I was just reading this article about Liz Truss’s seat in Norfolk, and how the constituents are slowly revoking their support.

It made me wonder what would happen in the (unlikely) scenario where the current prime minister called a general election and lost their seat.

Would there be a party leadership vote immediately after the general election? Or another general election?

Has this ever happened before?
