Eh? Nobody is voted PM. He (or someone) will be elected the new Conservative Party Leader and therefore automatically become PM in the current situation. Parliamentary arithmetic could then certainly bring him down. There will be a new PM unless by some miracle May's deal passes and the DUP then bring it down.

There would be a bit of a constitutional problem if the Queen is required to appoint a PM when he obviously does not have a majority in the house.

If the ould Queen starts losing the plot & makes a wrong call on appointing a PM, it could provoke the type of "constitutional crisis" so beloved of the British.

As McGregor might say the Queen will do nuttin. As a ceremonial Head of State she does as directed by Government protocol. The Queen acting outside her ceremonial  constitutional role (for a country that famously has no written constitution) is unheard of in modern times & is a bit of a taboo subject.

Looks like today's the day this finally consumed Theresa, her resilience was impressive at least..if nothing else. Cant imagine the torys will vote for another who tries to save them for themselves. I'd say Gove or Raab are the most likely candidates. MPs wont let boris near it but well see. Another GE is on the cards this year

She promised her party that they could have their cake and eat it too, which could never happen and she’s paying the price.  She told them the UK will leave the CU but there will be no hard border, and DUP were assured there will be no Irish Sea border - if you leave the CU there has to be a border somewhere, simple.  She hadn’t the nerve to face down one side or the other and now they are all eating her.

I know but that was the public vote. This will be an internal vote in the Tory party. Would he command enough support?
