The Supreme Court of the United Kingdom in a landmark ruling has said that Boris Johnson's decision to prorogue parliament was indeed unlawful. Many questions now remain about the fate of the UK, the future of Brexit and also the fate of the prime minister. 

Reacting to the news, leader of the opposition Jeremy Corbyn spoke at the annual Labour Party Conference in Brighton and slammed Boris Johnson with strong criticism. 

The big question now is what comes next regarding how Boris Johnson will decide to proceed, with many calling for the prime minister to step down.

With parliament now potentially allowed to reopen and with the Brexit deadline just around the corner, all eyes are on Boris Johnson and the government, in anticipation of the prime minister's next move.

The Supreme Court ruling that Boris Johnson's decision to prorogue parliament was indeed unlawful is highly significant. Whatever happens now, many people will be asking just how far the prime minister is willing to go, in order to push through a no deal Brexit in the coming weeks ahead.
