Agree with all of that. I think the Grieve amendment (that MPs can have a vote on what Plan B should be if May's deal is voted down) coupled with the likely ruling from the ECJ that Article 50 can be withdrawn unilaterally by the UK gets rid of:

(a) likelihood of no-deal (because MPs won't vote for it) and
(b) excuses that we have to leave because the EU won't "let us" change our mind now

An MP described the Advocate General's view on Art.50 being like an Exit light coming on in the tunnel we've been stuck in.

It's certainly a couple of massive dents in the likelihood of Brexit happening at all, not sure I'd go quite as far as to say it's the end of Brexit yet.

The Starmer motion that the Govt are in contempt of Parliament being passed also suggests a government that has no power in reality. I think a GE is maybe a step closer after today, although I still doubt Labour would win a majority at present, their vacillating over which position to take on Brexit will have put a lot of people off.
