Will Her Majesty give her Royal Assent to the bill the Commons has just passed outlawing a so-called no-deal-Brexit? That is, will she be the one to forsake the independence of her own kingdom? Or will she protect the monarchy, which has been sovereign for a thousand years?

Of Prime Minister May's offer to quit as prime minister if the Commons approves her Brexit deal . . . well, it hasn't happened yet (nor any other of eight proposals). Yet we haven't heard anything so tempting since Stephen Vincent Benet's story of the Devil and Daniel Webster. Mrs. May is no further down on her luck than Farmer Jabez Stone was when he pricked his finger and struck his deal with the Devil.

Could Brexit result in the reunification of Ireland? Could it trump -- forgive us -- all the wars and feuding over the division of the emerald isle between the centrally Catholic Irish Republic in the south and the predominantly Protestant part of the United Kingdom that is known as Northern Ireland?
