I think the most likely outcome is that Boris will be the next PM, the biggest impediment is likely to be whether there are enough Tory MPs opposed to Boris to risk the wrath of the members by preventing him from being one of the two candidates that members will vote on. I think Boris will go for No Deal, not for ideological reasons, but because that is now the platform his has chosen and also as a possible gambit against the EU. I think when the issue is forced parliament will have to decide whether it wants to block No Deal, even at the cost of outright revoking Article 50.
