Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
if it is agreed at the 11th hour, then it will probably be something of a pyrrhic victory.

The increasing uncertainty and paralysis that has infected UK business and politics over the least 6 - 9 months is already a national catastrophe. The idea that merely pulling out of a nosedive just in time to avoid ploughing into the ground is some sort of victory should be regarded as frankly daft. The plane will still crash; Britain, as an economy, isn't going anywhere. There will be pain, blood and a galling lack of in-flight refreshments.

In 10 years, Mrs May will be on the telly exhorting us to eat cake when there's no bread.
