Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Onion is getting more creative with every passing year. I look forward to further instalments describing PM Boris threading this needle with subtlety and grace.

This is an Irish Department of External Affairs internal memo about the strategy it should pursue, not a description of Boris' finer qualities...

Finesse: to bring about or deal with (something) by using great delicacy and skill.

Inveigle: to persuade (someone) to do something by means of deception or flattery.

Disaggregate: separate (something) into its component parts. If you can't get a majority in the HOC for the whole deal, break it into separate component parts which can command (separate and different) majorities...

I choose my language carefully. I have the BEST words...

Can't work here, though.  On the one hand, no one is at the table, and yet on the other hand, no one's turn ever ends.
