I'm still waiting for what the Isle of Man decides.

I be the EU wouldn't let them in until they changed their name to the more inclusive "Isle of Person."
The "Man" doesn't mean that type of man, so... no.
It's all about the perception.

The Isle of Man wasn't part of the EU anyway.

yeah, I thought I was getting oxymoronic vibes from that word combo, but it's nice to see that confirmed by a guy with real field experience in the subject.

So we heard previously that the Ministry of Defence has 3,500 troops on standby for no deal contingencies.
Speaking later in the Commons, the defence secretary, Gavin Williamson, said his department “will have 3,500 service personnel held at readiness, including regulars and reserves, in order to support any government department on any contingencies they may need”.
Fair enough. But we now have the MoD putting military planners into other ministries and the Cabinet Office.
MoD sends planners to ministries over post-Brexit border fears
Military planners have been deployed to the Department for Transport, the Home Office and the Foreign Office as officials desperately try to avoid backlogs and chaos at the border in the event of a no-deal Brexit, the Observer can disclose.

Details released under the Freedom of Information Act reveal that 14 military planners have been dispatched by the Ministry of Defence to key ministries, which also include the Cabinet Office, the hub of the government’s Brexit planning, in a sign of concerns inside Whitehall at the prospect of Britain crashing out of the EU with no agreement in place.
I don't remember "Military coup" being on the ballot paper, but the closer we get to March without a deal the more likely it seems as an outcome.

Do you not find it alarming that we're now in a situation where the military are making preparations for things that are supposed to be handled by our government and civil service?
