The fault doesn't just lie with the Government but those who refused to accept the referendum result and delayed processes with court cases. It wasn't the Government who delayed and prevaricated but PARLIAMENT who argued over timelines.

In my opinion (which I'm entitled to) the "mess" has been caused by Remainers who refused to accept they lost!
Two weeks until deadline and Boris still hasn't got a plan, and you STILL blame remainers.
