It's cultural conservatism; create a confected spat which allows you to apper to defend some hallowed cultural institution, the last night of the proms, the integrity of the Ulster connection and then get kudos when you "win".
I still believe that Boris Scummings has no interest in a deal of any sort with the EU. I base this on the principle of follow the money.
Who paid for brexit? High net worth individuals within the Finance industry, most of whom work in hedge funds.
How do these people profit? By shorting (betting against) doomed stocks and profiting from the resulting crash.
No deal brexit is the greatest short opportunity in history and there are a lot of hedge funders in Boris' close circle. No deal has always been the objective.
Once its done and the money is banked, I fully expect the senior leavers to decamp before the tabloid public realise the extent to which they were conned. Although they will no doubt waste a year blaming Corbyn and the EU.
