No, it's impossible. The figures don't add up for him.

WhatToDoAboutThis2017 · 09/06/2017 18:18

Thankfully, no.

Stolengoat · 11/06/2017 22:47

Never could, never will.

dotdotdotmustdash · 11/06/2017 22:49

I hope so, and if there is to be another election it's a distinct possibility thankfully. Having another Conservative government for the next 5 years is a nightmare scenario.

OliviaPopeRules · 11/06/2017 22:52

No not enough MP's unless the DUP would support them and although there might be a time the DUP would support labour (they really just want more money for NI and softer brexit) they would never do it with Corbyn in charge.
Depressingly I think there might be another election in the next year!

I'm starting to think that he doesn't actually understand how politics works!

ethanrayne · 11/06/2017 22:57

Jesus wept I hope not, I don't know what is more alarming right now - smirking Tory grandees like osbourne and heseltine gracing the airwaves or left hand wringers like Owen returning to the fold - my only hope is the Scottish Tory leader and emigration

ethanrayne · 11/06/2017 22:58

What alarms me even more is people on here saying it couldn't happen - it almost did Shock

FatGirlWithChocolate · 11/06/2017 22:59

Only in Jeremy's head.

Smellbellina · 11/06/2017 23:02

Hopefully not, let the Conservatives take the poisoned chalice for now.
Good things come to those that wait!

No, not without another election.
His talk of offering his own Queen's speech and becoming PM is so that we - the electorate - sit up and take notice. If we like what he's offering (even though he can't deliver it) more than what May offers then it bolsters Labour in the polls and makes us more likely to want a new election and to vote Labour when one is called.
That's my take, anyway. It's a smart move - one thing we've learned about him during the campaign is that he's really good at thinking on his feet. (Unlike May!)

If there is another election, quite possibly.

Interesting Survation poll yesterday:-

Westminster voting intention:
LAB: 45% (+5)
CON: 39% (-3)
LDEM: 7% (-)
UKIP: 3% (+1)
(via @Survation / 10 Jun)
Chgs. w/ GE2017

olivia why would the dup have to support him? There are other parties that could support him instead (sure, they all said they wouldn't do a coalition, but I'm not so convinced that when push came to shove, that would really be the case.)

Somerville · 11/06/2017 23:06

seoul
Because he could get a majority over the Tories without support from every other party (that takes their seats). And that's isn't going to happen.

Somerville · 11/06/2017 23:07

That should be couldn't

OliviaPopeRules · 11/06/2017 23:12

Seoul because that is the only way he would have the numbers needed in terms of votes to get anything passed.

seoulsurvivor · 11/06/2017 23:35

Oh you mean a coalition with more than one party?

Got it.

I don't think it will happen. They'll need another election.

Bluedabbadee · 11/06/2017 23:37

Well I placed a bet on JC becoming the next prime minister just over a week ago and it hasn't settled yet. The bet is still open so I'm going with yes, there is a chance. Very small chance, looking unlikely, but not impossible
