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

Whatever the difficulties in forming a new government for the interim period between no-confidence and new election results, if Boris is disavowed by Parliament, he will cease to be PM and will have no executive powers. His wishes from then on will be immaterial from a constitutional point of view.

In that situation, a caretaker government request for an extension until things were cleared up would be, if not certain, highly likely.

Having said that, I doubt he'll lose a no-confidence vote. Corbyn might want to try one as soon as Parliament reconvenes, but he'll probably refrain if there isn't much hope of winning.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
Won't be nothing
Nothing you can measure anymore
