According to the BBC:
"Senior Tories seeking to block a no-deal Brexit are examining a radical plan involving the Queen, Newsnight has learned."
And the idea is to use an humble address to the Queen asking her to intervene to stop us leaving on the 31st of October.
This humble address device has been used before during the Brexit law-making process to force the government to release the contents of secret reports on the economic impact of Brexit on the UK as well as Brexit related legal advice.
