If I leaked reasonably confidential information in my job I'd probably be dismissed for gross misconduct.
How then are treasury ministers allowed to flash sensitive documents in bright sunshine to the waiting press knowing full well that they'd be there.
Are all civil servants complete idiots or are they looking for another excuse to sabotage Brexit?

'Leaks' of this kind happen as a way of unofficially getting information out to test the water without committing themselves immediately. It's planned, not a sackable offence.

Yellowhammers have a Red conservation status due to recent population decline. However, they are sometimes seen (and heard) on Landport Bottom. I've several times seen them coming to drink at Jill's Pond (also linnets). The song of the Yellowhammer is usually described as "Little bit of bread and no cheese", which might or might not be a description of what we can expect to have to eat after Brexit day.

I regularly used to see a yellowhammer on the hedgerow between Landport Bottom and the field where the reservoir is, but I haven't seen him for years.
I had no idea they were on the Red List. They're really pretty little birds, it would be very sad to lose them,

It depends which side of the fence you're residing.
If you're a lazy peasant then you'll be no worse off as you'll be poor already. You'll still have benefits to claim.
If you've got a vested interest in being a member of the EU with your snout in the trough then yes, this gravy train had ended.
For those of us who employ people and run an enterprise, bring it on. Business has never been so good.
Your glass is either half full or half empty.
If you haven't got a glass, go and find one!
