Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Perhaps the comparison is that Brexiteers claim not to want to leave without a deal, and their tactic is to call what they see as the EU's bluff on the Irish backstop.  Cummings is likely to suffer the same fate as Varuoufakis if it turns out the EU weren't bluffing after all.

If the Brexiteers really were confident in their own position, they would have no difficulty calling a second referendum on Remain vs. whatever Brexit they do want. If the public did end up voting for whatever Brexit they do want, they are protected from any negative consequences - they can claim to be delivering exactly what the country voted for.

The reason for all their anti-democratic tactics now is that they know they wouldn't win that referendum...
