Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It is not hard to imagine a Perfect storm where Boris takes the UK out with no deal just as:
  1. The world economy slows dramatically
  2. The UK economy goes into recession
  3. Some global event - e.g. Iran, as you suggest - requires maximum "western solidarity" to deliver a coherent response, a response which is no longer forthcoming from the EU because they are at "war" with Trump/Boris
  4. Trump's trade wars queer the pitch for any new FTA negotiations and perhaps lead to a collapse of the WTO system of free trade so beloved by Brexiteers
  5. Trumps difficulties with impeachment or re-election means he forgets completely about his dearest ally, the UK, just as they need his support most.
  6. Scotland votes to secede from the UK, and N.I. collapses into ungovernability
  7. UK government revenues collapse as hundreds of millions in assets are moved overseas...

Of course it will all be Corby's fault even though he is in opposition.
