Sounds perfectly reasonable to me.
"...they got everything they wanted"
I didn't. But I've settled for the kind of "half way house" we have negotiated (provided the latest changes to deal with the EU's problems in Ireland are satisfactory). The difference is, although I've had to accept a compromise, I don't keep going on about it. trawling the internet for idiotic YouTube articles every day.
I put it to you the lack of action is blatant. As an example look how there is n9w an internal border in the UK. That is clearly unacceptable to any rational individual. You, therefore, must see it is natural not to be satisfied with the present state of affairs, and impossibility doesn't come in to it.
Plus I'm sure many people find themselves using the same word as others, so your implied point is ?
"..oh please newjudge... you've won. you've got the hardest brexit imaginable short of leaving without a deal... hardly a "compromise" is it"
Not the hardest as far as I'm concerned. As above, the main gripe is an internal border within the UK which is totally unacceptable. As I've said, neither Ireland nor the UK wants a border on the island of Ireland. Only the EU does so they should organise it (if Ireland are foolish enough to allow them to). You may have voted against such a "complication" but without the EU no such complication would exist. A borderless Ireland has worked quite satisfactorily before both countries joined the EU and it is preposterous that one should be required if one party leaves.
There are other problems with the "deal" that was reached, not least the EU's belief that it can continue to interfere in the UK's non-trade affairs. It recently suggested that the government's "Minimum Service Level" legislation broke the terms of the agreement, even though only public sector industies were affected by it and it has no influence on trade with the UK.
Never mind. A small step has been taken in the right direction and when we get a government which sees Brexit as an opportunity and not a damage limitation exercise, things may improve. Meanwhile the EU can continue to puff and bluster, legislating and regulating until it disappears up one of its many orifices.
