    “Please keep your arms and legs in the car at all times until the ride comes to a complete stop”

    I briefly read the section dealing with my own professional interest. Essentially says “we’re talking to the EU guys and the lads in the North.” As you’d expect. No details.

    Scanned through most of it. I did feel at times the document should “get on with it”, its not a secondary school essay. Bullet points followed by a few detailed paragraphs will be fine.

      A lot of references in this to the government ‘planning to’ do various things. Three months to go and after two years they’re still ‘planning to’ do some things.
      I think they’ve put more time into waffling in this document than they’ve actually done actually preparing for the various kind of eventualities. They have the option to take on 200 customs staff. The people that they were meant to get back to were meant to get word in November and now have been told they’ll know in January.
      If there’s a hard brexit in March there will be a few hundred new customs officials that won’t have a clue about the customs job. That’ll be fun and games.
      That’s the result of giving boys men’s jobs

        I doubt there’s any left

        remember hearing back in the day that taking 6-8 iodine tablets was equivalent to half an E. it was a far gentler buzz from what I recall.

    Ok so as the “Government is now prioritising no deal planning”, with work commencing in January – if Theresa’s Deal or ANY Deal is accepted, then will our government be financially compensated by the UK government for this report and the cost of all no-deal-Brexit preparations to date? The cost of other national priorities such as health and housing being bumped over is difficult to quantify, I know, but it’s there.
