Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Our terms are 5 years max, but the PM can choose to go earlier if they wish (and they usually do).

Blair did everything he could to stop Brown becoming PM, but had so commpletely neutered the party that any credible alternative had already been ruined. Brown wasn't appointed, he just won by default.

We have a parliamentary system where we vote a party, not for the Prime Minister. So the person who gets to be PM is a matter for the party and not the people. and if the individual concerned chooses to resign, that remains a matter for the party.

keep to the Fen Causeway
