"This really did seem to be a thing that occupied the minds of staunch remainers. They seemed to have some obsession with WW1/2 and also kept referring to going backwards to the 1970's too. I never understood their desire over all that."
Your memory is dodgy. https://blogs.lse.ac.uk/brexit/2020/01/31/ww2-has-become-a-rallying-point-for-leavers-it-need-not-have-been-so/
UK economy took a bigger hit and has been slower to recover than any other comparable country (despite what Bozo The Clown likes to repeat)

With you on the first three but project management here is more like that scene in Friends where Joey wears all of Chandler's clothes. You can't even think about doing requirements gathering until you've filled in half a dozen forms, been to a bunch of meetings and kissed the ring of at least one PHB.

From past experience this will result in the same people doing the same jobs at the same desks only with different headed notepaper. Half the staff will quit and come back as contractors on five times the salary. Expensive branding will be undertaken. Capita and co will make a fortune. NHS digital efforts will be same or worse.
Last time I was out there in those sepia-toned pre-pandemic days, the mobile broadband was pretty incredible. Couple of gigabytes allowance per day for pennies, decent download and upload speeds and reliable connections. But only if you have a friendly local who'll front up a sim for you as they insist on photo ID and generally are wary of anything other than an Indian-issued ID.
Wired broadband, on the other hand, is shockingly bad. Frequently cuts out for anything between a few seconds and a few hours.
