Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

There's plenty of historical precedent for unelected PM's.  Winston Churchill, anyone? (First time around). (Also Alexander Frederick Douglas-Home, Baron Home of the Hirsel, 1963, who wasn't even a member of the House of Commons at the time).

And my guess is the DUP quite like Rees-Smogg.  He's their sort of guy (even if he is a Catholic). It would show people they aren't really bigoted. Just delusional.

In any case pressing the nuke button is much easier than conducting a complex negotiation. You just have to wait until March 2019 without agreeing a substantive deal or you can even leave immediately, by concluding a cursory agreement to do so with the Council (and EU Parliament), if you want, and there is probably not much anyone in the UK can do about it, unless Parliament can vote no confidence in you beforehand...
