Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The question at the top of this thread was: if the Queen sacks Johnson and he refuses to go, what happens? My response is that he can only get away with that if he has the army with him. Not impossible, but imo very unlikely.

As to the rest of your comment, I don't disagree. I'm not out to defend the British mess of a constitution. I'm not sure I see a good example of a well-functioning written constitution, though. (Doesn't mean there can't be one).

Overall, right now, I think we're being trolled by Johnson bluster and Cummings venom. They've got everybody jumping around and guessing. Keep everything in a state of flux where no one really knows wtf is going to happen, is the game.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
