    Default Another tory Defection; No working majority

    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    So no Queen's speech. No finance bill.
    Can JC go see the Queen now and ask to form a government?

    Nope, the "biggest party" forms the government, not always the majority, unless JC can manage a vote of no confidence we are stuck with BoJo

    Pass a vote of no confidence would be easy. Hard would be to agree a majority on a new leadership….

    If you’re going to get kicked out anyway, makes sense to jump ships. Got to feed the kids and run the holiday home in London, some-how.

    I don't get this.

    So this guy was voted in as a Tory by the people in his constituency.

    If he then can decide to play for another team should there not be a local election where he has to stand as a lib Dem and the Tories can field a different candidate?

    I mean surely if you planned it enough then you simply put plants everywhere to run as the local candidate for the popular party of the constituency and the switch sides when voted in?

    Well, it’s an extension of what Leave.eu, UKIP, and TBP supporters have done by infiltrating local Conservative associations and running deselection campaigns.

    You should ask Sarah Wollaston. She's a Tory that sponsored a Bill to outlaw that via mandatory recall. Oh wait...

    The vote is for the individual. One of the splendours of British Parliamentary democracy.
