With Theresa May's Brexit deadline just 331 days away, it is becoming even clearer Britain is not ready to leave the EU.
However, some Leavers still think otherwise, so here is a list of ten questions to ask them.
The list has been compiled by Twitter user @RJonesUX.
26% of NHS doctors are migrants. It takes 7 years to train a doctor.— Russ (@RJonesUX) May 2, 2018
We've already lost 10,000 doctors since the referendum. We plan to expel even skilled immigrants after 5 years. So where are the courses to urgently train 23,000 replacement doctors?
Questions focus on the NHS and care workers, border staff, the civil service, the construction industry, the financial sector, and farming sector.

UK has a 19,000 mile coastline, and over 40 commercial airports.— Russ (@RJonesUX) May 2, 2018
To keep out migrants – a key promise of Brexit – we need thousands of border security staff. We are training none. Why not?
The Dept of Transport anticipates 150 miles of daily tailbacks in Kent after Brexit, as lorries queue to get through slower passport controls.— Russ (@RJonesUX) May 2, 2018
Where are the road widening schemes? The lay-bys? The traffic management investment?
The UK currently has 92,000 care home staff vacancies, and 150,000 existing carers are immigrants.— Russ (@RJonesUX) May 2, 2018
Where is the funding to train 240,000 new care home workers?
The Civil Service Managers Union estimates we'll need 28,000 additional civil servants to replace EU provision.— Russ (@RJonesUX) May 2, 2018
Where are the job adverts? The buildings? The training?
200,000 migrants work in UK construction. We're in the middle of a housing crisis.— Russ (@RJonesUX) May 2, 2018
Where is the funding to train British replacements? Where will Leavers' kids live if there's nobody around to build homes?
The National Farmers Union has warned that a lack of migrants will affect food security. There are already reports of crops rotting in fields because nobody is available to pick them.— Russ (@RJonesUX) May 2, 2018
Where are the plans to train the 80,000 seasonal workers farming needs?
Finally, 320,000 immigrants work in financial services. Where is the training to replace their skills in the next 12 months, especially as 11% of tax revenue relies on that industry?— Russ (@RJonesUX) May 2, 2018
Without them we have to make cuts bigger than the ENTIRE education budget.
