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.

Brexit Bullshit Buster - the follow-up questions interviewers should be asking the chancers who spout WTO, Article 24, etc.
