Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Presumably the "government of national unity" would hold office only long enough to request a further A.50 extension, hold a referendum where no deal and remain are the options, and then, perhaps, hold a general election. Alternatively it could hold office just long enough to request a further a.50 extension on the promise of organising a referendum and then hold a general election to elect a government to carry it out.

In practice, the later option would mean "holding office" for only a few weeks, and the A.50 extension request would be the only act of significance it would carry out.

I can't see Corbyn or his supporters agreeing to anyone but him holding the office of PM, however temporarily, and I can't see many dissident Remainer Tories voting for him.
