It's a statement of the bleeding obvious. 

Trouble is no one can predict the precise issues

One thing is for sure. HQ's persistent trips to London to lobby and negotiate on our behalf have been a complete and utter waste of time

It was clear from the outset that this was a waiting game, and that the CD's were going to be at the very bottom of priorities. Even to someone unaware of that, the fact would have surely dawned very early on in proceedings. We have a head of Crown and External Relations who could both lobby the position, and update COMIN as necessary.

Bet Mrs Miggin's pie shop did a roaring trade....

Now if what's outlined in that article had been made clear as part of the Referendum In/Out options back in 2016.....take a look at Point 17 as well.

Hang on  Non-believer, it's not a fact sheet, it's a guess as to what might happen.  All we can be sure of is that things will get worse, we don't know how much or specifically where

I'm sure he got some lovely pocket handkerchiefs in duty free. Maybe even a cravat or two
