    I'm at the top left of that smoke tail area.

    EU offers short delay with strings. Ball now back in UK parliament’s court to agree the deal on offer or come up with a new plan.

    Well spotted, CP. I hope you are continuing in good health and happiness and your precious bodily fluids are remaining pure and flowing freely. My own health has suffered a setback over the winter but with warmer weather around the corner I hope to recover my essence to a resemblance of its former sufficiency.

    MP’s reject no-deal Brexit. At this point the vote has no legal force and legislation is needed if it is going to mean anything. This was another Government loss but they still have Article 50 and the only deal in town.

    Before MPs voted on the government motion, they backed an amendment tabled by Labour's Yvette Cooper rejecting a no-deal Brexit under any circumstances - by just four votes.
    This dramatic development led to the government ordering Conservative MPs to vote against its own motion, despite earlier promising them a free vote.
    The government motion, as amended, was passed by 321 votes to 278, a majority of 43, reinforcing the message that MPs do not want to leave without a deal.

    I hear that the B737 Max software fix was delayed by the Gov. shutdown!

    That was probably the best deal they were going to get. It seems impossible to leave the EU without a hard border either in Ireland or in the Irish Sea. There is a small chance now that Brexit will be abandoned. Although the politicians argue that the referendum result must be delivered, it is also true that the public were not adequately briefed about the issues at stake when they voted.
    Best deal they were going to get given May's self imposed red lines. With those in place there wasn't much that could be done, given the four freedoms.

    The silly thing is the backstop proposed in May's deal was something the UK actually negotiated to stop a border in the Irish Sea. The UK managed to wrestle it from the EU in negotiations, only to go back and have to renegotiate what they requested to be put in place.
