This goes two ways, I think. If it’s a narrowish loss (say < 80) she will claim parliament can be convinced and that she’s going to ask for an A50 extension.

If it’s a massive loss, she might try to still brazen that out but would surely lose a no-conf at that point.

Or she’ll propose a referendum on whether N Ireland should be given to Ireland and solve the border that way

from https://www.politico.eu/article/theresa-may-sets-course-for-brexit-disaster-no-deal-withdrawal-treaty/

The minister from a major power said they were shocked to hear from a U.K. counterpart that London is apparently intent on dragging things out until March 21. At that point, May would bring a menu of three or four ideas for changing the backstop from which EU leaders would be invited to choose. If they reject all of them, she would blame EU intransigence for the ensuing chaos.

That's leadership!

It's astonishing to me that Brexit is still being played in the UK as domestic politics, a month+ away. My (French) research team had a meeting today with national research administrators showing us how no-deal Brexit will cut off all(-ish?) European research funds to UK universities immediately, and even if a deal is struck, the UK can only participate for another year in ERC funding. Surely the UK will make up for that loss of research funding...surely...sureLOLy...

Also they probably know that if you quit a party because of a man approaching his 70s at a particularly febrile and unstable period in history without a very good reason then you're an idiot. Also the right wing Labour MPs who stayed in and didn't join the SNP eventually won.
