Britain had no choice but to delay Brexit by at least three months, as it voted to do today.
The question for parliamentarians on Thursday, then, was whether Britain should allow a "hard Brexit" on March 29 or whether it should take time to find a new consensus that gets Brexit accomplished.
Neither has Parliament taken control over Brexit from Theresa May.
The opinion poll data shows that when "Remain" voters are also factored in, a plurality of Britons supports trade with the EU on the effective customs union track Theresa May has established.
But as the new end-of-June Brexit deadline approaches, the prospect of a unity agreement between pro-Brexit parliamentarians of different Brexit-type stripes will grow.
