At this point I think it's safe to say that if you have any movable assets, probably transfer them out of Sterling into USD or EUR. If May and Davis really can't make any headway with talks because they're too busy trying to play political games with them they we really are on course for a total catastrophe.

Papers will be released tomorrow with projections for the effects of a No-Deal scenario, assuming the government don't find yet another way to bodge them. They're becoming increasingly adept at subverting any form of democratic process to hide their own corruption/incompetence.

Three more weeks for the release of the Brexit impact papers apparently because they don't include 'qualitative forecasts' and need to be prepared, despite the fact that Davis has previously said that they do and that Theresa May has only seen summaries of them because the full documents go into 'gruelling detail'.

Steve Baker, one of the Brexit ministers, even went as far to say that Labour forcing the government to release these papers is 'unpatriotic' of them.

We really are being taken for an absolute ride aren't we.

Let's not also forget the international development secretary secretly negotiating sending UK aid to Israeli territory that we do not formally recognise and then lying about how many meetings she had. Or Boris Johnson making false comments that could potentially lead to an extended prison sentence for a UK citizen in Iran. Or the growing sexual harassment scandal prevalent in Westminster. Or the Conservative donors and peers who have all recently been outed as having massive investments in offshore tax havens. It's getting hard to keep up with the amount of scandals cropping up, those are all just this last week. No wonder none of them have the time to actually put any proper work into Brexit.

People will still vote for them of course won't they.

I think there are only two ways through this:

1) Be rich.

2) Become a Daily Mail reader and ride the waves of ignorance.

Other ideas appear to be exhausted.

Mediaeval 2, here we come tbh. The rich have been raising the drawbridge the last decade or so, everyone else, and their services, have been leached into virtual non-existence.
