COUNTDOWN TO THE VOTE: SO WHAT COULD HAPPEN...
1 may cancels the vote and goes to brussels
embarrassing but less damaging than a commons monstering if mrs may postpones the vote and begs the eu to reopen talks, with a future vote on any new deal.
2 may has vote on tuesday and loses by less than 75
survivable if may immediately declares she is going to brussels to demand further concessions.
3 may has vote and loses heavily
observers expect this would trigger immediate demands for mrs may to resign.
4 commons amends vote to seize control of brexit
major headache for mrs may if tory rebels and labour chiefs demand a second referendum or a softer brexit.
5 vote of no confidence
Which means she must quit if she loses. or she could face an internal leadership challenge from within the tories.
6 she Wins brexit vote
it could happen. but it might take two or three attempts.
