Poor Theresa was ambushed by Tory rebels and Corbyniskis who were hell-bent to disagree with whatever she came back with. She did cut a sorry sight and the EU-27 thought they had us over a barrel.

Boris signing the Withdrawal Agreement [WA] eased the noose around our neck. There are some unsavoury things therein, no doubt, but it makes a good viewing now to see the EU-27 wooing us to keep talking in the hope of getting some deal. A deal would be nice, but not at any unfavourable condition/cost.
