    Re: Brexit - Time to scrap it and start again?

    I don't think that was a smart move by Merkel, even if on the face of it it's an empty gesture. Or rather because it's an empty gesture. It gives Boris a pretext to ostensibly work on alternatives...

    Not bad. You got one half almost right. The phrase is rather more common than that though.
