And then there's things like this:
Stalled investment, fewer tourists, and a drop in food industry exports – these are just a few of the concerns Spain’s autonomous regions have about the potential economic impact of a hard Brexit.
Around 40 regions from across Europe have analyzed how they would be potentially hurt by Britain’s exit from the European Union in a new study coordinated by the European Committee of the Regions, the body which represents these regions in the EU. The document, which EL PAÍS had access to, emphasizes the “current uncertainty” in Brexit negotiations between London and Brussels and anticipates “immediate effects on commercial trade and the movement of people,” including tourists.

The *UK* is acting like the problem will go away if they refuse to *start planning anything*. Of course it won't.

But your Nigel F. didn't address the accusation (for all intents and purposes true) that the 'promoters' of Brexit had no (and have not, since the vote) viable plan for leaving the union.
Farage doesn't have a plan. He ran away soon after the result was announced, leaving the hard work to others.
Last night, he was asked on his radio show what his plan was. He said the same old same old about taking back control, which is not a plan.
Farage's children have German nationality and the man himself made a small fortune betting against the pound after the referendum.
Just another pirate pushing for no deal.

And i definitely disagree with saying he is interfering. Interfering by it's very nature means trying to influence the outcome and he isn't doing that. Instead, he is simply making a (agreed pointless) statement.
Do you not agree that there should have been plans in place by those leading the campaign? Not only is it now apparent (and documented) that there were no plans, you have had many leading Brexiteers admitting they didn't even realise the complexities involved.
Brexit is happening. Although i voted against, i have no issue with it happening - that side won the vote. But i have a major issue with a political elite that has shown how truly incompetent and clueless they are.
