Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

In a constitutional crisis, the Palace would undoubtedly defend its opinion in quiet corridors-of-power discussions.

Boris has just been called to form a government because the Queen was advised that he commanded a majority. If that were rapidly shown to be false, the Palace would want him out and another person named in his place. In other words, the Palace would have an at least advisory influence on the crisis that would be created if Boris attempted to hang on.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
Won't be nothing
Nothing you can measure anymore
