on this No Deal “doomsday scenario”..

In March I did 2 #brexitforensics stories - one re unusual gagging clauses injected into consultations with business, & 2. “throw open the borders” plan for No Deal Brexit, referred to in memo leaked to S. Times today
reports of this memo confirm my story then, which was widely followed up in press, and in Commons at the time - that UK wont enforce customs, livestock, phyto sanitary and other checks if there’s No Deal, because it can’t. Hopes that EU reciprocates:
... But fairly evident now EU will enforce its customs laws duties, checks and regulations, if that was ever in doubt. In any event, it is not within our power, or any UK politician to make guarantees over what EU27 will do... so trying to work out consequences seems v necessary
... so you may ask, why you havent heard more about this if it was such a serious risk of major disruption... well this is where the story about the Brexit business gagging clauses come in.. they are very real, I have one in my possession:…
Still, off record, our #brexitforensics reports established that, quietly,
*nuclear companies activated plans to reposition nuclear materials as contingency against No Deal
*pharma cos stockpiling drugs on diff sides of post Brexit borders
* auto companies moving supply chains
& eg... This is a text I got off a director of one of the most important border trade logistics providers last month...
... anyway, if the response to this research is “Project Fear” I look forward to your volunteering for service on M20, at Dover, Channel Tunnel and Holyhead on April 1st 2019...It all hinges on a judgement that a no checks No Deal will be reciprocated by EU, based on no evidence.
