For some of them, the following sequence of events

is not going to "simply stop" it "all", because for them "no deal brexit", or any "brexit", is included in the "all" that they want to "stop".

The plan of the opponents to Brexit as I understand it is to call a VONC, install a mpuppet PM who will then ask the EU for an article 50 extension (the crucial bit) and then call a GE. A new Remain leaning government would then hold a new referendum. It depends on the EU agreeing to a suitable extension. In this event the 31 Oct deadline is dispensed with, is this not the proposed plan? I thought the LD’s wanted a new referendum?
