Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In one sense Boris is completely correct, the chequers plan is completely stupid and unworkable. Being entirely fantastical, it is impossible to use it even as a starting point for any discussion.

the problem for Boris comes with his next statement: "Do not believe them when they say there is no other plan and no alternative" which, while entirely true, does not include any solution acceptable to the EU as well as Boris and the ultras.

Boris is a wrecker, a man given to grand gestures and spending other people's money as wastefully as possible (his tenure as Mayor wasted billions on his profile-boosting vanity projects). He talks now of glibly building a bridge across the Irish Sea as some sop to Ulster. As if that could solve anything.

Sadly, his destruction of the Tory party as an electoral force is proceeding too slowly to impede brexit.
