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

Doesn't this go the other way too, with proposals for a caretaker government to call an election? The caretaker PM would need 2/3 majority or lose a no confidence vote, with no replacement. So there could be a no confidence vote against Boris, followed by Corbyn who requests a A50 extension and then tries to call an election only for it to fail, Corbyn losing a no confidence vote and Boris voted in?

Tory remainers and soft Brexiteers plus the remains of CHUK would be the swing voters in this scenario, wanting to avoid both a no deal Brexit and an election.

I think it only requires a majority of Parliament to confirm a new PM. Could be wrong.
