Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As I've explained elsewhere, Corbyn holds the official position of Leader of the Opposition. That makes him quite officially the first person to be consulted, and the first obvious candidate, to attempt to bring together a majority. No need for the quotes "" around right.

As for time, there are two weeks of recess ahead. Time enough for people who are getting media attention by saying they would never have anything to do with Corbyn to change their minds. He is the major contender, and he holds the major bloc of votes that can veto anyone else's attempt.

IF Boris is voted down.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
