Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
TWBJ normally winds up about Ulster as a convenient distraction from some short term problem giving him inconvenient headlines. So he winds up Frost and any lurking DUPes and froths about Ulster for 5 minutes till he's in a new News cycle.

But now, as always with a mis-managed Govt, the blows are coming from all sides. 5 minute distractions won't work, but if he thinks Ulster is going to break him from the cycle, I fear he has mis-read the situation. There are too many issues with the Protocol that lead back to TWBJ personally, these are not the drains he should be digging up.

And meanwhile none of the other problems are going away. He's just making his problems worse.

As political observers are wont to note, in politics weeks go by and nothing happens and sometimes weeks happen in a matter of hours. Boris is  facing a lot of weeks before xmas.

keep to the Fen Causeway
