Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I have seen speculation that the EU may be preparing some last minute compromise to help May get her deal across the line but are reluctant to unveil anything until the last minute in case the Brexiteers pocket it and come back looking for more.

But what could that be? Perhaps a gesture towards Corbyn's ideas giving the UK "a consultative role" on future trade deals?

Perhaps an agreement the Backstop can lapse provided a majority in a N. Ireland referendum voted against continued membership of the Customs Union and Single Market?

Either way, Newton Emerson seems to think the DUP is preparing for a climb down. That will be a first!
