2:01 pm
a state was only in. the last 6 consecutive brock's it related votes in parliament in just 2 months in office before shutting it down and now that decision by boys johnson has been declared unlawful by the united kingdom's highest court this court has already concluded that the prime minister's advice to her majesty was unlawful void and of no effect this means that the order in council which led was a little full void and of no if that should be quashed the prayer of geisha was also void and of no effect parliament has not been for the road. this is the unanimous judgement of all 11 justices of the u.k.'s main opposition leader jeremy corbett has called on the prime minister to resign following this ruling.
2:02 pm
and i invite boris johnson in the historic words to consider his position. above and big i'm big day and because i got that message and become the shortest serving prime minister there's ever been. or would challenge his live outside the supreme court there in london where all the actions being taking place rory boris johnson of course promised to a do or die breaks it with or without a deal on top of the 31st many of his rival sore from the offset this is special parliament as a way of somehow securing that what does this ruling say about the government's grip on brakes it. there is no precedent for this in british politics there is no precedent for the the humbling i think of
2:03 pm
the ship boris johnson as just being given as prime minister by the u.k.'s highest courts they have basically decided that what he did when he approached or suspended parliament 5 weeks went to the queen and told her that this was the right course of action they have decided that this was unlawful and that he was denying parliament is basic g.c. that boris johnson as prime minister is essentially the servant of the house of commons of the houses of parliament it is now parents that that decision taken by boris johnson was a catastrophic lead bad one the move as we have basically been told by this court was a way of frustrating. the actions of parliament will polman past it and see no deal bill anyway lost 21 m.p.'s sitting from his own party i kicked him out
2:04 pm
and he has just been dealt a huge blow to his oath already by this u.k. supreme court decision what happens next essentially is that the speaker of the house of commons and his counterparts in the house of lords will be calling essentially for the recall of all events they have said that this is what they're going to do speak to the parliamentary leaders that party leaders as quickly as possible and trying gets and pays back so that they can do what they always wanted to do which is carry on debating change and how when or if britain should leave the united kingdom sorry leave the european union. of course rory the prime minister is currently at the united nations in new york while all of this is happening usually doesn't go to bars johnson doesn't. not so good you know we have heard call after call we generally call when the leader of the
2:05 pm
labor opposition party saying that boris johnson should consider his position well we've heard much more stringent calls for him to resign from from other figures in the british political firmament pretty unanimously from all opposition corners all the other parties boris johnson asked to resign will he do that well i don't think he's the resigning type bots he has to pay attention to this rule of this is not something that you can just bluster through in in a boris johnson kind of way they're asked to be some accountability for this government and it will need to look like it is at least adhering to what has been handed down by the supreme court we are heading towards an election of course we might guess in the coming weeks something the. woods. catalyze that or at least change the trajectory change the direction of travel
2:06 pm
towards that election if there is a vote of no confidence in this government from opposition parties what we might end up with this some sort of can take a government or other parties that they don't really want jeremy corbett the labor leader to be leading that but maybe there could be another figure chosen to hades ok thank you government these are all questions that will be answered over the coming days this at the moment is one of these critical junctures in british politics it doesn't i have to say also the arithmetic of brecht's it the same options face the government now as they did a year ago that is whether to cancel brecht states extend it leave with a deal or leave without a deal that hasn't changed but this is a big constitutional moment for the united kingdom make no mistake a critical junction indeed or a chance in london thank you very much let's bring in our guest jonathan lists is the deputy director of british influence of europe think tank and business advisory
2:07 pm
group he joins us now from london because talk about asking you did you expect this . it seemed to the end of last week that we would get into a position where the government hadn't put a very strong case forward and. just as we're likely to find this decision yes but i think it was shocking it was a unanimous decision i don't think anyone was expecting that given that we are this critical juncture in british politics the brakes a deadline only a few weeks away in october 31st the possibility of an election looming what happens next how we do we decipher the next steps in british politics it seems anything could happen right now anything could happen you're absolutely right i mean parliament has the option to take legal action against the prime minister a vote of no confidence is a political to to depose the prime minister but now this is so serious and unprecedented in our recent history that there are that there may well be cause to
2:08 pm
actually impeach the prime minister which is never been done in golden british history so that's one thing in the short term i presume that they've got the parliament will reconvene itself because it's been found not to erode and then the prime minister hati face parliament and the conference so does this verdict mean unequivocal ie the boris johnson and the british government has to abide. well obviously you can't go against c.p.m. court so the point is the 1st purgation the purgation it's just happened has been found to be a move but the question will now be whether the government kind of fights perogue again and when it could parade again over the weekend they're refusing to rule that out and that will be the next issue to be debated the case because the part that the judge the coach can necessarily judge a probation to be unlawful before is actually happened jonathan less in london
2:09 pm
thank you very much for joining us. boris johnson is among the world leaders jew to speak at the 74th session of the united nations general assembly in the coming hours the meeting in new york comes amid simmering tension in the middle east over recent attacks on saudi oil facilities france germany and the u.k. have joined the u.s. and blaming iran and accusations the terror denies diplomatic editor james bays joins us live for a preview of what's ahead james so what will the u.n. be concentrating on in the coming hours. well it is the normal procedure here which is the world leaders one by one queuing up to speak to the u.n. general assembly and as is tradition we hear early on from the u.n. secretary general i'm told he's going to be making one of the most important speeches of told of his 2 and a half year term addressing the growing divisions in the international community
2:10 pm
then as is also tradition the 1st leader to speak is the president of brazil now president is deeply controversial because 24 hours ago we had the climate summit we've had those fires in the amazon look to see some strong language from him on the environment then the next week is the big act of the day it's president trump who will be speaking to the general assembly watch very closely for his words on iran because we really don't know where the u.s. policy of maximum pressure is now going after those attacks on the oil installations in saudi arabia which the u.s. and now france germany and the u.k. of blaming on iran what is the president going to do certainly the idea of a meeting between him and president rouhani now seems a very distant idea clearly a couple of weeks ago and after the g 7 that it seemed quite
2:11 pm
a possibility we'll see him or world leaders very important world leaders throughout the day but i suspect the other highlight is the end of the day here in new york on chews day for much of the world it will already be wednesday and that's when the british prime minister boris johnson will be baking his address to the general assembly he's just the prime minister others a president so they get further up the speaking order in fact the u.k. originally was given a speaking order on friday and they managed to negotiate it up to the 1st day of world leaders here on cheese day and clearly given the very dramatic developments that we've. seen in the u.k. i don't cover u.k. politics very closely anymore but i still follow it and this is really an unprecedented situation the u.k. that the u.k. finds itself in the u.k. for the prime minister appoints him so in this storm while he is away from london in new york i've been in touch with u.k.
2:12 pm
diplomats i can tell you they are being very very careful not to say too much but you can hear the tension in their voice it sounds to me look like in the u.k. mission they really really is a very very difficult indeed very dramatic turn of events in the u.k. james bays in new york thank you now humans who see fighters say a saudi led coalition air strike in the country south has killed at least 13 people the bomb hit a residential building in the darley a province a search and rescue operation is underway on monday and a strike in the province killed 7 people were members of one family they were hiding in a mosque the deaths of 40 people at an afghan wedding adding to major concerns about security days before the presidential election there is uncertainty as to exactly what happened in the moose the color region of helmand province on sunday night the government says the army was targeting
2:13 pm
a taliban training base where they killed fighters and arrested others the question is why so many civilians died from a bride has more from kabul. afghanistan's ministry of defense says it's now launched an investigation into this attack but what all sides seem to be agreed on is that there has been an extensive loss of life part of the problem is the remote this of the most a color area this is a taliban stronghold deep in helmand province that the military says that it was targeting what it calls a foreign al qaeda fighters saying a number were killed and others were captured but it does seem to have been a multiple strike both by ground forces and also an air strike and increasingly local sources in helmand including local officials are reporting that a wedding party was hit with the deaths and injuries of tens of people attending
2:14 pm
that gathering now pictures that have been picked up by one of the news agencies in which is reaching kabul do seem to show a number of civilian bodies on the ground quite harrowing pictures other pictures of wounded children it is difficult to vouch for the veracity of the pictures but if these pictures are authentic then it would seem to confirm that there has been an extreme loss of life of civilians amongst this wedding party this comes as the country's ministry of health has just released figures showing that in the past year some 3300 civilians have been killed in the fighting here with a further 16 in the hof 1000 injured and it's in 2019 that the united nations say that more civilians have been killed by actions by the afghan forces the coalition and the u.s. that have been killed by the groups of fighters they've been fighting against including the taliban. still ahead on al-jazeera coals for
