The Incredible Leadsom has apparently said this morning

"Itís not nearly as grim as many would advocate," she said. "The civil service have done an amazing job of ensuring that we minimise the problems. Iím not an advocate for no deal, but it would not be nearly as bad as many like to think it would be."

Of course, it is good news the civil service has worked hard on this, but they are not in the front line, are they?

Are all small international traders ready?
Have all port and other border protection staff be trained and, where necessary further staff recruited and trained?

Have vets been recruited and trained for all physiosanitary matters arising ?

In short, the civil service preparation is a drop in the ocean. What about all the rest?
