Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The script seems plausible all but for some factors other than Johnson's acting abilities. The deal won't be changed by the EU, if at all only in the softer direction. The majority in parliament is still not there for anything. Johnson uniting the Tories? A general election is as unpredictable as anything, especially if preceded by something like (near) no-deal chaos.

Personally, I welcome the chance for the prime Tory buffon brexiter to take charge. In all likelihood it will poison him too. Let him meet his political death. Or if a deal does get through, his premiership will be ground down by even more difficult negotiations and a steady decline in economic circumstances.

This should have happened at the very beginning. So there could be no excuses like "not enough will", "hidden remainer" and so on. Let the leavers eat Brexit.

Schengen is toast!
