UK to face food, fuel and medicine shortages in a no-deal Brexit

United Kingdom would be facing off steep shortage of foods, medicines and fuels if UK lawmakers decided to leave European Union without a deal, as possibilities of a no-deal Brexit was lurking over the horizon under leadership of Boris Johnson, a hard Brexiteer, who might even meet with a re-election before October 31st Brexit deadline, a Sunday Times show had revealed on Saturday, the 17th of August 2019, citing leaked government documents seen by one of its reporters.

According to Saturday’s (August 17th) Times show, most likely aftershock of a UK divorce with European Union after 46-years of combined efforts would likely to hurt UK economy by jamming ports and a hard border in Ireland.

Besides, citing leaked government documents, the Sunday Times show had revealed that about 85 percent of British cargoes used to pass through the main channel controlled by French customs, which would unlikely to let a British cargo pass in a no-deal Brexit scenario, meanwhile disruptions at multiple ports in Britain could last more than three months.

Aside from that, the UK government strongly believed that a hard border between the Republic of Ireland and the British province of Northern Ireland would likely to yield widespread causalities, the Times said citing leaked government documents.

Meanwhile, labelling the government report a pluperfect assessment of causalities at a no-deal Brexit scenario, the Times reported on Saturday (August 17th), “Compiled this month by the Cabinet Office under the codename Operation Yellowhammer, the dossier offers a rare glimpse into the covert planning being carried out by the government to avert a catastrophic collapse in the nation’s infrastructure.

The file, marked “official-sensitive” — requiring security clearance on a “need to know” basis — is remarkable because it gives the most comprehensive assessment of the UK’s readiness for a no-deal Brexit. ”
