WASHINGTON POST: Theresa May just warned of a ‘no-deal Brexit.’ Here are some of the doomsday scenarios.

Press/Media: Expert comment

Release date: 17/9/2018

Description

If Britain were to exit with no deal in place, it would “quite likely to be the worst political, economic, and social crisis for a generation — maybe longer,” said Rob Ford, a professor of politics at the University of Manchester.

One of the problems, he said, is the false belief that no deal would allow the status quo to simply continue.

“But it fundamentally doesn’t mean that in this situation,” Ford said. “No deal means you burn the whole house down, and I don’t think awareness of that is anywhere near high enough.”
