In response to yesterday's speculation about a delay to Breixt because of the lack of civil servants. The Gevernment is now under pressure to clarify it's position.
Problem is I don't think anyone could reasonably clarify their position in this mess. As government you want the country to be in the best possible position when Article 50 is invoked. You only have one shot at it so it has to be right. Only an idiot would commit to a delivery date this early in the process. But the Leavers and the likes of Nigel Farage will press for exactly this, simply because it will make them look like champions of the people's will without having the in convent problem of actually making it work. That will be someone else's problem and if it goes wrong they will blame someone else.
