    Not necessarily.

    If the deal goes through and Brexit is done and dusted the Leave voters will be drawn to Boris as the hero of the day, while the remain voters will be largely resigned with their faith and vote more or less along the pre-referendum party lines. Resulting in sizeable advantage for the Tories.

    If the deal is voted down and there is A50 extension followed by GE, Boris will have to campaign for his deal, losing leave voters to TBP and Labour's softer Brexit (whatever that means) and losing all but the most hard core Tory remain voters. Leaving him lack of majority in terms of votes, how much the impact in terms of seats will be is hard to quantify.

    What Labour is getting from that is slim chance of lead role in a perverse coalition with SNP and/or Lib-Dem. They have zero chance of parliamentary majority any time soon.

    If the deal goes through, a GE would no longer be about Brexit, making TBP largely irrelevant, and I would expect the Tories to win a decent overall majority.

    They'll rebrand as The Continuity Brexit Party, fighting against Johnson's Surrender Deal for a Clean Brexit.

    It's not the deal has changed so much rather than it is the deal is now being proposed by a man. Never send a woman to do a mans job.

    And people say the Tories are losing their conservative touch.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Also, a turd improves merely with the passage of time. Doesn't smell so bad etc.

    It may seem like something new but it's really just the same turd but older.
