Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What if the Queen dies (she is 93, after all). Does Charles immediately get the power to fire Johnson, or is there some delay?

"The Queen is dead. Long live the King"

However, it's extremely unlikely he'd do anything to rock the boat immediately. I think he's a more overt religionist that Liz and so will babble and dabble in faith

What a wonderful constitutional crisis the UK would have!

Problem is that while the UK is busy having its constitutional crisis, Article 50 will already have taken effect.
