      It would have been a sight easier had there been some preparation, some planning and some contingency for a 'no deal' scenario as well as some idea over an agreed, realistic negotiating strategy before just invoking Article 50 over a year ago now, instead of just hitting and hoping and losing control over the destiny of things to The EU. Still, who cares, we're British! (For now at least)
      Each to his choice, and I rejoice the lot has fallen to me
      In a fair ground-in a fair ground -
      Yea, Sussex by the sea!

      That's more to do with the EU rules as we can't make any trade deals until we have officially left. The government have their hands tied. I don't know what deal politicians are expecting this country get, your either in the EU or out.

      What have EU rules got to do with contingency planning and applying all the infrastructure, systems, agencies, agreements, staff etc required in place for a 'no deal' scenario? e.g what's required in Kent for Dover/Cheriton.

      Don't you think Cameron should have maybe thought of this before going for the vote/referendum so sure that it would go his way. The coward resigned straightaway knowing what shitstorm was being stirred due to his failure. Maybe a few less scare stories from the start and the result might have gone his way.
      Sadly the scare stories get regurgitated n a regular basis on this thread with the timeline for them just being extended although those scenarios were destined almost immediately after the vote according to the Remain rhetoric at the time.
      Now we have the job losses at Rolls Royce being blamed on Brexit. What about Ford who move manufacturing to Spain whilst in the EU, All the Coal mines closing whilst in the EU, ship building etc etc all whilst in the EU. Many thousands more jobs gone there .

      I agree with you on Cameron. It was an act of total gross negligence to not prepare for the eventuality of a 'leave' vote, as has the total lack of planning been ever since under May. If you still wish to dismiss any negatives of a 'no deal' scenario next March as just being 'Project Fear', that's up to you. Nobody bothered to mention customs checks, let alone everything else, on the Vote Leave side during the wretched Project Fantasy v Project Fear campaign either, it might not have gone down as well in Kent, let alone Northern Ireland if they had.

      The devil whispered in my ear : "You're not strong enough to withstand the storm."
      I whispered in the devils ear : " I am the storm."

      HAVE YOU EVER ASKED A LEAVE VOTER WHY THEY VOTED LEAVE AND IF YOU HAVE WHAT WAS THEIR ANSWER ?
      regards

      Can I mention a random 10, taken from leave-supporting friends and TV interviews...

      "I thought it was about whether we want more immigrants."
      "There's a lack of democratic accountability."
      "Too many Russians are buying houses in London"
      "The British are different."
      "I hate all those freeloaders in Brussels."
      "Cameron is boring. I"m voting for an entertainer politician."
      "There's a real problem with muslims."
      "Calais has got more fishing boats than Margate."
      "People down the shops talking jibber-jabber."
      "I want to throw out my rulers if I don't like them."

      All are genuine. One or two are sensible. My favourite comment wasn't really a comment at all, and came from someone who probably voted Remain. "I think I voted Labour in that referendum thing but I can't remember."

      On such shoulders does the future of our country now lie.
