Close to? The way she's acting suggests she's well past that point.

Could the Queen demand a new election? New Ref? etc?

On the contrary, I would hope until an extension or retraction of A.50 is agreed the Queen declines to dissolve Parliament even if requested.

That will NEVER happened ( retraction of A.50 ) unless another Ref took place, and I would be careful what you wish for. Because if this did not happy, all hell would break loose.

Yes, I'm sure all hell would break loose if article 50 was revoked. Look at the massive angry crowds that turned up for Farage's march.

That's pretty obvious, there's only about 50 of them left.

There will be 1 million people on the streets of London tomorrow demanding a PV or revocation. Meanwhile there's 50 geriatrics and 50 dead bodies on the A1.

Wow 1 million people, still 1million who still will not listen to the other side concerns. You could fix this whole issues right now if people would stop being bigots ( boths side since there is no tolerance ) and everyone started understand everyone concerns, were going to continue with this magic roundabout.

That has always been the underlying problem about debate. As soon as Remain lost, there just slagged Leave voters, some of the MPS have been even worse.

Resolve people underlying problems and brexit will be fixed, but it won't happen because there is no too much hatred...

Maybe if our leadership had shown any sign of compromise or consensus gathering, there would have been a chance of the two sides merging. Instead we're now at the end of a 1000 day process of refusing to compromise or confirm which direction things should move. How anyone can be surprised that the different groups have moved apart is beyond me.

It's been pointed out quite a bit in the last few days (why it's taken so long is a mystery to me) that while leave may have had the biggest vote in history, due to the fragmentation of that vote, between no-deal f*** the EU and socialist wonderland bring on the red tape, remain actually holds the biggest democratic mandate in UK history. If anyone can see a way forward where more than 48% of the country are happy, I'm all ears.

But which remain did they want? Remain under the old rules, remain under David Cameron's renegotiation, remain and push for reform, remain and drop the opt-outs, remain and integrate further to allow projects like the EU Army to come to fruition...

EDIT: The largest democratic mandate (presumably meaning the largest number of voters picking an option) bit isn't true, as while the Leave vote exceeded the 1975 EEC Yes vote, Remain did not.
