Another #brexit rehearsal.
And yesterday there were panic tweets from the government saying "please please pretty please, won't somebody buy some holidays?"
Certainly I'm one of those who hasn't. Look at the airline Ts&Cs FFS! - "if we can't fly because of #brexit we'll give you your money back".
Yeah, sure. Like any European loco which loses 80% or whatever of its routes is going to stay in business long enough to refund anything to anybody. And the airfare is the cheapest part of the holiday these days anyway - nobody is offering to refund your pre-paid hotel and car hire costs if the planes don't fly.
Solution: don't buy a holiday just right now. And sufficient people have come to the same view that the government is in a panic all over Twitter.
