Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

2 resignations so far this morning, a rather anonymous and lowly N Ireland "minister"/bag carrier.

But also ...pause... Dominic Raab.

This deal is unravelling before our eyes, it may not reach the Commons to be debated at this rate.

The Government could fall this week

Now Esther McVeigh has resigned from the Cabinet.

Man I love the smell of napalm in the morning

Braveman is number four.

My reasons are simple. Firstly, the proposed Northern Ireland Backstop is not Brexit. It is not what the British people--or my constituents--voted for in 2016. It prevents an unequivocal exit from a customs union with the EU. This robs the UK of the main competitive advantages from Brexit.

Emphasis mine. The 2016 Brexit referendum is a convenient Rorschach.

Oh good grief yes. Every time somebody stands up and claims that their personal brexit is "what the country voted for", I have to consciously restrain myself from picking up a brick and hurling it at the television
