The so-called No-Deal is The Deal. It is not a real No-Deal. It is a No-Deal Agreement. It all hinges around the NI/Irish Protocol. It is not Brexit.
The so-called No-Deal scenario seems like a sophisicated con that will merit a Hollywood movie some day. It appears to be a brilliantly contrived immaculate deception: a collusion between masterminds who currently control the EU and their fellow masterminds who currently control the British Establishment.
There was always going to be a last-minute fudge in the EU/ Brexit negotiations: an elaborate attempt to bluff us British people who voted for Brexit. Everyone expected it: it was inevitable.
The amazing thing is that in spite of this common awareness they seem to be pulling it off: at the very last-minute. Well, so far anyway. It really is quite ingenious.
