      No-deal Brexit expected to throw Britain in chaos

      Mass protests, disrupted cross-Channel trade and chaos threaten Britain in case of a no-deal Brexit, according to a report released by the government last Wednesday. Called “Operation Yellowhammer” and prepared six weeks ago just days after Boris Johnson became prime minister, it forms the basis of government no-deal planning, Reuters reported.

      EC: No-deal Brexit still possible outcome

      With eight weeks to go until the UK's withdrawal from the EU on 31 October and in light of the continued uncertainty and lack of agreement, the Commission reiterated last Wednesday its call to all stakeholders to prepare for a no-deal scenario. The EC stressed in its 6th Brexit preparedness communication that with the overall political situation in the UK a no-deal scenario on 1 November remains a possible, although undesirable, outcome.

      Johnson eyes restricting parliament time before Brexit

      British PM Boris Johnson will try to limit parliaments opportunity to derail his Brexit plans by cutting the amount of time it sits between now and EU exit day on 31 October, news wires reported. In his boldest move yet to take the country out of the EU with or without a divorce deal, Johnson said he would set 14 October for the Queens Speech - the formal state opening of a new session of parliament where he will set out his government’s legislative agenda.

      The EU expects Britain to fulfil all of its financial obligations made during its membership of the bloc even after a no-deal Brexit, a spokeswoman for the European Commission said on Monday.

      Extravagant Brexit doer

      And finally the fate of Brexit is in the right hands. Or better to say in the right mouth and on the right mind. With the ascension of staunch Brexiteer Boris Johnson to the post of British PM, things seem to have come to their places - the one who has strongly advocated for the UK to leave the EU now is supposed to deliver it. With or without a deal. And no later than 31 October. The late-summer and early-autumn show will be interesting, as - with Johnson at the helm - the UK heads for a clash with the EU and a constitutional crisis at home.
