No-deal Brexit may stall unprepared British drivers, Government warns

UK will still have to pay Brussels in a no-deal Brexit says Philip Hammond

The Musicians' Union is the latest organisation to formally come out in favour of a referendum on the final Brexit deal negotiated (or not) by the United Kingdom government.

No-deal frenzy in the media was also fuel by a "worse case scenario" warning from Mark Carney, governor of the Bank of England.

He added: "We can mitigate by taking a "continuity" approach, recognizing certain EU-approved goods for import into the UK".

The UK Government has issued technical notices for telecoms companies and broadcasters to prepare for the UK leaving European Union without a deal.

But the British government said the largest mobile operators, covering 85 per cent of customers, had agreed not to reintroduce the charges in the event of no deal.

A document released by the Department for Transport (DfT) states that your driving licence could "no longer be valid by itself when driving in the EU" and that an International Driving Permit (IDP) might be required at all times.

Raab has said that the no-deal plans were "not something we want to have to implement".

"Unhelpfully though unsurprisingly, the paper avoids reference to any role for historic or future Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU) jurisprudence in terms of interpreting United Kingdom competition law in the future, other than stating that the "CMA and United Kingdom courts will no longer be bound to follow future CJEU case law", he said.

Regarding the EU Earth observation programme Copernicus, the papers said that in a no-deal scenario, the United Kingdom will no longer be able to participate in it or have a role in how it is run.

However, a spokesperson for the Department for Transport commented that United Kingdom commitments to EVs are not dependent on the membership of the European Union and that official figures show that consumer demand for low-emission vehicles is increasing month on month.

Ever since the shock 2016 Brexit vote, major companies have been planning for Brexit, but chief executives say the scale of disruption from a disorderly Brexit is such that it is hard to prepare for. Moody's said today: "The immediate impact of a no-deal Brexit would likely be seen first in a sharp fall in the value of the British pound, as was also evident after the 2016 UK-wide referendum on whether to remain in or leave the EU".
