She's the sacrificial lamb tasked w/ scaring parliament into either accepting a BRINO or relinquishing the gov of blame for a reversal of brexit (via the Cooper amendment).
They won't allow no-deal. It'd split the Tories & unlock socialism. 1/
May had to promise to quit just to win a VoC. Tory party members r overwhelmingly leavers but Tory MPs r majority remain. They'll stop at nothing to steal the vote. 2/
JCs soft brexit CU plan is roughly equivalent to the EEA. Are Norway or Switzerland floundering? The remain obsessed establishment overplayed its hand. Their focus is to prevent a JC gov. 3/
But JC is just 1 man in opposition. He could not have simple stated his preference & seen it materialise. 4/
The splits are not for fear of no deal. ND can't happen by accident as MPs would have to choose to oppose a VoNC if Cooper defeated.
Splits are to prevent #JC4PM2019. 8/
1) They were out of time to undermine JC from within.
2) They know a GE is very close as a VoNC would hold immense power if it were the last option to avoid no deal.
This is why it seems crucial Cooper is defeated. 9/
If TM solely responsible for PV she is finished. JC must avoid advocating it. They want to tar him as the one who ignores democracy. 11/
In all of this mess, they'll be able to prevent a best case scenario, but if JC stays on target, he could be the one to emerge from the ashes. 13/
