As the Gov prepares for indicative votes on alternative options the Brexiteer mood darkens significantly. Is this just the latest plan to coax them to back her deal or is this reality, a Remain Parliament taking back control?

No doubt some Brexiteers think the former but I sense this is for real, Brexit is sliding down the drain and the best option is to hold noses, back her deal and then get rid of her by withdrawing all support, she'd have to go. We saw last night how the EU took control of Brexit, they stopped a No Deal Brexit, effectively we got owned.

The numbers look grim but could improve if she quit after a win, it could get it over the line still but she is now the blockage, as Fraser Nelson puts it;

If Mrs Mays deal is voted down again, Parliament could name its preferred form of Brexit. Then at the last minute Brussels would reveal the terms under which it will grant Britain an extension. They would be quickly approved by nervous MPs. It would be the EU that ends up taking back control.

There is an alternative ending to this story. That Brexiteers vote through her (bad) deal, recognising it as the best platform from which to fight for something better. This would be the end: of these talks, at least. A new phase would begin, aimed at securing a trade deal before the general election so no time to waste. Mrs May then says these new talks need a new leader, so she would go gracefully, thanked for her extraordinary strength, stamina and sense of public duty. She would have completed phase one and kept her party together. Just.
