We know that recently some senior British civil servants have been warning of shortages of food, fuel and medicines within weeks if the U.K. leaves the European Union next year without a trade deal and that words like Armageddon have been used. Many newspapers are reporting these comments and people are rightly concerned. The simple answer here is that for every negative opinion on Brexit there is a positive one and vice versa. This is the problem with a lack of information. What we know is that the citizens of the EU are intrinsically linked and that where wholesale changes are made then there will always be problems associated with change. That is not to say that solutions cannot be found and the armageddon scenarios avoided. Some concerns have been that under the “severe” scenario, the English Channel ferry port of Dover would “collapse on day one” and supermarkets and hospitals would soon run short of supplies. The Government has been keen to play down these views and the U.K.’s Department for Exiting the European Union rejected the downbeat scenario, saying it was drawing up no-deal plans but was confident “none of this would come to pass.” We will know far more by October of this year as Britain and the EU are aiming to strike an overall Brexit agreement by that time. In the meantime please share your concerns, your questions and your opinions on the BD forum and we will do our best to provide the answers as soon as they become available.
