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

- The margin of loss is looking like 300-400. Is it possible to bounce back from such a defeat via a market-fright and token changes?

- British business may howl about being thrown out of the backstop. But who listens to them...? Not likely to make Tory pragmatists vote for it.

But anyway, if I was in charge (ruuuunnn...), that would be the kind of thing I'd push for. Hard Brexit for GB and a somewhat softer Brexit for NI. If things remain stable in NI, this could be an economic boon for NI. Because they'd be in the UK and with one foot in the CUSM, all kinds of businesses would want to move there. God knows they need it. GB on the other hand would suffer economically, politically. And maybe they need that too.

Schengen is toast!
