I wonder if the whip would be withdrawn on such a vote in parliament.

A Lib, Lab, SNP, non mental Tory coalition could kick this nonsense into the long grass.

Who cares anyway? Parliament's just going to jump through whatever legalistic hoops it's required to. It just earns a bit more money for lawyers, that's all.

I don't understand if the 7 v 4 figures are plucked out of the air, or some poor sod has had to analyse which way they think each judge will go, or it's strategic leaking to influence the judges or what.

That sort of analysis was all over social media at the time time of the hearing. Some poor sod has analysed past decisions, speeches and the like and made their best guess.
