what would happen if an independent won every seat that means every constituency fielded an independent candidate and everyone of them got a seat who would be prime minister? and how would they form a cabnate?

I think essentially a form of pseudo-party would have to be formed, with a PM and cabinet chosen from amongst the new MPs. If they couldn't come to an agreement on that, then it would probably force another general election.

The independents, as the above reply suggested, would probably find common goals and natural alliances amongst themselves. Whichever party ends up being the largest would most likely become the de facto government.

As Dez said, pseudo parties would be formed and then it would be business as usual. This is the reason that abolishing parties is a silly idea, you would just get a few factions of MPs with similar ideas who agree to support each other on various issues, so for instance there would be a pro trident faction, a unilateralist faction, and a multilateralists faction for votes on trident. It would be informally business as usual.

Well, not necessarily. The queen would make a decision and choose the PM.

But that ultimately co!es down to stability of the governance, which will ultimately be down to the factions behind them.

Almost certainly some would group together then form coalitions with other groups
