Remember all the times that ministers told us they were making contingency preparations for no-deal Brexit, setting aside ยฃ3bn and appointing a no-deal minister etc...?

Well, according to a letter from Davis to May (leaked to FT) they are now consulting lawyers about EU's own contingency preparations for a no-deal Brexit. Here's the scoop.

In the words of : "It seems extraordinary that the government is exercised about the EU preparing for a no deal scenario when it has set aside ยฃ3bn in its most recent Budget to do exactly the same thing..."

Key to Dexeu complaint is that EU - in its advice to companies - is ignoring likelihood that UK will get a 2-year transition period. Davis has urged May to call on Commission to withdraw the advice and has consulted lawyers....

Unfortunately for David Davis his lawyers have warned him that government has "low" chance of successful legal action vs EU, and it would be costly and politically risky

"Any legal action would be high risk politically" ๐Ÿค”So the imbecile has asked for legal advice which has explained to him that any legal recourse is through the ECJ?

Wait ... what? Errr ... hmmm. Pointing out the letter's illogicality and lack of value would be ... pointless, yes?

Davisโ€™ complaint seems to be that, by making contingency plans, the Commission is failing to show the correct level of incompetence.

This is truly embarrassing. I'm sure will attack the leaker but the message is stark. We are fucked as we knew we would be but we will complain and carry on regardless.
