    Boris, McVey, Gove, Leadsom - whomever is elected PM will be under enormous pressure to call a GE to ratify thier appointment.

Did Gordon Brown do that? I can't quite remember (and too lazy to look it up), but I think he just chugged along until the regular election date.

    Labour, Lib Dem, Greens will amlost certainly shutdown parliament. A minority government with severe internal dysfunction cannot hope to carry on as a stable government. The government won't be able to function.

The government with the DUP has a majority. I'm hopeful that the unsettling of the two big parties at the European elections serves as a wake up call that the Conservatives need to get behind leaving the EU or face getting the sack at the next General Election.
Seeing through the result of the Referendum will also allow Corbyn to get off the fence and start pushing his non-EU related agendas.

    A No Deal would still need a majority mandate. It's important for our leaders to show they are leaving the EU, not the EU kicking us out. Bercow is willing to ensure that parliament is heard over the executive, he will almost certainly allow the House to find a way to have thier voice heard.

I've heard different things about this. According to Jacob Rees-Mogg and Ian Duncan Smith, it's already in law that we can leave on 31st October, but others seem to disagree.

    But not getiing anything passed through the House, with Corbyn taunting the Tories over an election, the new Tory leader will need to either go for an election or face looking cowardly in thier early days as a PM.

Possibly. I don't think Corbyn really wants a General Election, himself, as both the big two parties have tanked in the opinion polls.

Who can say though? It'll be an interesting few months seeing how it does pan out.
