I expect the ministers and their staff will be working behind the scenes even though parliament is not sitting over the summer, but everyone is entitled to some time away from work with their family. There will be no abyss though- that's just media spiteful talk, just a new window of opportunity.
If everyone, especially the losers, had accepted the referendum result and pulled together, we would have been out of the EU months ago and well on our way to new trade deals by now. Remainers always criticise UK Leave MPs and supporters, never the EU, who of course want us to fail badly as a warning to other member states who may be daring to think of leaving. Who wants 'friends' who behave like that!
I bet 4 years ago, the majority of Remainers never even gave much thought about the EU and certainly never woke up each morning jumping out of bed to sing their praises and say how wonderful it was to be a member state and pay £50 million A DAY to have a supposedly 'Free Trade Agreement'!!
