The more I think about it, the more I think this is a credible scenario currently unfolding:
The ERG are perfectly happy with May's plan but by voting against it they get a compliant (ie Johnson) Prime Minister and a cabinet filled with PLU. Virtually the same plan then goes to Parliament and this time it passes - the media spin it to be a great victory for The Ledge, the EU caved in at the last minute just as we said they would, general election sees a thumping Tory majority with Rees Mogg clones taking the places of the 21 traitors. And the subsequent bonfire of red tape ushers in an era of low tax and low regulation in which multi-nationals and hedge fund managers can thrive.
We've got democracy! Who needs solidarity?
