They should have assumed no deal

They should have prepared for the scenario that is hardest for the systems to cope with - no deal. Systems that could cope with no deal would have coped with a deal, but no vice-versa.

The problem is that they complacently assumed there would be a deal. Its a reflection of the governments wider mistake, assuming that the negotiations would be cooperative and reasonable rather than adversarial.
