Another of these:

UK to EU: So, we have voted to leave
EU to OK: That's a shame, OK what are your proposals?

We don't have any, we're leaving.
- Yes, but what about the Good Friday Agreement and the Northern Irish border?

Eh?
- It's an international treaty you signed, remember? Look, tell you what, why doesn't NI stay in the Customs Union, job done.

NEVER! You're not splitting the UK up.
- OK what do you propose?

Why are you being intransigent?
- What? OK look, we need to sort this and you haven't proposed anything, what about the whole of the UK staying in the Customs Union?

NEVER!
- FFS what then? This is your mess, tell us what you actually want.

Why are you being intransigent?
- Will you please just tell us what you want.

OK if you're going to be like that, we want a backstop added to the Withdrawal Agreement.
- Finally, yes OK, that's fine. But remember this is your idea. Shall we sign the Withdrawal Agreement off? Once we've done that we cannot reopen it in the time left.

Yes, sign it off.
- Done.

Ummm, we couldn't get it through parliament so we need to reopen the withdrawal agreement and change the backstop.
- We said we wouldn't do that, but OK we might be able to do something. We're listening, what do you want to change it to?

Alternative arrangements.
- What?

Alternative arrangements.
- What the actual f**k is that?

Don't know, just something different.
- Look, the backstop was your idea. We reluctantly agreed. Now you don't want it anymore and instead want it changed to something that doesn't exist?

Why are you being so intransigent?
- It literally does not exist, what don't you understand about that?

Stop bullying us. How about having a backstop that isn't a backstop?
- Oh f**k the f**k off you absolute idiots!

Have the UK played their first good hand with the tariffs? Sean Whelan has a good piece on RTE detailing that it is designed to apply maximum pressure on Irish gov, in that they will get it on the home front (farmers) and other EU countries worried for their industry might also ask us to consider climbing down on the backstop.

The Brits want to weaken the backstop by making the 6 Cos different to Great Britain ::)
You couldn't make it up.

I'd have no doubt that the ERG will be very keen to give the Irish a bloody nose since the 6 counties are the major impediment to the form of Brexit that they want yet can't deliver due to the backstop.

There'll be one last go at the withdrawal agreement, MV3. It *could* still carry.

Never have I seen such a shambles. Even the last days of the Cowen FF/Green Government is now seen as a period of enlightenment compared to these UK eejits.

What topped it all off for me today was that gom Mark Francois.

Getting ratty with a Sky News reporter he bellows "I was in the army"

The bollox was in the Territorial  Army - basically the UK version of the f**king FCA.

Who votes for these pricks?

And then, to drop my  jaw further, I tuned into Nolan on BBC1 Norn Iron..........who was the gobshite with the red hat on the panel? He looked deranged.

What is likely to happen next - an extension or referendum?

There are 3 options.
1. Mays deal is presented again and passes this time because erg and dup get scared that brexit wont happen. A short extension is agreed to pass the legislation.
2. Mays deal is not passed and a long extension of 2 years is agreed with eu. In that time there would be a referendum or a general election.
3. The eu fail to agree any kind of extension because some of the right sing leaders veto it. In this case we fall into no deal by accident.
