So if May wants to avoid losing both Brexit deal and her job, it may be that she needs to stop being quite so coy about the path or paths she may take, if (when?) she loses in 10 days.
Pressed over whether she is drawing up a Plan B in case of defeat in the Commons, Mrs May said: "The focus of myself and the Government is on the vote taking place on December 11".
Mrs May has said no, Labour says yes but only if it does not get a general election.
Gyimah said "what has happened with Galileo is a foretaste of the brutal negotiations we will go through that will weaken our national interest, make us poorer, less secure". "I've negotiated what I believe truly to be a good deal for the United Kingdom".
"The day after the prime minister's stage-managed visit to Scotland, during which she failed to engage with any politicians or individuals who oppose her proposals, this unique and positive cooperation between four of the five parties at Holyrood indicates Scotland's strength of feeling on Brexit and the prime minister's untenable position, as well as illustrating the isolation of the (Conservatives) on this matter", they said in a joint statement.

"If they can not look their constituents in the eye and say it is, they must vote this deal down and then hand the decision back to the people".

Instead, what I see from Labor is an attempt to frustrate what the government is doing to deliver Brexit for the British people. "That is actually a betrayal of the British people".
"This is an important point in our history", she said. "It says we will be able to do those trade deals, and we will be able to do them with the United States and others".
Moreover, the poll found the electorate to believe that even a no-deal scenario would be better than the proposed deal, with 32 percent describing a hard Brexit as the best possible scenario.
But hinting at potential further resignations from Mrs May's top team over Brexit, he added: "Members of the Cabinet who don't vote for the deal won't be members of the Cabinet".
The decision to back a People's Vote was taken at a meeting of council leaders in Edinburgh today.
She added: "The view I have had from farmers, employers and sector organisations and others in my trips around the country is that they recognise the importance of this deal and they support this deal".
