Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Since the referendum in 2016, there has been one general election, in which the Tories got scalped, leaving May with a paper-thin majority supported by the ball-and-chain DUP.

As for the "vote for Johnson as PM", he was elected head of the Tory party by 90,000 party members, and so became PM.

Which party or parties would be able to form a government after a general election in the next few months is uncertain. But a change of government can take place with the current Parliament. Boris does not have a majority in the Commons.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
