Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's "Boris Johnson and his advisers" raising the question, not me. And is he an ex-PM if he has refused to resign? These questions keep coming back because there are no precedents for guidance and no clearly written Constitution to refer to.

Personally I'd love to see BoJo marched out of Buck Palace between two soldiers who have orders to lock him in the Tower, but I doubt that is going to happen either.

In a normal democracy, even raising the possibility of defying the Head of State would be disqualifying for Office, but it seems BoJo and his advisors can think, say, and do what they like without consequences.
