No Evidence That May's Brexit Deal Will Survive Commons Vote

In spite of this piece by Laura Kuenssberg, there is zero evidence that MP's will change their minds before the vote. They know the risks but have known them from the outset, hence the amendments by Yvette Cooper and Hilary Benn (Benn's amendment has yet to go through).
That said that does not mean there is no hope for a fresh deal in time, it looks like MP's might be able to make enough amendments to be practically an alternative. Failing that their next course of action is to delay Article 50 and put the options to a People's Vote. A general election is probable for 2019, but only around the summer at the earliest, and certainly only at the whim of the current government. But we live in fragile and unpredictable times
