Story highlights

Corbyn called for Johnson's resignation after UK Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday that prime minister had acted unlawfully when he advised Queen Elizabeth to suspend parliament. 

Britain's main opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn called Tuesday on Boris Johnson to resign as prime minister and call an early election after the Supreme Court ruled his suspension of parliament "unlawful".

"I invite Boris Johnson... to consider his position, and become the shortest-serving prime minister there has ever been," Corbyn told Labour's party conference, calling on the Conservative party leader to "have an election to elect a government that respects democracy".

Corbyn called for Johnson's resignation after UK Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday that prime minister had acted unlawfully when he advised Queen Elizabeth to suspend parliament weeks before Brexit - and that therefore the suspension was void.
