My hypothesis (unsupported) is that the Tory leadership contest is showing them up for being so clueless in a very public fashion, they'll figure out how to fudge it so only one candidate is left in the last round and it never has to go to the membership (ie just like in 2016).
Because alternative is an entire month of the Remain and Leave wings of the party tearing strips off each other in public in support of their last candidate standing, with an incredible whiff of desperation to the fight. After all, whoever gets it will devastate half the party.
Plus the leadership contest process is getting astonishingly bad press (out of touch, backroom deals, undemocratic etc.) so they could do with short-circuiting it.
