It's not even just that, they think it's worth it (and presumably that it won't affect them personally so much) somehow. To "get it over with" as though No Deal wouldn't be just the beginning of a colossal fucking mess for the next several decades. 

Tories helping a lot by being impressively incompetent but labour played a blinder yesterday and today. I have a tiny sliver of optimism.

I dare say that if you were a fund manager with a business in, I dunno, Ireland, there's a great deal of money to be made by short-selling shares in UK industries that rely on the EU.

Seems like lots happened/happening - where can I find a good (but concise) summary of everything?

Depends how granular you want it. Guardian politics live is pretty good moment to moment.

Ideally I'd like Neo Kung Fu format...

I don't suppose there's an option I'm missing to view that Guardian info all on one page and in proper chronological order?

It's neater on the mobile app, where the Live button brings up all posts in chronological order and as you scroll down you can select a number of sub-categories including UK Politics Live. With the www site you have to wait until the Live categories pop up on the front page or section pages. The Live posts are again chronological, but in pages so you have to click on at the bottom of each one. It would be easy to rationalise in the same fashion as the app, but they haven't.

Looks like it's in the bag, but WWBD?

No, they're backwards. It's not chronological is you don't start at the beginning. :@

Anyway, I made a script to grab all the pages and reverse the order - browse to the first live page, open the console, paste the following script, hit return, and when it's done it'll scroll to the first entry. If I could be arsed I'd probably make it a GreaseMonkey script or something.

(function fixGuardianLive()
{
	var BlockSelector = '.blocks';
	var NavSelector = '.liveblog-navigation__link[data-link-name="older page"]';

	var Blocks = document.querySelector(BlockSelector);
	var FixedBlocks = [];

	appendBlocks(Blocks.children);
	http_get( document.querySelector(NavSelector).attributes.href.value , addNextPage );


	function complete()
	{
		Blocks.innerHTML = FixedBlocks.reverse().join() ;
		Blocks.children[0].scrollIntoView();
	}
	
	function appendBlocks(Items)
	{
		for ( var c = 0 ; c < Items.length ; ++c )
			FixedBlocks.push( Items[c].outerHTML );
	}

	function addNextPage()
	{
		if ( this.status !== 200 )
		{
			console.error('Failed to append next page')
			console.log(this);
			return;
		}

		var Content = document.createElement('div');
		Content.innerHTML = this.responseText;

		appendBlocks( Content.querySelector(BlockSelector).children );

		var NextPageUrl = Content.querySelector(NavSelector).attributes.href;

		if ( typeof NextPageUrl !== 'undefined' )
		{
			http_get( NextPageUrl.value , this.onload );
		}
		else
		{
			complete();
		}
	};

	function http_get(url,onload)
	{
		var request = new XMLHttpRequest();
		request.open('GET',url,true);
		request.onload = onload;
		request.onerror = function(){console.error('Connection error');console.log(this);};
		request.send();
	}
})()
