Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I'm going to have to write something about the Fallacy of Being Very Serious, aren't I?

t is becoming increasingly clear that even removing the backstop from the Withdrawal Agreement entirely wouldn't guarantee its passage through the House of Commons. Hardline Brexiteers actually seem to want no deal.

This has been obvious forever. It is a useful thing to throw up. The nutters want a no deal. They have not been serious. The UK has not negotiated seriously with the EU or anyone else, only within the Tory party. The question is whether the political system will let the nutters have their way.

The question is whether the political system will let the nutters have their way.

Well everything has been going their way and what was a far-out extreme position has become gradually more and more mainstream...

The nutters are now in charge of the nut farm.

The nutters were always in charge of the nut farm. The difference is that the nut farm has become the society.
