The Withdrawal Agreement Bill/EU-UK Withdrawal Agreement Treaty has never been a negotiated settlement.

The Treaty was always EU's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier deal.

And hats off to the Michel Barnier, Veni, vidi, vici, I came, I saw, I conquered. The UK sent an inadequate, ill prepared amateurish team of blundering bureaucrats, whitehall mandarin mediocrity, and stale civil servants.

The resultant chaotic conclusion, fodder for future historians to muddle over.

Sorry the angst is far from over........

Negotiating Brexit: Preparing for talks on the UK’s future relationship with the EU

Wouldn't it be a delicious irony if the Tory lemmings and hardline Brexiters were to help defeat May's unpalatable Brexit fudge, thus bringing about the sudden end to her premiership and leaving the government rudderless to drift off back to the warm embrace of the EU. Fact is, a new Tory leader would not solve the parliamentary impasse, and neither would a general election, except to hand over the Brexit baby to a red-faced Corbyn who would then be put in the uncomfortable position of having to surreptitiously bin the baby. Many pols must have private misgivings about going back to the people lest a second referendum produce the nightmare scenario of a Brexit Groundhog Day. That leaves revocation of Article 50 as the safest and most expedient way for MPs to cover their *sses and get the Brexit monkey off Britannia's back. "Will of the people"? C'est la vie, and so it goes, old chap!
