Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If Boris refuses to follow the law, Boris is acting unconstitutionally and unlawfully by definition - which puts him outside of the requirement for the A50 process to operate according to a country's constitution.

Parliament can legitimately send an extension request via some third party - possibly the Speaker, or the leader of the opposition.

While Parliament is prorogued discussions can continue behind the scenes, situations can be gamed, and there will be a united response when Parliament reconvenes.

The best Boris can do is delay the inevitable.
