That interview is from 2017.

Fair enough, I guess I should have noticed that!

In September 2017, it was still a strawberry floating stupid thing to say. In what way should we have been "just getting on with it"? If anything we were going at an unreasonably quick pace, we had triggered Article 50 in March while still not having a cross-parliament agreement on what Brexit should look like. Since then we'd had a general election which waylaid us---this was Theresa May playing games, nothing to do with Remoaners or whatever---but there had still been three rounds of Brexit talks, we were just about to have a fourth. So I have no idea what "just getting on with it" could possibly mean in this context.

And in what way was anyone trying to ignore the vote, particularly at that time? People's Vote didn't launch 'til 2018. Was he just ranting about people who thought the negotiations weren't going well? I think it was around September 2017 that people started to seriously see the Irish border as a problem, in his head was this a Remoaner conspiracy? It turned out to be pretty important.

Ringo Starr is a dickhead in 2019 or 2017.

(EDIT: I'm annoyed at him, not you, just in case that's not clear!)

You know that old saying about how you should never meet your heroes? Same thing, but never learning about their Brexit opinions.

I think they want to know if it is changing, and it would be great if someone who actually knows could tell them

Iceland UK supermarket MD Richard Walker has said that no-deal was not what he voted for when he opted for ‘leave’ in the 2016 referendum.

Walker, son of Iceland founder and executive chairman Sir Malcolm, told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme he “never heard discussions about no-deal”.

“I know politicians will say different now but I was told ‘the easiest deal in history and we’d hold all the cards,’” Walker said.

Talking on the programme yesterday (9 September), he said uncertainty was “crippling” business, which was unprepared for Brexit.

“What I want is clarity and certainty and I think it’s the relentless uncertainty that’s crippling business,” he said. “And I think there was a British Chambers of Commerce survey out over the weekend and they found overwhelmingly - it’s not a surprise given this uncertainty - that business just isn’t prepared.”

He also said Iceland was “perhaps more resilient than most” to disruption thanks to its stocks of frozen food.

“The majority of our products are sourced in the UK and I suppose for our competitors there are obvious limitations to stockpiling fresh and complexities of just-in-time supply chains,” he told the programme.

Walker said he didn’t know how bad disruption for supermarkets would be, adding: “There are no facts here. There’s only opinion. But freezing food I suppose is a solution to many of the complications. It gives more certainty to our supply chain. Products are sourced months in advance with up to one to two years’ of shelf life.”

A Halloween EU departure was bad timing, Walker said, because warehouses were full of stock as the group built up supplies towards Christmas.

Walker said he wanted “clarity and certainty” because it was the “relentless” uncertainty that was crippling business.

The big fear from a business community perspective was that the chaos could provide an entry for a Corbyn-McDonnell government, he said.

You should be not able to get to the position of MD in a major organisation whilst being that stupid and gullible.

The EU has such an obvious problem with combating the populist right and racism in general. The lack of diversity in the elections in May was quite stark.
