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

The PM must be the leader of the Party that holds the majority of seats in Parliament.

Well thats only mostly true. If brown quits, then its up to the replacement to convince the queen that he can form a government, and has enough support in the sitting MPs if not, then a new election is called.

This would however be a massive constitutional crisis. Which is one thing that Brown can threaten to keep the party in line.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
