EU diplomat on Boris letter to Tusk.

"3 years on & still this letter fails to put forward any realistic alternatives for the backstop. Hope and imagination don’t keep the border away. This letter is not request to renegotiate, it’s a clear cut attempt to avoid it all cost.
"If the British government was serious it would just ask the EU to trust them. Because if they did, the EU would have to look at it; this is not a moment for thin skinned action."
EU dip: "The British would put forward proposals of their own to avoid the border per the wish of  majority of the people in Northern Ireland.

In diplomacy there’s no space for hubris or pride but good intentions will not keep the border away. It doesn’t work like that"
