Theresa May wants us all to start prepping for a ‘no-deal’ Brexit
Apparently the 'have your cake and eat it too' policy isn't going down so well in Brussels
Okay, it's in the news every week anyway – but now we've got seventy Brexit announcements to be released in weekly 'bundles' to look forward to, as well as whatever other spontaneous Brexit news comes up.
What it means: The government is beginning to seriously prepare for a 'no-deal' Brexit – where we have no special arrangements with the EU whatsoever, and just trade like any other country. They think we should be prepping too, the Times reports.
Businesses who only trade with the EU are being told to start prepping what customs declarations could look like. The UK Health Alliance is talking about stockpiling medicines in case a no-deal situation cuts off supplies temporarily. People are going to be asked to start thinking about alternative health insurance agreements if they go abroad as they won't be covered by the EU scheme anymore.
