- Story Text:Morning commuters in London said on Wednesday (September 25) there was no end in sight to the UK's political crisis a day after the UK's Supreme Court ruled Prime Minister Boris Johnson had unlawfully suspended parliament.
The House of Commons, where Johnson has no majority, will reconvene at 1130 a.m. (1030 GMT) after the Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday (September 24) that his decision to suspend it for five weeks was unlawful and therefore null and void.
"Everything just seems so bumpy at the moment," said local resident and audio-visual engineer Collin Ellington. "It's just a bit of a concern where we're going."
Johnson is determined to lead Britain out of the European Union on October 31, with or without an exit agreement, but most members of parliament are equally determined to prevent a so-called "no-deal Brexit" scenario.
It is unclear exactly what will happen next. Johnson has rejected calls from some political opponents to resign. The main opposition Labour Party is itself deeply split over Brexit, and appears to be vacillating about whether to launch a motion of no-confidence to try and bring Johnson down.
