I'm starting to think the backstop was only ever there to be a 'concession' that can be removed, leaving the 'deal' seem reasonable without it. It isn't, nobody should fall for this ruse, especially @BorisJohnson. With or without the backstop this WA is trash.

The country is being held to ransom by about two-hundred idiots who call themselves Conservative MPs, who refuse to cast out the leader that the rest of the country would like to throw off a cliff.
Update: What goes against the last-minute compromise idea, however, is the fact that the EU is saying that the backstop is not going to be renegotiated, and apparently all May is going to get anyway from the EU are ‘reassurances’, not changes. Don’t think ‘reassurances’ is going to cut it.
