I don't think that would last long, the most likely outcome would be another election in the autumn. Tony Benn as P.M as well, yikes. Love the guy but don't think he would have been the best choice for PM

On the note of this particular election, I had recently been reading about a Conservative MP from Glasgow from around this period named Teddy Taylor, who was on record as the ONLY sitting Tory MP to lose his seat in Thatcher's first electoral victory as Conservative leader in 1979. He seemed like the controversial powderkeg politician from what I was reading. Since you're from the general area, are you at all familiar with him?

Ah, good old Teddy Taylor. If i'm correct he once publicly advocated for Nelson Mandela to be shot. He died in September, which I heard through my local Conservatives (somehow, even though i'm not a member). Seemed to be a decent guy, he was one of the Maastricht Rebels as well.
