednesday.

The day after the UK Supreme Court ruled he had acted unlawfully when he suspended parliament in the weeks before Brexit.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) BRITISH PRIME MINISTER, BORIS JOHNSON SAYING: "And it is absolutely no disrespect to the judiciary to say that I think the court was wrong." With lawmakers lining up to vent their anger... (SOUNDBITE) (English) LABOUR LEADER JEREMY CORBYN, SAYING: "This Mr. Speaker was ten minutes of bluster from a dangerous prime minister who thinks he is above the law.

But in truth Mr. Speaker, in truth Mr. Speaker, is not fit for the office which he holds." Johnson – undaunted by the calls for his resignation - taunted his rivals, goading them to either bring down the government or get out of the way to allow him to deliver Brexit.

(SOUNDBITE) (ENGLISH) BRITISH PRIME MINISTER, BORIS JOHNSON SAYING: "They want a change of government Mr Speaker, let them have an election." Lawmakers now have more than two extra weeks to debate Brexit.

That's ahead of a European Council meeting on October 17 and 18, at which any new Brexit deal could potentially be agreed Britain faces an Oct.

31 deadline to leave the EU, but after three years of political crisis, with parliament unable to agree on Brexit, it remains unclear when, if or on what terms the country will leave the bloc it joined in 1973.

By law – Johnson will have to ask for another extension from the EU if no exit deal is agreed to by Oct 19th.
