A No Deal Brexit would plunge the UK into a catastrophe, with 10% price hikes, a recession and direct rule in Northern Ireland - according to an explosive leaked document. With the country preparing to crash out of the European Union in just 10 days - after MPs again failed to agree a way forward last night - Cabinet Secretary Sir Mark Sedwill has written how leaving without a deal will cause chaos for the police and security services, plunge businesses into trouble and put the Irish peace process at risk. Leaving the EU without any sort of trade deal and relying on what are called World Trade Organisation rules, would also see a 10% spike in food prices, the Mirror reports. The government is said to have been preparing for a no deal scenario but, during the Brexit referendum, the idea was barely mentioned by Brexiteers or Remainers.

LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May piled pressure on rebel lawmakers on Thursday to back her battered EU divorce deal as parliament prepared to vote on seeking a delay to Britain’s departure that could ultimately derail the process. Two weeks before Britain is due to leave the European Union, May is using the threat of a long delay to push Brexit supporters in her Conservative Party finally to back her deal. That vote could come next week, when those lawmakers will have to decide whether to back a deal they feel does not offer a clean break from the EU, or accept that Brexit could be watered down or even thwarted by a lengthy delay.

That deal, struck by May after two-and-a-half years of negotiations with the EU, was defeated heavily in parliament in January and again on Tuesday. … [Read more...] about May piles pressure on British lawmakers to back Brexit deal
