Boris Johnson was defeated in Parliament on Saturday. But an analysis of that vote, and the comments its members made in the run-up, suggests the prime minister still has a chance of getting his Brexit deal done.

Ministers of Parliament voted by 322 to 306 to force Johnson to seek an extension — an insurance policy against a “no-deal” Brexit if there is still no agreement by Oct. 31. It deprived Johnson of the chance to test whether there is support for his deal before pushing the full legislation through Parliament.
