Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You assume that it is possible for people to realise things are going badly close to the March 2019 date, and panic then. In fact, 18 months is not too long a time for business planning, and we're already past that point. If "No sufficient progress" remains the situation this December, businesses will start executing contingency plans for a no-deal brexit. BY the end of March the entire UK economy will be gearing for autarchy whatever the politicians say.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
