Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The LibDems won't replace the Tories. They're too closely associated with the coalition.

Reality is the Tories still have a lot of support in the UK. Enough voters are some combination of misinformed, stupid, tribal, or just plain nasty to keep the Tories within five percent of Labour.

Anyway - latest news is the EU is going to say "Non" to May's request for more time without an explicit plan. Which presumably means either a GE or a People's Vote.

And the negotiations with Corbyn more or less amounted to "I want you to support my Withdrawal Agreement, and beyond that I have no interest in anything you say here."

So currently, unless Parliament gets its act together next week and forces a GE or a PV - or the EU relents at the last minute - it's going to be No Deal on the 12th.
