Getting the feeling that there's too much #brexit #backstop bravado and too little sense?

Howsabout a 4 slide summary from @DPhinnemore & me setting out what we can be pretty sure of and what the UK/EU (dis)agree on - as viewed from Northern Ireland.

1st: a lack of progress on the Protocol on NI/IRL in the draft Withdrawal Agmt.
All these colours have to turn green (i.e. agreed in principle & text) before we get that Deal for exit day next March.

Note that red circle - backstop is intended to be trumped at some point.
2nd: a summary of what is agreed on and what is still missing re: @BorderIrish and NI.
Note the extent of Northern Ireland-specific arrangements.

You've seen a version of this a couple of months ago. Not much progress here since you last saw it.

HT @robmurphybe @mauricecampbell
Subject to any transitional arrangement in a Withdrawal Agreement, the following applies for the movement of goods between the EU27 (inc IRL) & the UK as a third country, as of 30 March 2019:

Goods which are brought into the EU's customs territory from UK or vice versa are subject to customs supervision & may be subject to customs controls,
i.e. customs formalities apply, declarations have to be lodged, customs authorities may require guarantees for customs debts.
