London, Great Britain—The UK police are planning for civil unrests in the event there isn’t a deal on Brexit.
A leaked police document predicts that a no-deal on Brexit would create food, medical, and power shortages in Britain. The document prepared by the National Police Coordination Centre (NPCC) concludes that such an event would most probably trigger civil disorder. To counter such a grim scenario, the document states that law enforcement officers would not be allowed to take leave close to the date of withdrawal.
According to the current plan of British Prime Minister Theresa May, the UK is set to depart from the European Union (EU) this upcoming March.
“I’m glad the police and other experts are looking into this and thinking what might happen in a no-deal scenario,” said Sajid Javid, the British Home Secretary.
