Not preparing for Brexit March 13, 2017Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
There’s been a fair bit of noise in the media about how unprepared the ROI government is in relation to Brexit, but sheesh, this report here (and similar stories are all over the UK media) suggest that the UK is – despite being the protagonist of this particular story, near enough completely unprepared for various eventualities.
With British Prime Minister Theresa May set to trigger the start of Article 50 withdrawal process within days, the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee said there was real possibility the talks could end with no deal.
But despite the potentially grave consequences, the committee said it had seen no evidence of serious contingency planning by the government.
What on earth accounts for that? Arrogance, short-sightedness, delusion? It may be alright on the night. But I wouldn’t bet on it.
