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

Based on the observation that Remain Conservatives seem willing to do literally anything except let Corbyn be PM--which makes zero sense because he would be temporary in any case--it seems to me that if there is an election and the choices are Labour/Corbyn or Conservative/Johnson (or LibDem/useless-person-why-don't-they-get-how-third-parties-screw-things-up) then Johnson would win, probably with an actual majority.

If things seem bad now, imagine five years of Johnson running a party with a majority in Parliament.

I still have the feeling that the LibDems are Remain's worst enemies. If they don't manage to coup Corbyn or keep brexit going they end up with nothing to offer. I'd imagine the ex-Tories are more likely to spite-vote Corbyn in(since politics is anyway an extension to Eton games to them).

The danger is that a stint in power would make Corbyn look like a potential PM. The entire strategy against him has been to make him look unacceptable, which he is useless at countering. When he's been PM for  a few weeks without the world ending that strategy may fail.
