It's dead.The draft withdrawal treaty was the best Britain could get. As it has been clearly rejected, extending Art. 50 deadline just for the sake of extending it, almost three years after the referendum, would lead to nowhere.
Britain has to surrender one or several of its red lines for the negotiation to restart on new ground if it wishes an extension, otherwise it is not worth the going.
Parliament voted against May/EU odd deal.
Parliament has also voted against a no deal Brexit.
Therefore it must be scrapped now. It can't possibly happen. It would be a constitutional catastrophe. Far better to have a few days riots, consisting of jobless people who don't like foreigners, then it is to crash out now sans-any kind of deal.
It's a gonner....it's just that May and her cronies won't wish to accept it.
