    4. Utter dysfunction.

    The only thing that will save a hard Brexit at this stage is a delay to Article 50 and a people's vote imo. Otherwise it is WTO tariffs for the UK and God knows what for the border.
    But blue passports!

    In the scenario of a no-deal Brexit, did not the UK government give commitments to proceed to phase two of the Brexit negotiations that ruled out a border in the absence of a deal? And in the absence of a deal, this effectively meant continued alignment to the EU? I don't see how it is possible for the UK to break cleanly away from the EU and to adhere to past agreements/ commitments made.

    The whole thing is a shambles. They've made ironclad commitments that are mutually incompatible. And the loudest voices over here seem to be swinging towards a no deal that closes the borders completely and sinks the country on a point of principle.
