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

Hold on. The "agreement" of which you speak introduces a proposition outside acts of parliament. That is negotiation among multiple individuals beside HRM's Opposition d/b/a Labour Party to form a coalition of MPs who will rely upon each other first to effect change in the government. Although controversy about Corbyn's ability to conclude such negotiation (before or after HRM BoJo's defeat) is ripe in the presses, terms of this hypothetical "confidence-and-supply" agreement between diverse MPs who demonstrated sympathy in the recess vote are otherwise unknown to the public. That is, minority parties' policy priorities other than "no-deal BREXIT" are indeterminate; such agreements "normally" come into being following majoritarian ascension to government by one party according to, oops, electoral "decision" of parliament or public.

Eurotrib has been treated to lively discourse on Fixed-terms Parliament Act (2011) procedure and HRM's opposition strategy to succeed the current government either
(i) resignation of "government" by uncertain "convention" such as the shame of a PM in order to petition for HRM appointment of PM, or commission of "caretaker" a/k/a "unity" a/k/a  confidence-and-supply government; or election:
(ii) "a motion in the form set out in subsection (1); or
(iii) "a motion in the form set out in subsection (3).

Which would Lady Hale prefer?

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
