Quote of the day 15th December 2018
"Only a single obstacle prevents May from winning the backing of her Party for her deal. Most of the hostility to it would collapse were there a uniteral exit mechanism." (to the backstop)
"Brexit isn’t a still photo, but a moving film – or should be. Where Britain will be on day one isn’t where we will be in year ten. The backstop freezes that film and prevents it from playing. Provide a sure means of escape from it, and the film begins to roll. And May’s deal thus becomes acceptable."
(Paul Goodman, selective extracts from a Conservative Home article called "It almost works.")
