SF want Brexit and a particularly disastrous one at that, but don't want to be seen as having caused it. This is calculated to help them in the push for a border poll. Expect nothing from that quarter.

Of course, that's why I stated "if they wanted to avoid Brexit"

For Sinn Fein both outcomes present a win-win result. The Jackpot would of course be a border poll with a realistic chance of winning. But Sinn Fein are not anywhere near the driving seat here.
The irony is that the very same tactic is now being used by Johnson and the DUP in this latest proposal. The proposal itself is constructed to look like a compromise (hence the Irish Sea border) but of course a perpetual DUP veto every four years makes it entirely unacceptable for the EU. In short it has been designed to fail.
It is clear that Johnson and Foster are already in post Brexit planning and are burnishing their excuses in advance of the chaos they anticipate when the UK crashes out. "We tried but the evil, intransigent EU wouldn't compromise" is going to be Johnson's prepared line, while Foster's is a "copy and paste" version with "Dublin government" replacing "EU".
