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

You've got to have a horse to win a horse race. But you need to have the most votes to get the first chance to form a government, and you need to get a majority + 10 or so to have a reasonably stable government. If there is a split within the Conservative Party it would certainly make it difficult for a BREXIT government to be formed. It would seem more likely that there would have to be a coalition of 'no hard BREXIT' parties.

If Boris can be stymied in his attempt at a crash out, that could be fatal to the Leave constituency. So, is there any conceivable alternative to having Labour be the lead party in forming a new government after an election is called and BREXIT has failed?
