Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
The Irish government would have to be comprised of fools and idiots to let May & Co. get away with "postponing" the Irish Question until Phase 2.  

Right now.  As of 6 December 2017.  The only thing May seems able to get is a No-Deal Brexit.  Her Tory replacement would either be in the same situation or would welcome a No-Deal.  The chances of another election seem remote, to me.  But I do admit you'uns o'er there have a better grasp of the on-the-ground realities than I.

She believed in nothing; only her skepticism kept her from being an atheist. -- Jean-Paul Sartre

Well Helen does have the advantage of being able to talk to real Brits in their natural habitat. I have to make do with ex-pats and ne'er do wells who decided to inflict their talents on foreigners. And reading the Guardian, FT, and Independent obviously doesn't count as communing with the spirit of the nation. I can only read the Mail/Express/Sun etc. for a few minutes before feeling that my hands are dirty. The BBC seems a shadow of its former self and an organ of the Tory establishment. It managed to completely ignore Davis' bare faced lies to Parliament... public accountability indeed.
