My guess is that the backstop is in fact a red herring. Boris knows that he can't re negotiate because as IDS told Marr the EU are brilliant hard nosed negotiators who totally outmanoeuvred our team. He also will be aware that the chances of being able to leave on NoDeal are, to use his favourite phrase, vanishingly small.

So Bozza will be searching for a get out from his latest declarations of do or die. My guess is that Brexit isn't the ditch that he is prepared to die in he will prefer to trim and stay in No10. Whether that will work is another question entirely but I expect a rapid change of course pdq.
