Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
To have a referendum the current agreement has to fail to pass parliament, May has to acknowledge her failure to get the current agreement past parliament, then there has to a parliamentary agreement to have a referendum, then the referendum has to be scheduled, there has to be time for "debate" (using the term loosely) and campaigning, and then the voting.  Plus time for everyone and their aardvark to make speeches, offer amendments, debate amendments, vote on amendments, posture, quiver with outrage in the Daily Mail, & etc. etc. etc.

In 130 days?  I submit it is highly unlikely.
