What happens at the Border? The first and most important question the Government needed to address, in setting out preparations for a worst-case Brexit, is the one they didn't answer.

If our leaders do have a plan, they're not telling us - and with barely a month to go a lack of communication may be as damaging as a lack of planning. If they really don't know themselves, it suggests a degree of recklessness almost beyond comprehension because the Brexit plans have set aside the crucial issue of what happens between Carlingford Lough and the mouth of the Foyle in the plausible event the UK crashes out of the European Union on March 29.
