Watch Prime Minister Boris Johnson's dramatic opening speech to Parliament as MPs are in uproar.

"I want Brexit done and people want us out on October 31st with a new deal if possible but without one, if necessary," he said.

"I've been told there was a no chance of a new deal, we are discussing a new deal and this is in spite of the best efforts of the party opposite and this Parliament to wreck our negotiations by their attempts to take no deal off the table. The truth is that the majority in this Parliament, the majority opposite does not want Brexit to happen at all."

"I say it is time to get Brexit done so we can move on, so we can start to reunite," said Johnson.

He challenged Jeremy Corbyn: "Is he going to vote no confidence? Does he in his heart even want to be PM anymore? They have until today to table a motion of no confidence and we can have that vote tomorrow. Or any of the other parties if they fancy a go."

He continued: "It’s time for Parliament finally to take responsibility" and said they have to "finally face the day of reckoning."

"The court was wrong," he then said, referencing the Supreme Court ruling that his decision to prorogue Parliament was unlawful.

The Prime Minister fought against MPs' cries that were so thunderous, the Speaker John Bercow interrupted multiple times to "have some regard for those watching."

Watch the dramatic speech above.
