UK Businesses Should be Better Prepared for No-Deal Brexit Scenario

UK Businesses Should be Better Prepared for No-Deal Brexit Scenario

Despite the disappointing results the opposition has stated that they will continue to fight against a no deal Brexit on all fronts and that they will not give up.

The Labour MP backed her party's efforts to take control of the parliamentary agenda, allowing it to table legislation to thwart the United Kingdom leaving without any agreement on the October 31 deadline.

Mr. Starmer said defeated June 12 motion would have ensured that "If the next Prime Minister is foolish enough to try to pursue a no deal Brexit then Parliament would have the means to prevent that".

Johnson has said Britain should be prepared to leave the European Union without a deal on October 31 and that withholding the almost 50 billion euros ($56 billion) that May a year ago agreed to pay the European Union could help Britain get a better deal.

Fairbairn also warned that a no-deal Brexit was not just about "short-term disruption", saying that there has been too much focus on "empty shelves and poor availability of lettuces".

At leaked note from the United Kingdom cabinet shows that London is not ready for a no-deal by the end of October. Labour stands ready to use whatever mechanism it can to protect jobs, the economy and communities from the disastrous consequences of a no deal Brexit.

He added: "I voted against the Labour motion today because it was an attempt to take control of the order paper on a blank check".

Prior to the vote, a debate was held by the shadow Brexit Secretary Keir Starmer in the House of Commons who urged his colleagues to back the cross-party motion that would stop the new prime minister from suspending parliament and enacting a no-deal Brexit.

"I do not think we will end up with any such thing, but it is only responsible to prepare vigorously and seriously for no deal".

Prime ministerial candidates have given their opinions on how they would handle the UK's exit from the European Union and Boris Johnson, a rather controversial candidate, has stated that he is not aiming for a no deal outcome during the launch of his campaign. "No-deal must be prevented by government and parliament".

The procedure is the same as one used by opposition MPs to block a no deal Brexit before the 29 March deadline. The leading contender is Boris Johnson.

Sajid Javid, the last of the 10 candidates to launch his campaign ahead of Thursday's first round of voting, dismissed Mr Johnson as "yesterday's news", saying the party needed to show it had changed.
