Government edits ‘no deal’ Brexit documents to ramp up preparations



The government is editing its own “no deal” documents to remove the word “unlikely” in relation to Britain falling out of the EU without a agreement.

Sky News understands that the notices known as “technical papers” were quietly changed over the last 24 hours, as ministers activated full planning for the UK to leave the EU without a deal.

A government spokesperson confirmed the move, saying the language had been “updated” after the cabinet decision on Wednesday.

They added: “We fully expect to get a deal and believe that is the most likely outcome – that is what we are focused on delivering.”
