I actually agree with this statement, and one of the huge failings of May's time as PM in my eyes is the lack of planning. We should have been preparing not just for Brexit, but for no-deal from the time she took over.

Whatever people think of Boris Johnson, he has made preparation for leaving on 31st October a top priority for his government. Whether we have enough time, I don't know. As a leaver, I wouldn't be against the idea of a limited extension if there was a real possibility of re-negotiating the current deal, but the EU are saying that's not going to happen and I simply don't think Johnson has the electoral arithmetic to get even a revised deal through the house. And he has staked a lot of credibility on actually leaving this time.
