Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Using Northern-Ireland to cherry pick the single market through the backdoor is one of the lows in this very low saga. The fundamental problem being that HMG can not make a very difficult choice. Single market in or out? Norway or Canada? Hot or cold? It's trying to square the circle which is impossible. 2000 years ago someone had the right words for the impending no-deal Brexit apocalypse:
I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So because thou art lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spew thee out of my mouth.

Revelation 3,16-17

Those knackers voted for Brexit - they should own it and accept the consequences instead of whining around. If it turns out brilliant: wonderful! If it doesn't then we need the British people to employ the stiff upper lip and walk, eyes open, into the darkness.

Schengen is toast!
