Following the Supreme Court ruling deeming Boris Johnson's prorogation of parliament unlawful, the prime minister's comments have been ridiculed across social media.

Johnson said:

We respect the judicial process, I have to say I strongly disagree with what the justices have found. I don't think it's right.

When asked whether he regretted making a decision that the justices saw as undemocratic and unlawful he "strongly disagreed" again, and continued bafflingly to say he had "utmost respect for our judiciary", while insisting the UK will leave the EU on 31 October.

Understandably, people were unimpressed with his response.
