Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

That sounds like a reasonable assumption.

So, assuming her target is to get her deal through, I would guess that she will try to keep it alive, and put it against Remain when talking to Brexiteers, and put it against No deal Brexit when talking to Remainers.

So if she calls a referendum, she would want to put it against the less popular of these two (more popular) options. Which right now is No deal. It can be motivated by the question of Brexit already being settled, now is just time to decide how, etc etc.

And then people get angry, Remainers stays home, and quite possibly No deal wins. Brexit referendum all over again.
