Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Boris HAD a majority of 6, including the DUP. But then he effectively expelled twenty some Conservative rebels. So he is at least 14 votes short of a majority unless he gets help from other parties. Some of the Rebels may agree to a compromise choice, one thought to be impartial, if such a person exists, but if the nominee is a hardline Brexiteer I have my doubts. Perhaps those closer to the situation can clarify.
