Jeffery said that although there was a "two-thirds likelihood" that Johnson would not get his deal through, much depends on how he works Labour MPs. I've always thought that Brexit is a project for the right, by the right, of the right.
Many lawmakers want to rule out the possibility that Britain could crash out of the bloc without a deal on the October 31 deadline - a prospect economists say would disrupt trade and plunge the economy into recession.
"We've got a real opportunity now to get Brexit delivered faithful to the referendum, move on as a government, and I think as a country, and lift the clouds of Brexit", he told the BBC. Johnson doesn't have a majority, so the support of former Tories such as Philip Hammond and David Gauke gives the move a good chance of passing. He assured that the agreement negotiated with the European Union provides the best way out of the Brexit crisis.
If he fails, Mr Johnson will face the humiliation of Brexit unravelling after repeatedly promising that he would get it done - "do or die" - by 31 October.
At this stage, Britain will leave the European Union on 31 October with or without a Brexit deal. He pledged to renegotiate the most contentious elements of a divorce text agreed by his predecessor Theresa May with Brussels a year ago, which MPs rejected three times.
Jeffery said: "What the DUP might be gambling on, or what Johnson may have up his sleeve is to say: 'I brought back a deal, but parliament has rejected it, so now we proceed with no deal, ' and he has got the moral authority to do so because he's tried the alternative".
He has lost DUP's support, the opposition Labour Party has rejected his plan as "worse than May's", and rebel Conservative MPs opposed to his plans might be unwilling to back him. Labour lawmakers worry that the Johnson deal's vision of a loose post-Brexit economic relationship with the European Union could endanger workplace and environmental protections that Britain gained as a member of the bloc.

Madrid were behind in this game with only five minutes gone but levelled late on when Ronaldo converted a penalty that he had won. Without having an obsession, they happen naturally.
Yet Johnson must navigate a legislative jungle that his opponents are trying to booby trap with amendments that could wreck his path to Brexit.
One expelled Conservative lawmaker, Oliver Letwin, has proposed that the decision on whether to back a deal be deferred until all the legislation needed to implement the terms of the deal has been passed through parliament.
The timing of any votes depends on which amendments are chosen by the Speaker of the Commons, John Bercow, but they are not expected before 14:30. If the amendment is approved by parliament, Johnson's deal would not then be put to a vote on Saturday.
That would be major setback that would leave Brexit, yet again, up in the air as thousands of protesters demanding another referendum mass outside the railings of the 800-year-old parliament.
An uphill battle has been made more arduous by Sir Oliver Letwin, the former Tory Cabinet minister who now sits as an independent, whose motion allowing for amendments to the Government's proposals was narrowly passed.
Even though Johnson believes this can be achieved by October 31, others think it would need a short "technical" delay.
If the deal is rejected, Johnson will be obliged under United Kingdom law to ask Brussels for another Brexit extension, and EU summit host Donald Tusk, president of the European Council, has said in that case he would consult EU leaders.
"In less than two weeks, on October 31, we would be out of the EU".
