Mr Grieve, later in the same interview, also suggested that - should Mr Johnson refuse to resign if he loses a vote of no confidence held by MPs - Her Majesty the Queen may have no other option but to sack him, since this is legally within her power, as a PM needs to be able to command the confidence of the House of Commons in order to remain in his job. Mr Grieve, later in the same interview, also suggested that - should Mr Johnson refuse to resign if he loses a vote of no confidence held by MPs - Her Majesty the Queen may have no other option but to sack him, since this is legally within her power, as a PM needs to be able to command the confidence of the House of Commons in order to remain in his job.
