Imagine a general election.
Imagine Corbyn and Labour are largest party but with no overall majority.
Imagine a “confidence and supply” £1 billion deal with another party so as to give the Labour party an overall majority on key votes.
Imagine Corbyn then brings forward a “Austerity (Withdrawal) Bill” providing ministers with widest statutory powers to make, amend, or repeal laws.
Imagine the minority Labour government rigging the committee system so that they have majorities, outside scope of the “confidence and supply” deal.
Imagine the minority Labour government getting rid of Queen’s Speech for two years, so that there was no chance it could lose such a particular vote.
Imagine the minority Labour government legislating that *any* deal it does with EU can be implemented as law by ministerial discretion.
And now imagine what the Tories would say to any of that.
