Dereliction of duty? Yes. Entirely predictable? Also Yes.From the moment Cameron called the referendum, the UK government should have been preparing for the possibility of a clean Brexit.
It’s scandalous that we’ve reached the situation we have, where the government is totally unprepared.
A dereliction of duty in my view.
Brexit - particularly a No Deal Brexit - is a monster task that requires a massive amount of logistical and administrative planning and infrastructure development. A monster task that our current government, and the civil service at its current levels, were never likely to be up to.
Can't see that Corbyn's lot would be either, so I just don't see how you get out of this mess other than a loooong transition period to actually sort out what needs sorting.
