Long term no idea how this will end. I would only note that any scenario other than no-deal requires the timely agreement of both the House of Commons and the EU institutions. Beyond me how is that going to happen.

The DUP are keeping the conservatives on life support by not voting "no confidence" in the government although they are opposing much else. However they have said they will vote no confidence if May's deal is passed by the House of Commons.
The position if there is a Tory Party leadership challenge is even more fraught as the process of challenging, voting no confidence in, and replacing a leader is supposed to take 12 weeks. I doubt the EU Council would extend A.50 just to let a new Brexiteer Prime Misnister be elected...
