      She'd have to overturn the Fixed Term Parliament Act first.

      Surely she won't get the votes to do that - Labour aren't stupid enough to help repeal it?

        Just needs 2/3 MP's to vote in favour - Labour's best bet of getting rid of Corbyn might be to get trounced in a GE.

          According to a twitter row last night with Tom Watson and Jon Lansman, if McCluskey is elected again Unite will switch their funding to Momentum and not Labour!

                  Well said, but she hasn't, she has a mandate from the Conservative party, which 'voted'her in as leader after all the other candidates dropped out.

                        We , the electorate, voted in (unfortunately in my view) a Conservative government in 2015,. The leader of the Conservative party at that time was David Cameron, who duly, according to the custom and practice in this country, became Prime Minister. Theresa May did not.
                        What's hard to understand about that?

                          The electorate votes for a government, and with our party system, it is most likely to be Labour or Conservative.

                          We do not vote for an individual to be prime minister.

                          How many more times do I have to tell you, nag. Go and stand in the corner.

                            The electorate votes for a representative in parliament.

                            The Party with a majority of seats forms the government.

                            Its leader becomes prime minister.

                            Glad to have cleared this one up for you.

                              If we're going to be smartarses, the electorate votes for (in the last election) 650 representatives in Parliament.

                              The party with the most seats might not be able to form a majority in Parliament. Whilst it traditionally gets first shout at forming a government, it might not be able to, nor choose to do so.

                                It's all very well saying you're going to be a smart arse about it, but unless you actually can be, I'd leave it to those who seem most capable.

                                  I think most people would read the majority of seats as being the same as the most seats i.e. the greatest number. In a 2 party system, one would naturally have a majority, but we have numerous parties with seats. Having the majority of seats is not the same as having an overall majority in the House of Commons.

                                  But of course, you're always right, so yeah, whatever.

                                    Since we're talking about parliament here and in parliamentary terms a majority means more than half then I'm not sure why you're confused.

                                    So if most would read "a majority of seats" as "the majority of seats" in the first place, then, in the context of describing who forms a government, interpret that as "the most seats", then they're all as wrong headed as you are.

                                    Clearly.

                                      I'm neither wrong headed nor confused, as you well know. You're just arguing for the sake of it now. Playing with semantics might make you feel superior, but in the eyes of the majority, it makes you look tedious.

                                        It's not so much playing with semantics as refuting your claims that I've said something that I clearly haven't.

                                        You've then twice asserted that you know what everyone else thinks.

                      Yes, I would expect that some would agree. However it could be argued that she has one from the statements made to the electorate by the previous PM. Has the Country got time to waste on an election when one is not needed for a couple of years? However if the government begin to experience difficulty in getting necessary legislation through then it is customary to go to the Country. Although polls have been somewhat unreliable lately, if is difficult to imagine that Corbyn's Labour Party or Farron's muppets can possibly make a dent in the Conservative vote.

                        I think she will need to partly to shut Sturgeon up for a bit.

                        I'd imagine she would easily get a 50+ seat majority. Labour will de decimated to probably about 100 seats with Lib Dems coming back strongly.
