Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Some Conservative backbenchers are publicly saying they would vote against May's government on a confidence vote, if Corbyn proposed one. This would be an extraordinary development in British political history.

The last time a significant number of MPs voted against their party's government, to bring it down on a confidence vote, was when the Liberal Party split on Irish Home Rule in 1886.

I do not see Corbyn backing a compromise with May, when a bit of opportunism might make him the next Prime Minister.
