I am still trying to work out EU logic:

The EU insists that the 'backstop' has to remain in place "in order to protect the Irish border".

The 'backstop' has been rejected by the UK Parliament three times.

The EU insisting on the 'backstop' makes a 'no deal exit' most likely.

The UK leaving without a deal will give no 'protection' to the Irish border.

So, insisting on the 'backstop' is most likely to mean no 'protection' for the Irish border.

Do the EU know what they are on about?

I think the most coherent approach to this is that of the Monster Raving Loony Party who state that there will be no need for a backstop as they will have Alec Stewart as their wicketkeeper.
