Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That's pretty facile, frankly. "The Queen" means the advisers at the Palace and high civil servants who deal with Palace relations. Either they are sold out to a top-level conspiracy, or they will apply the conventional rules. Boris will be advised to resign, the leader of the new majority will be invited to form a government.

If Boris wants to hole up in N° 10 (or 11, where it seems he has his abode) is immaterial. He will no longer be running the government. If he really wants to get silly, he can hide out in the broom cupboard until some discreet political policemen show up to winkle him out of there.

But, unless he really has the guns behind him, this is all rather pointless speculation. And guns work fine against a written constitution, too.

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