Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Clearly, your scenario is not to the advantage of the Libdems.

Would they, therefore, prefer to prevent or defeat a confidence vote in an alternative PM not of their choosing, thereby precipitating hard Brexit to their own electoral advantage?

I think they would.

In my scenario the Lib Dems end up displacing the Tories in the Westminster power duopoly, with Jo Swinson becoming leader of her Majesty's Opposition - quite an advance on where they are now. I doubt they would retain much credibility/support if they ended up enabling a no deal Brexit because of their antipathy to Corbyn.
