If this doesn’t proved we’re well and truly fucked, I don’t know what does.
Sky News political editor Faisal Islam has been left speechless after claiming a Conservative pro-Brexit MP told him the Leave campaign ‘didn’t have a plan’ for Brexit.
Yes, that’s right. There is ‘no plan’ for Britain leaving the European Union.
Islam told his co-presenter, Anna Botting: “I said to him, so where’s the plan? Can we see the Brexit plan now?”
He said the pro-Leave Tory replied: “There is no plan. The Leave campaign don’t have a post-Brexit plan.”
The MP then apparently pointed toward the Houses of Parliament and said: “Number 10 should have had a plan”.
It sounds like I’m making that up. That literally happened two hours ago.
So – and I’ve said this before – the person with the most thought through plan, as evidenced by the past 48 hours, is, astonishingly, Nicola Sturgeon, the first minister of Scotland.
Which is – let’s be honest – worryingly true.
Botting’s response to Islam was pretty understandable: “I don’t know what to say to that.”
Conservative Leave MP, Boris backer: "there is no plan. Leave campaign don't have a post Brexit plan, Number 10 should have had one"

While Islam didn’t specify exactly who he was speaking about in the clip, he said in a Tweet that it was a Conservative Leave MP and Boris Johnson supporter who claimed there was ‘no plan’ for Brexit.
So there we have it. The pound has hit a 30 year low, there is post-EU Referendum racism on the streets of Britain and the plan that has been prepared for life after Brexit? Well, there is none.
