ITV Report 9 April 2019 at 12:14pm At 11pm on Friday, the UK will leave the EU without a deal unless leaders meeting this week in Brussels grant a further extension to the Article 50 withdrawal process. Theresa May will be making stops in Berlin and Paris on Tuesday for last-minute talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron. The Cooper-Letwin Bill means the prime minister will seek an extension to Article 50 with the aim of avoiding a no-deal Brexit - and that's what she will be trying to agree with EU leaders. But what happens if no extension is agreed? What is a no-deal Brexit? A no-deal break means Britain would immediately cease to be an EU member state and the 585-page Withdrawal Agreement would not apply. That would mean the planned transition period to the end of 2020 – intended to allow firms to carry on trading with the EU under the existing rules while they adapt to the new arrangements – would not kick in. It would … [Read more...] about Brexit: What happens if we leave without a deal?

Another agonising defeat for Theresa May last night takes the UK one step closer to leaving the EU with a No Deal Brexit on 29 March 2019. With the Brexit Deal agreed in November 2018 now voted down twice by the House of Commons, it is looking more likely that an agreement won't be reached. MPs voted the deal down for the first time in January by 230 votes, then again on March 12th by 149 votes. A further vote takes place today on whether to avoid a No Deal Brexit with MPs widely expected to block it. But no deal Brexit still looks to be the default option and plans have long since been put into action , costing more than £4billion, in case it happens. The government published 106 "technical notices" outlining the practical effects of No Deal - from driving licences to cats. And it unveiled new tariffs that would slap £1,500 on the cost of a family car from the EU - but leave 87% of goods imports, including steel, tariff free. This could threaten struggling UK industries … [Read more...] about How will No Deal Brexit affect you? 21 changes if UK leaves EU without agreement
Hundreds of jobs are expected to go at Nissan, trade deals worth billions could be axed, and experts are warning the North East will be the worst hit region. And, a No Deal Brexit is becoming a greater reality as the UK prepares to leave the European Union on March 29. When the UK leaves, forecasters are warning the North East's economy could shrink by 6.5% over the next 15 years - and up to 11% in the event of 'no-deal' exit. If there's no deal, 70 international trade deals will be gone , which includes Turkey where the North East exports food worth £480 million to each year, and Norway, which £180m of goods are exported to each year. Nissan announced it would be moving production of its X-Trail model to Japan, saying it was a business decision but also that the UK's unknown relationship with the EU was proving a hindrance. The UK and EU did reach a Brexit deal, but it was voted down in the House of Commons. Downing Street announced ministers were "ramping up" plans … [Read more...] about 21 ways you’ll be affected if UK leaves EU with no deal

THE threat of No Deal Brexit looms over Westminster as Theresa May struggles to get a deal through parliament with just weeks to go. But what does it mean if Britain leaves the European Union without a deal? Here's what you need to know. What is a No Deal Brexit? A No Deal departure from the European Union means leaving without formal arrangements for the future relationship or any transition period. Currently Britain's trade, customs and immigration rules are tied up with the single market and a host of EU regulatory bodies. Ministers are seeking a legal deal to replace these with looser arrangements so we are outside the single market and customs union but keeping close ties so cross-border trade is easy. Negotiations under Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty led to the withdrawal agreement in November - but MPs rejected it in January. Britain's Brexit negotiators head to Brussels on February 20 with fresh plans to fix the hated Irish border backstop. Eurocrats have privately … [Read more...] about What is a No Deal Brexit, when could a deal with Brussels be agreed and what happens if Britain leaves the EU without a deal?
