    I don't think the "why" matters much any more. Even if the UK were to revoke article 50 it's never going to recover the status it had within Europe.

    Wouldn't it kind-of make sense to choose a conservative (but not rabidly pro-brexit) MP to head-up a post vote-of-confidence government? That way the conservative MPs wouldn't be voting to bring down...

    I'm sure they'll only be wanting half their salaries, being as how they're only going do be doing half their jobs.

    I don't think so; other than the madey-uppey "conservatism factors" OSTC implements standard Buhlmann + GF.
