    Is a vote of no confidence to get rid of Boris at all a possibility? Sounds like they need to move fast. Brits are going to need all the Saucy Sauce they can get to get them through these trying times.

    he's desolved Parliment - and anyway since he is convinced he is going to crash out of the EU without an economic plan - who would want ot be in charge of that? Leave it to the BlowJob so that is all he is remembered for.

    When Farmers & Industry all say "this is going to bankrupt us" you would have thought that they would start to listen but noooooo

    I thought that the Queen had no real powers any more. How the heck is it that BoJo can go to her to dissolve Parliament??

    From parliament.uk:
    Along with the House of Commons and the House of Lords, the Crown is an integral part of the institution of Parliament. The Queen plays a constitutional role in opening and dissolving Parliament and approving Bills before they become law

    Parliament

    The highest legislative authority in the United Kingdom. Made up of the House of Commons, House of Lords and the Queen (who is the UK's current hereditary monarch).
    Crown

    This is another way of referring to the monarchy - which is the oldest part of the system of government in this country. Time has reduced the power of the monarchy, and today it is broadly ceremonial. The current UK monarch is Queen Elizabeth II.
    Appointing a government

    The day after a general election the Queen invites the leader of the party that won the most seats in the House of Commons to become Prime Minister and to form a government.
    Opening and dissolving Parliament

    The Crown opens Parliament through the State Opening (marking the beginning of the Parliamentary year). The Crown only dissolves Parliament before a general election under conditions laid out in the Fixed Term Parliament Act 2011 (dissolution).


    Queen's Speech

    The Crown informs Parliament of the government's policy ideas and plans for new legislation in a speech delivered from the throne in the House of Lords. Although the Queen makes the speech the government draws up the content.
    Royal Assent

    When a Bill has been approved by a majority in the House of Commons and the House of Lords it is formally agreed to by the Crown. This is known as the Royal Assent. This turns a Bill into an Act of Parliament, allowing it to become law in the UK.

    He can't dissolve Parliament without her say so, even if the request is mostly ceremonial. The Queen doesn't really get much choice but to agree.

    I don't know what any of this means, but this thread makes it seem like there is trouble ahead.

    “No deal” will bankrupt the country.
    cocksucker Johnson doesn’t care because he & His cronies have already got all their £££ out of the country.
    With “no deal” anything that comes from the EU (90% of our food) will be subject to tariffs & increased prices.
    With “no deal” we can’t sell certain products into the EU.
