UK's Johnson to visit European capitals seeking Brexit breakthrough

UK's Johnson to visit European capitals seeking Brexit breakthrough UK's Johnson to visit European capitals seeking Brexit breakthrough

Britain's Cabinet Office didn't return a message seeking comment on the documents, but Michael Gove, the British minister in charge of no-deal preparations, insisted that the files represented a "worst case scenario". The government of Gibraltar also claimed that predictions of queues of up to four hours at the border with Spain were "out of date" and based on "planning for worst-case scenarios".

"Compiled this month by the Cabinet Office under the code name Operation Yellow hammer, the dossier offers a rare glimpse into the covert planning being carried out by the government to avert a catastrophic collapse in the nation's infrastructure", the report in the Times read.

A government source told the Sunday Times: "This is not Project Fear - this is the most realistic assessment of what the public face with no deal".

Asked about the documents by Sky News, Britain's energy minister said, per Reuters: "I think there's a lot of scaremongering around", but added, "We've got to prepare for no deal. It has been deliberately leaked by a former minister in an attempt to influence discussions with European Union leaders", a source told the paper.

"The consequences of a no-deal Brexit will result in a hard border which threatens our hard won peace and undermines the political and economic progress of the past 21 years enjoyed across the whole island", she said.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said he is ready to leave the European Union regardless of whether he is able to renegotiate the Brexit deal struck with Brussels by his predecessor, Theresa May.

The EU struck a withdrawal agreement with Johnson's predecessor, Theresa May, but it was rejected three times by Britain's parliament.

It comes as Boris Johnson will tell French and German leaders that there must be a new Brexit deal when he meets them next week.

Though his move was largely procedural, in line with previously approved laws, Barclay said in a statement: "This is a clear signal to the people of this country that there is no turning back (from Brexit)".

The prime minister is coming under pressure from politicians across the political spectrum to prevent a disorderly departure, with opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn vowing to bring down Johnson's government in early September to delay Brexit.

European leaders have repeatedly rejected reopening an accord struck with May a year ago but then rejected by British lawmakers on three occasions, despite Johnson's threats that the country will leave then without an agreement.

The EU would be to blame if the United Kingdom left without a deal, the South Wales Central AM said.
