Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Frank:"would the opposition be stupid/divided enough to give him an election?"

What is worse for Jo Swinson: being seen as responsible for a no-deal Brexit or letting Corbyn become a caretaker PM?

the problem for Jo Swinson is that the LibDems have a long track record of "we'd happily work with Labour if only xxx was not in charge".

They didn't like Blair, they didn't like Brown, they didn't like Miliband and they don't like corbyn. Yet they happily sat next to Cameron, Osborne Duncan-shit etc for 5 years. You begin to suspect that their problem is not so much that they have a mild objection to Labour but that they have a too close affinity with Conservatism.
