My suspicion is that not a whole lot will happen - despite much Sturm und Drang - until after the EP elections which I expect to be a disaster for the Tories.
In the absence of other major developments, the EP elections will also become a proxy for a second referendum and the outcome, depending on the turn-out, could determine whether Brexit will ever happen.
The Tories will go absolutely mad, desperate to get rid of Theresa May by any means available, and yet I expect May to hang in there until after the EP elections at least unless her deal is passed by the House of Commons beforehand.
More hard Brexiteers will probably be prepared to support her deal now, worried that otherwise Brexit will never happen at all. But she could also lose votes from Tory Moderates and Remainers who favour a second public vote. So, again, I doubt her deal will pass, and the EP elections could change the whole ball game.
