We will not accept any form of regulatory divergence which separates Northern Ireland economically or politically from the rest of the United Kingdom. pic.twitter.com/uCBVdfVQTJ

There never was a deal, the whole thing was a Tory fantasy they grimly pushed from Day 1. Even at the 2010 Tory conference they were deluded over it, vehemently insisting “Europe” and Britain could “find a way”.
They never ever could with this mob the EU, it was never ever about that.
But last evening the way even Davis was quite happy to sell out our allies for this manic obsession was a sight to behold. It wasn’t the mania to “deal” in itself, though that was bad, it was the willingness to instantly sell others out. Any potential Tory allies will have seen that and made a mental note.
