Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
change of government: "the Queen can nominate an alternative PM, but a majority of the House may not yet be able to agree on who that alternative PM should be [since] Asking the Queen to nominate an alternative takes that decision out of their hands".

Just this evening the common wisdom is reported: "the monarch... is meant to remain above the political fray" unlike a duly, well, elected "government" sworn to secrecy in "dealings" with the monarch. Unless suspect motives of the PM and Privy Council meeting to consult the monarch are detected by paranormal actvities of MPs or journalists, and broadcast "displeasure".

A source quoted by the BBC said "it serves no one's interests" for conversations between the prime minister and the queen to be made public and "it makes it very hard for The Relationship to thrive".

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
