Boris Johnson says he can’t return to Parliament because his Thomas Cook flight from New York to London has been cancelled.
The news comes after the Supreme Court ruled, on Tuesday, that the government’s decision to prorogue Parliament for five weeks was unlawful.
Following the historic judgment MP’s are expected to return to Parliament on Wednesday, but Mr Johnson’s team say the Prime Minister is struggling to find a flight back to the UK before October 31st.
“The prime minister is of course very keen to return to London and get on with parliamentary business as directed by the Supreme Court,” Jacob Rees-Mogg told reporters.
“But we must prioritise all available flights for repatriating holidaymakers stranded by Thomas Cook’s recent collapse.
“Mr Johnson has personally requested that the plane chartered for his return to the UK is used to rescue a group of young British women trapped on a hen do in Magaluf, and does not expect to return to the UK until early November.”
Johnson, along with several other world leaders, is attending a United Nations meeting in New York to consider talking about the possibility of perhaps doing a little something about climate change, after 15-year-old Greta Thunberg showed them what leadership looks like.
