I think obsession is fine when each day that goes by demonstrates you're right Goff. It's less so when each day shows you you're not. The evidence backs you into such a tight corner that you end up claiming you'll be delighted if there's no deal. Wot the actual feck?

Yes! Absolutely. Obsession in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary is the unhealthy option. We expect our politicians to never admit to being wrong (even though I'd respect them infinitely more if they could say "I'm sorry - I can't bring to mind the exact figure right now" or similar) but it shouldn't be that way and certainly not for us normals, who are perfectly entitled to make mistakes! And also to admit when we've made a mistake! We'd certainly not be in this mess if someone in any position of power had the balls to stand up and say "This has gone far enough. It is unworkable. We need to rethink the whole thing".
