Opposition parties disagree over move to see off no-deal Brexit
Labour have continued to insist Jeremy Corbyn must be the leader of any temporary government to secure a Brexit extension, despite the Liberal Democrats' leader, Jo Swinson, suggesting he would be unable to secure a majority.

Speaking to reporters outside parliament after cross-party talks, the Liberal Democrat leader said there would not be a vote of no confidence in the government this week as opposition parties continue to disagree about the best way forward.
....
The opposition parties and former Tories believe there is no need to
add to the Benn act right now because it is legally watertight.

Former attorney general said on Monday that the Queen could dismiss Johnson if he sought to break the law requiring him to seek a Brexit extension.The prime minister would be "gone within five minutes" if he chose to defy parliament by ignoring the legislation, Grieve said. The i newspaper reported this week that the Queen sought legal advice on the circumstances in which she can dismiss a prime minister prior to Johnson's defeat in the supreme court.

Realistically, could the Queen pick anyone but the Opposition Leader?
