Guardian. “Now the head of the UK’s public spending watchdog, the National Audit Office, has issued a remarkable criticism of the government on the subject. Amyas Morse said that he had seen no ministerial plan to push through the necessary legal and statutory changes for the UK to leave the EU. ‘We have an issue there because we have departmental government,’ he said. ‘What we don’t want to find is that at the first tap it falls apart like a chocolate orange.'”

Bloomberg. I wonder if we’ve got any Russia hands who could chime in on this and the next two…
