Oldies don't matter Rupert. That's what I'm told. They have stolen the young's future.

Well... we have. It's unconscionable how my generation and the generation before me have spent the resources of the generations after us. Whether we're talking government debt or environmental degradation, they have a right to be mad, even to sue us for reparations as they are starting to do in the US.

There are fewer of them, but those left still vote.

From here, it appears that Labour has blocked all the exits from the EU.

I think the EU decide now. It’s pretty much that way as I see it?

The constitutional upheaval caused by membership of what is now the EU was the greatest in the country’s history since the Glorious Revolution of 1688. For almost 300 years, the “old constitution” was self-contained and largely immune to outside influences.

One River's Eric Peters asked if Brtiain held another referendum, which way it’d go? “We’re split in two mate, we’re absolutely shattered.”

I’m totally lost as to where Brexit stands and what happens next or when.

Same.

From here, it looks like there will not be a 2nd public referendum.  It also looks like it's going to be a 'hard' Brexit.

You have Farage that came out of retirement to try and force Brexit through. If it happens, he'll retire again.

Seems most parliamentarians are against a no-deal Brexit

No one has a roadmap for what they intend to do post-Brexit. It's fine getting trade deals but they'll take time, the short-term risk is high. The main trade deal is obviously with the EU who tend to take a long time.

Whoever the Government get as their new leader, they're doing to be dealt the same hand. No majority for no deal, May's deal is dead, the EU aren't going to renegogotiate and as much as there's ~half the country wanting to cancel it all, there's a lot of animosity for holding another referendum... and that referendum as it stands would seem to be remain versus no deal.

Is Anybody in the UK (ie. business, government, industry, finance, common people) actively making plans for what they will do in the event of different Brexit scenarios?

All the news I'm seeing for years now is either: A. a parade of horribles in the event of Brexit, B. vague tap-dancing around solutions and political drama, but I don't see anyone that has hard answers.  It's all process over getting things done.  At least that is what it looks like to me.  Anyone have a clue?
