"The government recognises, parliamentarians, businesses, people across the country, people in Europe recognise as well that it is in everyone's interest to have at a minimum a transition period to the new relationship," Mr Carney said in an interview with ITV.

That would fit with the Irish Government position, reiterated last night by Foreign Minister Simon Coveney at a dinner for the finance sector in Dublin.

not quite

delusional: characterized by or holding idiosyncratic beliefs or impressions that are contradicted by reality or rational argument, typically as a symptom of mental disorder.

denial: failure to acknowledge an unacceptable truth or emotion or to admit it into consciousness, used as a defense mechanism.

Delusion is being out of touch with reality, denial is refusing to accept reality.

I awoke this morning to an SMS from my daughter requesting explanation of the critique she received from her English instructor. The instructor's marginal comments (marginalia) identified the following errors in her exposition on the topic of socialization, dramatized by the novel The Bluest Eye: "reductive," not "centrifugal", "expand". The word limit for the assignment, including subject matter citations, was set at 800.
