    • Das kann man weder so, noch so beim hiesigen Wahlsystem voraussagen.Aber eine Labour-Lib Dems Koalition ist wahrscheinlicher, Weil Tories und Brexit Party sich gegenseitig behintern!
    • Oder er ruft nach dem Halloween Hard Brexit Neuwahlen aus und gewinnt sie. Das wäre wohl der worst worst case.

    • Armes England. Man möchte Trauer tragen. Even worse case Scenario: er rennt Ende Oktober gegen die Parlamentswand und nach einer vorzeitigen Wahl muss er mit Farage koalieren. Nicht ausgeschlossen und mir fast wahrscheinlicher als die Hoffnung Corbyn würde mit Grünen und LibDems zusammen eine Regierung bilden können, von wollen ganz abgesehen. 
    • Wer weiss, ob er's wirklich wird - vielleicht nehmen sie ja doch Jeremy Hunt. Ein gutes Ergebnis sehe ich leider bei keinem von beiden...
