Over the past three years, the grinding battle over Brexit has resulted in stalemate. Boris Johnson's team has been briefing that if he loses a vote of no-confidence, he would merely call a general election — setting the date a few days after the Brexit deadline. Or he could simply refuse to resign. “That's where we really would get into really uncharted waters,” according to Tim Bale, a Politics Professor at Queen Mary University of London. “At that point, the Queen might well be faced with the dilemma of whether to relieve him of his post.”
Professor Bale also spoke about the parliament suspension on LBC (Friday from 9:00) and RTE radio.
