And what happens at the end of that period? There will be the same two options on the table - customs union or a hard border. All it will do is avoiding a hard border very soon. So Boris can make his pick which campaign promise he wants to break.

My favourite line from the Jenkins editorial is, by the way:

"Trade is not about control but about power. The UK has little power against its bigger neighbour. If it wanted power it should have stayed in the EU, or at the very least in Thatcher’s single market. Johnson sacrificed such power to outflank his rivals for the leadership."
