Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Corbyn's preferred successor would be as much, or more, opposed by the Lib Dems and dissident Conservatives than Corbyn himself. There would not be a parliamentary majority for him or her.

I would also like to comment on the suggestion of a motion of no confidence in the Prime Minister personally rather than the government. Corbyn already tried this tactic, against Theresa May, but her government refused to allocate the motion any parliamentary time as it was not a Fixed Term Parliaments Act motion.

I suppose the opposition could try to take over the timetable to move a no confidence in Johnson motion, but even if they succeeded I suspect the Prime Minister would say that this is not a Fixed Term Parliaments Act motion of no confidence so I will ignore it.
