Or in other words.. "A peoples vote".

As explained before a "no deal Brexit" IS Brexit, as to whether this constitutes "Disorderly" depends on your politics and how you wish to frame your arguments. It's my understanding, for example, that the UK and Germany have agreed to continue doing business with regards to Finance and the City of London, this suggests that agreements are indeed already in place, making option B disingenuous, or at least superfluous.

Ironically, possibly lost on the designer of the poll, the thought process for the original Referendum would have boiled down to the same point, leading to the only intellectually reasonable choice, to Leave or to Remain.

I chose A in this poll, not necessarily because of personal preference, but because I believe its the option most accurately aligned with the current political reality.

It isn't "just" politics. Politics and business, who will do well and who will be hurt, are central to each other and have real outcomes for real people. The people least likely to benefit in any scenario are those "ordinary people" in whose name the leave campaign blew its dog whistle so hard.

I'm sure the banks will take care of their own, whatever happens, and equally I doubt that Scunthorpe, or places like Portsmouth where my son currently studies, will be getting much benefit from that. Which isn't surprising of course, since the problems were always something the UK government could and should have addressed but no, we needed "austerity" apparently. For some.

There is clearly a good deal of horse trading going on.

Given all that's been suggested and prepared for - even by those in favour of leaving and even described as "sensible" measures - the awarding of contracts to shipping companies without ships to help deal with expected shortages of foods and medicines etc - and I repeat these expectations have been expressed by those on the Brexit side, not just project fear - disorderly seems a perfectly reasonable and moderate description.

You invoke Chris Grayling and Seaborne freight and expect that to prove your point, huh?

Ok fair enough, you win.

"Disorderly" could apply to any of the three options.

It could be out with an agreement and disorderly
