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

It is ironic that the two things most feared in all this are two temporary arrangements that will be over-ridden as soon as suitable permanent agreements can be reached, which everybody says can and must and will be reached.

  • The backstop is a backstop in case other arrangements about Ireland can't be agreed, but everybody agrees that they can and must and will be reached. Thus the backstop should not be any problem. It's temporary.

  • Corbyn as PM is a holding measure until other arrangements can be made, and everybody agrees that they can and must and will be made. Thus Corbyn being PM should not be any problem. It's temporary.

But because of those two temporary considerations, the entire British political system is in chaos.
