No-deal Brexit could lead to 'drug and food shortages, protests'

The UK Government also believes a hard border between the British province of Northern Ireland and the Republic will be likely as current plans to avoid widespread checks will prove unsustainable.

Secret British government documents have warned of serious disruptions across the country in the event that the United Kingdom leaves the European Union without a trade deal on October 31, according to a report.

"Yellowhammer is a worst-case scenario - [very] significant steps have been taken in the last three weeks to accelerate Brexit planning", Gove wrote on Twitter, seemingly contradicting the counterclaims made by other British officials.

The government warned this may lead to protests, road blockages and "direct action".

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said he will lead his country out of the European Union on October 31 without a deal if the European Union refuses to negotiate a new divorce agreement.

However, Corbyn is lacking the support necessary, with Liberal Democrats leader Jo Swinson suggesting longer-serving MPs such as Kenneth Clarke or Harriet Harman could lead a potential government of national unity in order to block a no-deal Brexit. The cost of social care is also expected to rise.

"This out of date reporting by The Sunday Times sets out what we ourselves had identified as our main concerns and how we resolve matters", Mr Picardo added. Asked about the Yellowhammer documents, energy minister Kwasi Kwarteng told Sky News: "I think there's a lot of scaremongering around, and a lot of people are playing into "Project Fear".

European leaders have repeatedly rejected reopening an accord agreed by May past year but then rejected by British lawmakers on three occasions, despite Johnson's threats that the country will leave then without an agreement.

Johnson will travel to Berlin on Wednesday for talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and on to Paris on Thursday for discussions with French President Emmanuel Macron, Downing Street confirmed on Sunday, amid growing fears of a no-deal Brexit in two and a half months.

"Our country is on the brink of an economic crisis, as we career towards a no-deal Brexit which will have an immediate effect on food and medical supplies, damage our economy, jobs, the public finances, public services, universities and long-term economic security".

Boris Johnson has become Prime Minister without any popular mandate.

A disorderly divorce, they say, would hurt global growth, send shockwaves through financial markets and weaken London's claim to be the world's preeminent financial centre.

This could result in shortages of fuel, food and medicine, the documents show.

He said: "The EU are our closest neighbours and whatever happens we want a strong relationship after we leave". "Crown dependencies may be affected by supply chain disruption".
