Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's hard work out what's really going on. The Guardian is pushing the punch-up angle, but it's also been suggested it was a stage-managed stunt and/or an excuse for Leave to attack Johnson for back-sliding on Brexit by contemplating a deal.

It's been obvious for a while that Murdoch has the knives out for Johnson and wants to replace him with the even more vile Gove. So this may just be another development in that story.

The tell will be the shape of the EU deal - if there even is one. If there isn't, we can assume that Leave still reigns supreme. If it's a saner outcome, then it's possible Biden is leaning hard on Johnson to keep the GFA in place and Johnson really is being pulled away from his previous extremism.
