May resigns as Conservative leader on Friday 7th June
Backing a no deal is probably necessary to become leader of the Tories, whereas brexiteer Corbyn could probably win a general election if he backs remain and Farage splits the Tory vote.We’re so fucked if someone who thinks «no deal no problem» is selected.
The problem for this person is that "no deal" has been rejected in the house. Only ~25-30% of the house would vote for it.

Likely new PM could find no-deal option thwarted by senior Tories such as Philip Hammond
This. If the Greek can vote to leave and then have it scrapped, so can the Brits.It is quite good to see that only a few people, on either side, really wants a no-deal.
I'm still rooting for the complete overthrowing of Brexit, a second referendum, a "stay" win and the closing of this idiotic move.
