    What if the Queen stays out of this because it is a political question, and a vote of no confidence fails? Would anyone have actually have power to prosecute Løkke?

    We’re into complicated constitutional law here. Problem #1 is that the Danish constitution doesn’t set an automatic default date for an election at the end of the term – it assumes that the King and Prime Minister will fulfil their duties, problem #2 is that only the Folketing has the power to impeach a minister. At the same time, any decisions made by the Folketing after 13 November 2011 will be illegal.

    But I think I will have to leave the rest to the constitutional lawyers.
