    All this only guarantees a complete fudge of a "solution" around mid March 2019.

    There will be a vague transit, with a bit that says it can be continued ad infinitum if there is "progress"

    Our lot will huff and puff about border checks, which will be sidelined under the transit fudge.

    GEs in Ireland, UK and NI in the interim will create further confusion.

    The end game? Maybe about 2022-25, with some "lose ends" to be discussed "later"

    Anybody disagree?

    If the end-game of the Brexit process isn't till 2025 then there may well be a Nationalist voting majority by then, with the Alliance/Green centrist voters and the farming/professional unionist class all mightily hacked off at the chaos disruption and general stupidity and lack of concern from Westminster.

    So it won't be the "end game" at all, more like the end of the pre-credit title sequence.

    Exactly, or perhaps, which was one of my possibilities in the OP. There will be various GEs in the period up to '22,

    Depends on how rigid the March 2019 fudge will be. If it is as vague as many of the previous EU agreements then anything is possible.

    From Bloomberg......
    U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May and Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar met in Belfast yesterday to discuss the issue that continues to bedevil Brexit: Britain’s land border with Ireland. It was easy to see why Varadkar calls it “the tricky part.”
    May is committed to keeping the Ireland-Northern Ireland border as it is now, free of checkpoints. She is also committed to not having any checkpoints between mainland Britain and Northern Ireland. And she is committed to not having a customs union with the European Union. While it’s easy to see how she can achieve any two of those, having all three at the same time is a lot tougher.
    May was typically tight-lipped after yesterday’s meeting, so we only have Varadkar’s version of events. It was, he said, “the view of both the British government and the Irish government” that “the best solution” was “a comprehensive free trade agreement and customs arrangement.” He said he wanted the deal “stitched into” the legal text on withdrawal that Britain must agree to move to the next phase of talks.
    The positive spin on this, from a British perspective, is that Ireland is Britain’s ally inside the room when the EU discusses whether it can agree to whatever May proposes.
    The negative spin is that Varadkar continues to insist on holding May to the promise she made in December – that there will be no policed border between north and south in Ireland. And he added an explicit warning, saying he was opposed to “new barriers to trade east and west.” That rules out the solution that some in Britain have proposed: separating Ireland from the rest of the EU.

    Either that, or he's a Brexiteer himself, but can't publicly admit to it, as the vast majority of the parliamentary party (and the Labour voters) are not.

    The U.K. is hemorrhaging European doctors it badly needs, and Brexit will only make it worse.The number coming over from the European Union is already at eight-year low, and non-Brits haven’t had a clear answer on whether they’ll be able to live and work in the U.K. after it leaves the EU next year—despite the government's efforts to reassure them. The National Health Service already needs more doctors, and has already been relying heavily on ones from overseas.

    So, history repeating itself yet again. Whenever the Tories get themselves into a mess, they look to play the Orange Card to whip up their knucklehead base, and the consequences for the lives of people in Ireland be damned. The GFA is getting in the way of their Hard Brexit fantasies, so the GFA must go. In just a couple of days we've had a concerted campaign on this from multiple Tory sources including swivel-eyed loons Dan Hannan, Owen Paterson and that loathsome vile psychotic witch RDE
