Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm confused.

Surely, historical precedent is that when a Prime Minister loses a vote of confidence, the Monarch consults the Leader of His/Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition.

Is this done exclusively on the advice of the repudiated PM? Or is it, rather, the automatic option?

Can John Thomas of Pfeff Hall simply refuse to do the decent thing?

Is he not only above the law, but above the Monarch?

It is rightly acknowledged that people of faith have no monopoly of virtue - Queen Elizabeth II
