I’m a Remainer (not a Remoaner though !) but perhaps I can be persuaded (Part 5) ?

Just read the government paper on customs. Pretty scary. It’s the sort of thing that should have been published at least a year ago if they’re serious.

They seem to think that we can become both a Third Country and also act as some sort of agent for the EU. They’re now seeking views from business on these broad objectives with talk of a stakeholder engagement programme !

There’s a sense that we need to be ready for March 19 (with a fallback as well !) but there’s no reality check on the short time available or the resources needed to cope with such a change.

Also they use this paper to promise that there are lots of White Papers due ‘soon’ on this and other things.

What a mess !!!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
