While there are cool and wise heads in Westminster, the fact is that Cameron called the referendum in the first place to buy some peace and quiet from his more fractious right wing. Rather than put them in their place, brexit has emboldened them and they now strut around knowing that all major policy flows through them. Yet, there are many in the Conservative party who fundamentally disagree with them.
Most of the time, the disagreements in the Tory party can be papered over, finessed for the greater good. Not now. It's too important because the future of the UK is at stake and there are no obvious paths to economic security. Yet the opposing wings are pulling in different directions.
Theresa May has her hands full dealing with the squabbling children under her feet, let alone worrying about mapping out the path for negotiating with the EU. Ireland is an "any other business" to be dealt with on another day when things aren't so hectic.
It's a mistake, but there's only so many hours in the day and Boris needs burping more often than you'd expect.
