Not quite. In their heart of hearts the majority of Parliament favour staying, but recognise that the referendum result didn't go that way. Moreover, a majority of Parliament opposes leaving without an agreement on both the legacy consequences of leaving and a clear future relationship.

But there is no majority for any particular form of agreement, above all, for the deal which the government has secured, which is opposed by diehards on both sides of the leave/remain debate. Which is why there are so many different ideas floated about how best to try to break the deadlock.
