Do we Remain, all's fair, accept the result and bugger off.

and vice versa, Leave vote confirmed beyond question?

This is why a second referendum would be an absolute disaster. It has be sorted out now.
You are making the assumption the result will be close. A slim risk, but one worth taking.

I think they just ended up wanting to defeat May's deal and hoped she would step down if she lost, with a more hardline Brexiter replacing her.

I suspect that the Withdrawal Agreement could end up a lot more representative of the country as a whole than the more narrow ERG take on Brexit.

If only Theresa May had done this at the start, she wouldn't have put herself, business and the country through lots of unnecessary stress.

Re: Brexit (New).

In her defence she’s came back with the best deal. The other options are no deal or some measure of BRINO.

So what is your definition of BRINO(Brexit in name only), that isn't in the withdrawal agreement?

The WA is part one of a two step process. The next part shaping the future relationship which could be BRINO but could not.

Commitments to the single market and the customs union are already binding the final outcome to be BRINO.

Thatís a risky strategy, if thatís what they were doing. MV3 (probably) comes next. Further indicative votes are hoped for on Monday but are not presently timetabled.

The WA is effectively BRINO, and that is the ONLY deal that she has come up with. So the current "deal" IS BRINO.

In it there's an awful lot of this sort of thing, "unless so authorised by the Union".

Then there is the bit about the backstop:-
Quote:
2(1). The provisions of this Protocol shall apply unless and until they are
superseded, in whole or in part, by a subsequent agreement.
And that involves the UK being forced to remain in a customs union. Why would the EU agree to anything, when they get so much by not agreeing to anything? Especially as the attempted coup by the Remain side hasn't finished yet. What idiot allowed the "unless and until" bit, when that is possibly the biggest factor in the WA not being agreed.

The thing that gets me is how you can have a protocol that you cannot ever unilaterally terminate in a temporary agreement! The backstop should end when the withdrawal agreement ends unless there is a separate agreement to the contrary.

Only the EU could come up with something so perverse. I'm not even so sure it could be enforced once the withdrawal agreement expires- once ended, where is the legal authority for the backstop?

A backstop can't be temporary or it wouldn't be a backstop.

Here you go. A Hard Brexiter is one who supports a Hard Brexit - FullFact definition:

Acquis communautaire isnít just fancy French for the sake of it. It is one of the key principles of the European Union and its existence is the reason for one of the main principled objections to UK membership. The Acquis is the body of EU law, but it is also the principle that once an area of national competence has become part of the body of EU law, it remains there permanently, and EU membership mandates full compliance with it.

As a third party, the UK can form treaties with the EU (or any other state, or supra-national institution) that allow cooperation on issues where it is in the mutual interest of the UK and whoever else. That means we may operate in line with the Acquis in some things, but crucially because we are not members of the EU we are not bound by all of it.
Dude, I know what the words mean. It is just no one in the country is using them ...
