Very generous - no-one can complain about that.
I bet some do, though...

Government no deal preparations are irresponsible, unnecessary and dangerous.
The latest from Chris Grey, Professor of Organization Studies at Royal Holloway, University of London.

"We are now approaching a very dangerous moment of national polarisation, including threats of political violence, of a sort unknown in modern British political history. It is completely reprehensible that the government, under the guise of ‘pragmatism’, are inflaming rather than defusing that danger."

According to an analysis I've seen, apparently the measures being considered by the EU are primarily intended to support the EU members through the turmoil of a Nodexit - that they will also benefit the UK is incidental...

The opinions of Professor Robert Patman, Department of Politics, University of Otago, New Zealand. A couple of days old, but worth 8 minutes of your time, I'd say.

A reminder of what lies just below the surface of the Peace Agreement in Northern Ireland: this documentary was made in 1993, just as the Peace Agreement was being negotiated. And this is what a No Deal Brexit (and the consequences that a re-establishment of the border between North and South might have on people's lives) might spark:

That was 1993.

This is [Northern] Ireland now - December 2018:

Most of the people in Westminster arguing about Brexit now either don't know or don't care.

DON'T PANIC!
Police advise stores to hire extra security in case of Brexit panic-buying.
"The news of possible stockpiling comes after Dave Lewis, the chief executive of supermarket chain Tesco, revealed the retailer was working with suppliers to stockpile non-perishable goods -- like tinned food -- in case the UK leaves the European Union on March 29 without a deal.
"The biggest challenge will be where it's hard to get that sort of contingency in places when it comes to fresh food, where you can't stockpile," Lewis said in a conference call with journalists on Thursday.
"Like all food retailers, we'd be very keen that there was no sort of friction at the border, given that the UK imports about half of the fresh food that it eats," he added."

From Sky News. 11.30pm, 14.01.19. Predicting Government loss of tomorrow's vote by 225. We'll have to wait and see.

Well! Remarkably close prediction. It was lost by 230.
