Of all the things I've written on #Brexit, this is definitely the most quirky. 🏏

The 'night watchman' metaphor is to emphasise that the relevant parts of the #Protocol on NI/IRL need only kick in for any period when UK-EU conditions are sub-optimal.

It's an opinion piece primed for the #Ashes.

Co-authored with Bishop John McDowell, we argue the Protocol needs to be understood/designed as an interim arrangement that may or may not be called upon.

Allowing for this would avoid the mistake of risking all at this stage.

The purpose of the 'night watchman' in cricket is to avoid unnecessary losses and risks. Seems appropriate.

Somewhat unusually (for half an op ed), I dedicate this to my old English teacher, J.F.T.Gibbons from Newbury - a tremendous cricket fan & a sage & cherished friend.

Do you think #testchampionship should have had 90 points in altigether. 10 points for winning a series at home 20 poihts for winning a series abroad. 5 for draw
And since each team would be playing 6 test series. It would all fit(1/2)

I mean. points on winning a series would have given more liberty for team managements to bring in a new player for a couple.of games and test him or give him a chance. Now.. it would be a difficult call to bring in a new guy since every match matters for points. (2/3)
....it would be like taking a risk and i dont believe many team management would be willing to take that risk. What do u guys think on this(3/3)

What are your thoughts on the umpiring in #Ashes opener?

How many more blunders? Any guesses? #ENGvAUS
Aaaand blunder #8's here -- Lyon to Burns: LBW appeal not given. Not reviewed. And HawkEye shows THREE REDS.

He's on 21 now .. how much further damage can he inflict? #ENGvAUS #Ashes
We have a #9 already -- Pattinson has Root given OUT caught behind, and there clearly IS A WOODY SOUND. But just that the sound is not off the edge, but off the ball kissing the stump.

So even the non-LED stumps need an earthquake to fall down .. #ENGvAUS #Ashes

2/ " 'The Myth of the Greener Grass' answered many of the questions I had been struggling to answer on the subject of adultery: What causes affairs?"

~Bill Hybels, "Christians in a Sex-Crazed Culture", 1989
3/ "In fact in the Old Testament, under Mosaic Law, anyone caught in adultery received the death penalty."
