Brexit heat causes febrile activity among Brexiters and UK Government alike
UK government no-deal papers are appearing, that is, papers that set out real penalties for ordinary people. These penalties may still apply even if a withdrawal agreement and transition period is agreed but there is no post Brexit agreement on … Continue reading
