Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But if this all goes pearshaped, the UK will have "de facto" left the EU even if no "de jure" deal has been agreed - throwing the whole process into a legal mess and discrediting the EU - which is, above all, predicated on a legal order. The Brexiteers would love that - throwing some sand in the EU's eyes.

if this all goes pearshaped, then it will be hard brexit on May 23, and it will be the UK's fault. I can't see why this would reflect badly on the EU.

<cling> The penny drops... I recently decided that I would be visiting Glasgow in the last week of May, to see my daughter's graduation exhibition. I'd better make sure to take cancellation insurance on the tickets.

(Oddly enough my first visit to Glasgow was in the weeks preceding the referendum... Full circle. Subliminal pull of ancestral ties.)
