The report from the Irish government warns of the consequences of a no-deal Brexit for Ireland, including job losses, a £6 billion economic impact and food shortages.
MPs voted to reject a no-deal Brexit ‘under any circumstances’ in a series of pivotal votes.
Britain is unprepared for a no-deal Brexit because the Government thinks spending money on something that might not happen would be more unpopular than the fallout from a chaotic exit, a civil servant has revealed. The official, who chose to remain anonymous, unveiled a damning picture of the UK’s readiness to leave without a deal in The Guardian. The civil servant said that Operation Yellowhammer, the official Government term for no deal preparations, ‘hasn’t really got going yet’, despite the UK being set to leave the EU in less than 60 days.
Currently on the A256 in Kent, there are 100 lorries doing a mock traffic jam to replicate no-deal conditions. Back in Westminster, Theresa May had another plan to secure support for her deal. The four parts of the trade negotiation will be: preparing positions, negotiating them, ratifying the deal, and then implementing it.
