Thing I don't understand about Brexit. Govt says we're leaving the EU, single market, free movement area etc in April 2019. 20 months away.

But if that's happening, why isn't Dover a big building site? We will need to massively increase customs capacity to check stuff in & out.

We will (at least) need to have increased border checks in Northern Ireland. So why aren't the government buying up sites along the border?

We will need new agencies *up and running* on April 1 2019 for air safety, maritime safety, chemicals, medicines, disease prevention etc.

So where are the buildings being built, bought or leased for these new agencies? Where are the job advertisements for these new agencies?

And so on. All the stuff that should be happening if we're leaving the EU in 2019 isn't actually happening. There are two possible reasons.

1) Our government is incompetent or 2) They don't expect us to leave the EU in 2019 cos they hope an excuse to delay/cancel will turn up.

The mystery is why all the 'Brexiteers' aren't kicking up a fuss about this. Surely they should be asking why this stuff isn't happening?

That’s pretty much the definition of Brexit. How is it “the thing” you don’t understand?

Apparently Heathrow will need to be redeveloped and that could take well over 2 years

3rd possibility is govt plans having open borders, admitting imports from EU without tariff or control. This also best route to prosperity.

Yes, but AFAIK they have ruled out open borders - no way we can have them if we're not in the single market/customs union AIUI.

*We* can have open borders even if EU does not. We will decide our own import control policy. It need not be reciprocal.

I'm sure all decisions regarding Heathrow will be expedited with the usual swift efficiency...

I see what you mean. There should be big building sites in Calais rather than Dover.

The DUP told the Irish PM he'd have to "wait and see" the plans for the border - I suspect they're looking at a Pop-Up border type thing
