It seems Olly Robbins is off to Brussels again today about "how the broad outline of the future arrangement between the EU and the UK could be changed if there were to be some kind of deal" (in the words of Laura Kuenssberg.)

The future arrangements are defined by the political declaration attached to the Withdrawal Agreement and are not legally binding. That would not matter so much if both sides committed to them in good faith. But since the UK side has possible May replacements who openly declare they do not agree with what it says, it is hard to see the value of this.
