Thank you very much for your trenchant comments, especially: "The Prime Minister has to be able to command the confidence in the House of Commons. Only MPs can determine that."

I'm just relieved we were spared a third TV verbal scrap. Cambridge Dictionary: 'first among equals'

idiom UK a member of a group who is officially on the same level as the other members but who in fact has slightly more responsibility or power:

The prime minister is first among equals in the cabinet.

We do not have a presidential system in this country: even if BJ tried to trump that.

And why such a convoluted system of election by MPs? Why not one hustings for MPs and then one election by Single Transferable Vote?

My vote at a General Election is based on the party's manifesto.
