My own sense has been that the UK is not so much trying to secure a good "red, white and blue" Brexit deal, as trying to ensure the EU side is blamed for a failure of those negotiations to produce any sort of substantial Brexit deal. Theresa May's "No deal is better than a bad deal" is becoming not only a self-fulfilling prophecy, but actual UK policy. It is like a naughty child trying to blame their parents for all matter of wrongs to justify their running away rather than trying to sort out the issues in dispute.

Of course, it will all come out in the inquries to follow, their ability to blame the EU for the mess in which the UK finds itself will diminish rapidly. I doubt that the Mail or the Sun will care much as their ownerships are tax exiles and the workforce are chosen for their sneery disdain. But other papers will probably find it difficult to sustain their position, the Telegraph particularly.
I imagine 5 years past leaving, the mood in the country will be quite bloody.
