So a few things happened since a couple weeks ago:
- The British central bank showed that they would be more capable than they were in the financial crisis to avert crisis
- All pro-Brexit politicians somehow exited stage left
- The early EU pressure that a decision be made right away then pulled back to waiting until after home EU elections
- Theresa May said that the article would not be executed unless Scotland voted yes (which of course, Scotland voted against Brexit initially).

Now, are people appropriately accounting for the risk this actually happens? Probably not. But all signs are pointing to a lack of conviction after the vote to pull this off. Especially with the realization that the Northern Ireland peace accords would be screwed with Brexit, or there would just be one open border that basically undermines cloing borders anyway.

After the current PM Theresa May had signaled a few months back that she was looking to do a "hard" Brexit as soon as next spring with her directing the whole thing, the UK high court has ruled that Parliament must approve a Brexit measure.
