UK: In the event the Conservatives win a majority, PM Johnson has said he will
look to bring Withdrawal Agreement before parliament ahead of Christmas. What
would the timeline look like?
- 12 Dec: Election Day
- 13 Dec: Results come through early morning, into the day.
- 17 Dec: Reported day for parliament to return. Speaker is re-elected. Unlikely
to be a challenge to Sir Lindsay Hoyle so could just take and hour. Swearing in
of MPs begins. 
- 18 Dec: Swearing in of MPs continues. 
- 19 Dec: State opening of Parliament with reduced pomp and circumstance, and
slimmed-down Queen's speech.
- 20 Dec: Queen's speech debate and vote.
- 23-24 Dec: MPs debate Withdrawal Agreement. With a Conservative majority this
would be expected to pass swiftly.
