I think if Boris asks her to, it would be the normal thing for her to do. She hasn’t rejected a law by parliament but has from territories a few times the last in 1980.

I think if the election happens Boris wins.

I also think that he could just refuse to ask the EU for more time and run out the clock. I think a no confidence vote makes an election happen. I don’t see a National unity government forming. If they had the votes they would have already taken out Boris.

That should tell you how she's likely to behave in 2019.

Maybe, but he'll have to make a deal with the Brexit party.

Not necessarily. It should do, but the Fixed Term Parliament Act gets in the way.

Theoretically Corbyn could now go to the Queen to form a Government, but he can't do that without a vote of confidence to kick out the old government. the fact he doesn't push that shows that he knows he can't win in Parliament, and can't win in the country.

I voted Leave, as did a majority of us. I still have some hope that we will - eventually - leave, proving that democracy really isn't dead here yet, though it's pretty much on life support.

As I understand such, the Royal Standard shouldn't have been lowered to begin, as it is only really an indicator of her presence. It wasn't even lowered when her father, King George VI, expired in 1952.

Though the hard feelings about HRM could have all been resolved by an immediate address of the tragedy, as she did five days after the fact.

Not only does the woman live in a bubble, but she is of another generation from most, both making it difficult for her to independently assess matters with respect to public opinion. But she does in fact interfere with politics, as constitutionally permitted and recently demonstrated by her consent to the prorogation of Parliament.

My personal opinion is that such a figurehead isn't required for the United Kingdom, as it is a waste of resources to maintain 34 royal residences, paying a stipend, assuring personal security, and so on and so forth...All while there are greater needs that should be addressed right now.

I had a conversation with the food delivery guy today, he said another lady was buying in canned goods, because they are all from the EU.

I know that Schweppes drinks are produced here in the UK, as my sibling worked there years ago.

I've got lots of canned fruit, as that is what I mostly eat, as it usually doesn't include wheat and thickener. I do need to get some tinned meat, but that is it.

The big freezer is full. I need to defrost the small freezer, so I can get a bit more in there.

The dogs canned food is from the UK, but I forgot to check his dry mix, so I will have to do that next time I'm at the shops.

I'm not sure about the Quinoa I have, as some are produced here and some in South America, but I guess that import wont change.

I guess it's worth looking at every product just to see where it's made.

I've already checked my meds, and some are made here and some in the EU. I guess I'll have to see if I can get some extra by the end of October.

Parliament's coming back tomorrow, so that's alright then. I was getting all worried that I hadn't seen Bercow for a couple of weeks.

I read this morning that the English Supreme Court has delivered a ruling, stating that the suspension of Parliament is unlawful.

So much for the Queen's decision to sign off on said suspension. If she doesn't like it, she can still always fire everyone.
