As I understand it the No Confidence Vote called and held by the Tory Party a few weeks ago can only be held once every 12 months...

...unless they vote to change the rules (not unlike our congress where they could conveniently change rules to vote on stuff *cough filibuster cough*).

According to Sky News the Tories are prepared to vote on rule changes to allow another No Confidence Vote.

If she really wanted to she could.

Much like our Electoral College certification is (supposed to be) ceremonial The Queen's certification of elections is also ceremonial, but, like our Electoral College certification process, The Queen could say, "I'm not going to certify that, because reasons."

During the Brexit process there was hope she would step in and halt it.

Basically, yes.

Unfortunately for us here in U.S. a lot of Trumpers and hateful assholes have also discovered we have 19th Century rules on the books that could potentially work to their advantage in certifying elections.

Watching Sky News right now a Tory MP supporter of Boris Johnson is saying he needs to stay on to pass tax cuts and carry on with "business as usual," and that in by-elections (similar to our midterm elections) it's typically to lose seats and means nothing.

The Sky News reporter is pressing him on how do you expect to go on with "business as usual" with so many people resigning.

It has become morbidly interesting watching unfold given everything we're dealing with in the U.S.

Ok, this is going to come off as completely random, and it is, but I need to write it down anyway because I can't stop thinking about it. So I'll start with the punchline. In the summer of 2013, nine years ago, the professor who taught me data structures disappeared at sea. She was an excellent instructor, already famous in the UNIX world for her work, though I didn't know that at the time. All I knew was she was extremely well-organized and her office was in the Supercomputer Center. And she gave extra credit for writing man pages for our programs, and I always did. I used the library that I built for her class throughout the rest of my academic period, continuing to develop it, in the days before such things would be provided by a language's standard library or some commercial offering. "What is this O file you are linking to?" I was asked by graders and such on occasion, since apparently reusing code written in earlier classes wasn't common. But in her case, I don't see how it could be avoided, since she essentially walked us through developing a data structures library in a semester. So. Somewhere, now, in the tumult and toss of seas between Australia and New Zealand, her decomposed body lies dead in the deep. Evi Nemeth.

New: Source confirms that former Trump White House counsel Pat Cipollone will testify to Jan. 6 committee - where the panel will ask him every question it wants on any topic, but Cipollone may assert attorney-client privilege for some of those questions.

Cipollone's testimony may therefore be limited to certain topics thru his own choosing, though it should not be for executive privilege concerns - the White House is not understood to have asserted privilege over any part of the Jan. 6 committee's subpoena.
