UK parliament reconvenes after prorogation ruled unlawful

"It's very simple - if you want an election, get an extension and let's have an election," Jeremy Corbyn said.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson returned home from a foreign trip on Wednesday still intent on delivering Brexit on October 31.

Before the suspension, parliament had passed a law requiring Johnson to ask the EU to push back the deadline if no exit deal was agreed by Oct.


Corbyn said he and other opposition legislators would focus on ensuring that Johnson abided by that law.
