 I'm only not sure exactly where. Some shallow waters.
A lot of choice.

That's the only way to make the EU cartel liquid and transparent: draw the border in the sea.

What payment should the UK demand from the EU to reopen negotiations?

I have heard BoJo described as a uniting figure (by himself), and it does indeed appear that he has united his cabinet into being entirely in favor of no deal. So he probably can’t be bribed...

And the counterparty is in the stage of nonexistence - the old commission is no more, the new one is not yet. How can you imagine negociations? With whom?

You wonder how long it will take for Trump to lash out at the UK for being a currency manipulator. They may be somewhat protected by their current EU member status (am not actually sure), but post Brexit they would definitely be fair game. Especially as the pound approaches parity.

BJ and his government cannot negotiate. They are Eton boys - raised to getting everything served on a silver platter. They would have to be crazy to go to negotiations with determined (if not desperate to protect their cushy EU posts) experienced negotiators. Just my little injection.

Ask again in September. EU on holidays in Rimini in August.

Even if they could, could you trust them at their word?

They cannot lie either. They never had to.

I think Ireland should chip in a few large. If they had their way the EU would throw Ireland to the wolves in pursuit of their anti democratic dream.
