Passing the exploding blame parcel
Who will blink first in the UK/EU game of blame-avoidance? The Conservative Government or the EU?
The Johnson/Cummings Government maintains its artful bluster. But their bluff has been called. Their empty promises exposed.
I doubt the EU will grant Johnson the prize he craves – freedom to blame everyone but himself. So, the EU is drawing them in. Giving Johnson the chance to compromise to the point where he upsets the hard-right.
This isn’t negotiation. This is quietly passing the exploding blame parcel…
