The idea that Boris Johnson is ‘Hard right’ is just as absurd as saying that Corbyn is ‘Hard Left’ : that said they appear be outside the Overton window just enough to upset many of the neoliberal technocrats who had been enjoying both parties stuffed to the rafters with non entities like Yvette Cooper, Chucka Umunna and George Osborne.

Such people have found a new way to temporarily stitch up the population and to try and do away with the Conservative and Labour Party being democratic.

And that is by way of ‘moderates’ (undemocratic, NeoLiberal , extremists) essentially voting for no confidence in Boris and then voting as a single block outside party framework to trigger another referendum (I don’t know why they bother with the pretence)

The breakdown of this national unity block may be something like this with someone like Keir Starmer as leader

100+ labour MPs
30+ Tory MPs
The Lib Dem’s, snp, plaid, Greens, various independents and CUKs.

Is it time for such a movement and would you cite for it?

If there was national unity, it should have a government.

But there isn't. I think one can justify a caretaker goverment to extend Brexit and bring about an election only. What is the government of national unity's position on Scottish independence, nuclear power, Trident?

The simple answer is no, coalitions are vastly inferior to majority govermments.

Thankfully we dont hace to seriously consider that prospect. A government of national unity would have to form and pass a confidence vote and there is no way as high as the remoaners are that Corbyn having finally brought down the evil Tories is going to meekly order his MP's to back a government led by somebody else.
