  • 'Negative impacts, delays and lack of supplies' to Jersey in event of no-deal Brexit

In better news for the embattled British leader, a Belfast court rejected claims that the Conservative government's Brexit strategy should be ruled illegal because it risked undermining Northern Ireland's peace process.

But many lawmakers, campaigners, economists and businesses fear that a no-deal Brexit would be economically devastating.

The government was forced to make the report public by the United Kingdom parliament.

Traffic queues could affect fuel deliveries and trade routes, disrupting supplies of medicines and fresh food.

It also said that a no-deal exit could trigger major protests and even riots.

"We've planned for it and government does that well", he insisted.

The front page of the Scottish Government's copy of Operation Yellowhammer planning documents, shows it is a "base scenario".

The "Operation Yellowhammer" worst-case assumptions published on Wednesday (11 September) look like a heavy blow for Prime Minister Boris Johnson who has been pushing for a hard Brexit.

Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said the scenario was a "planning assumption" and would only come true if the government did nothing to offset it.

Asked if he was anxious about a No Deal Brexit, he told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: 'As long as we get satisfactory answers and progress on how the operating model for customs clearance is going to work, and communicate that to the logistics haulage industry, I am pretty confident that we can avoid disruption in Kent'. He refused a separate request to make public the advice of government advisers about the suspension of parliament.

Michael Gove, the minister in charge of coordinating "no-deal" preparations, said then that the document was old and did not reflect current levels of preparedness.

The order to release the Yellowhammer document was one of a series of blows to the government from opposition lawmakers and rebel Conservatives.

Meanwhile, MPs also voted for all internal correspondence and communications between people advising the government related to Brexit to be handed over for scrutiny. The cases go to the Supreme Court for a final ruling next week.

But Scotland's highest civil court ruled on Wednesday that the shutdown was illegal "because it had the objective of stymieing Parliament". He said he had "absolutely not" misled the queen - whose formal approval was needed to suspend Parliament - about his motives.

Britain's parliamentary speaker has warned Prime Minister Boris Johnson not to disobey the law by refusing to ask for a Brexit delay and vowed to thwart any attempt to circumvent legislation.

He has no majority in the Commons and suspended parliament on Monday until October 14 in an apparent bid to thwart opposition to a possible no-deal departure.

A no-deal Brexit could lead to the return of a hard border between the U.K.'s Northern Ireland and European Union member Ireland.

- The analysis indicates that the aim of avoiding a hard border in Northern Ireland may be "unsustainable".

"Virtually all of the assembled evidence belongs to the world of politics, both national and supra-national".

"We call on the United Kingdom government to immediately step up engagement with us on preparations - worryingly we have had less involvement with the Johnson government than under his predecessor".

Johnson says Britain will leave on time, with or without a deal.

Johnson's envoy David Frost has been holding talks in Brussels this week but no breakthrough has been made. "The UK has not proposed any alternatives and anything that has been legally credible and workable", European Parliament president David Sassoli said yesterday.

"All the industries that matter will be ready for a no-deal Brexit", Mr Johnson said.
