“Transition extension or embracing the backstop — only exist to further postpone the inevitable. The UK will eventually need to embrace the consequences of its decisions; if it wants a Canada-style trade agreement then Northern Ireland will require its own distinct relationship with the EU.” (Sam Lowe of the Centre for European Reform, in The Times).
