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

Excellent reference, clears a lot of things up. The disavowed PM may request dissolution and go to the country. Thatcher seems to suggest a sort of gentleperson's agreement on the conduct of necessary business until the election indicates (hopefully) a new majority.

Following that precedent, Boris could remain PM but with an agreement with the Opposition aka Corbyn. Very hard to see how that agreement could not rule out a no-deal Brexit.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
Won't be nothing
Nothing you can measure anymore
