What The "Doomsday Brexit Plan" Document Says Should Frighten Us All

Via TruePublica.org.uk,

This is the first paragraph of The Times article (paywall) regarding Britain’s now famous Doomsday Brexit plan.

Britain would be hit with shortages of medicine, fuel and food within a fortnight if the UK tries to leave the European Union without a deal, according to a Doomsday Brexit scenario drawn up by senior civil servants for David Davis.

The Times confirms that the port of Dover will collapse “on day one” if Britain crashes out of the EU, leading to critical shortages of supplies. This was the middle of three scenarios put forward by senior advisors. A type of best guestimate if you like. You simply do not want to know the outcome of the worst of those three scenarios. Indeed, we have been spared from such details.

The article states that the RAF would have to be deployed to ferry supplies around Britain. And yes, we’re still on the middle scenario here. You would have to medevac medicine into Britain, and at the end of week two we would be running out of petrol as well,” a contributing source said.

The report continues to describe matters such as cross-channel disruption for heavy goods vehicles, which would also be catastrophic. Massive carparks will be required.

A senior official said in the ‘Doomsday’ Brexit plan:

We are entirely dependent on Europe reciprocating our posture that we will do nothing to impede the flow of goods into the UK. If for whatever reason, Europe decides to slow that supply down, then we’re screwed.

Let’s not worry about the fact that French borders are often left in chaos due to the all too familiar strikes that appear almost monthly during holiday season for one reason or another.

Home secretary Sajid Javid makes an unconvincing comment stating he’s ‘confident’ a deal will be done. That’s hardly the type of assurance we need is it?

UK officials emphasised that the June EU summit due on the 28th was heading for a “car crash” because “no progress has been made since March” to devise plans for a long-term deal. If your confidence in Brexit is starting to wane, don’t worry, half the nation are not just anxious but downright fearful – mainly because, neither in or out has given any concreate evidence of likely outcomes. This is probably because Brexit hasn’t been done before – and was designed that way. Deliberately.

One official said “the scenarios are so explosive they have only been shared with a handful of ministers and are locked in a safe.”

At what stage of their hapless fiddling, constant arguing and pitiful attempts to administer the kiss of life to the corpse that Brexit has turned out to be, does a politician officially earn the title of – stupid idiot?

“Just bloody get on with it” shout the Brexiteers, except both they and the UK government still can’t decide what ‘it’ is.

Still, not to worry, we have a ‘special relationship’ with the United States of America. Britain sends about 19 percent of total exports to the USA (forget the 44 percent sent to the EU). Except, we’ve just found out we’re not special anymore. Frankly, we never were and never have been, but now, we have proof. There’s a trade war about to kick off. And we’re going to be in it – but on the side of the EU.

Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States are part of the G7. Except now that little club is already being referred to the G6 + 1, the plus one being the USA. The other six are furious that the USA would accuse them of being a national security threat over such simple matters as metal sales.

Let’s not worry about the fact that China, Russia, India and quarter of Africa are now executing oil trades outside of the USD. Let’s not worry that the rest of the world are now ganging up on isolationist America for attempting to tear down the world order. Just think about that for a moment. We’re on the wrong side – we’re on the losing side, because we’re with America – except now we’re not. And anyway, who would back the entire nation on a man like Trump and a country like America??

Liam Fox, a detestable man who rightly should be banned from managing a corner shop let alone negotiate the future prospects of Britain promised 40 trade deals signed up by next March. How many have signed? Nil, neant, null, and nulo. Not one.

Fox has previously claimed that securing a trade deal with the EU after Brexit would be, and I quote: “the easiest in human history.” He was wrong.

Then we have the Five-Eyes Alliance – the global spying and communications network of the USA, UK, N-Z, Canada and Australia. If anything, this would be something to do with that special relationship, especially as Britain excels in breaking international laws in areas such as illegal surveillance. Except that is falling apart too as N-Z is being threatened with expulsion by none other than America – because it works closely with China on a number of projects that America thinks makes it vulnerable to Chinese influence. What happens when Trump is reminded that one of the worlds largest nuclear power stations is in Britain – currently being built and funded in part by...,ahem...,China.

In the meantime, Britain is being forced into making up fantastical stories about Russians running around the Shires with deadly nerve agents whilst we watch £1billion projects being shelved by banning football club owners who have resided and heavily invested in the country for decades. Britain has gone from farce to tragedy. Just as Thatcher walked away from the free market ideology of extreme neoliberal capitalism and all that it has brought, Cameron walked away from his little ‘miscalculation’ by offering a disaffected electorate a protest vote. The rest of us can’t walk away from a country in crisis – we have little option but to follow our so-called leaders.

The only credible plan they do have and let’s be fair, it was they who put the country in this position in the first place, is called the Doomsday Brexit Plan.

Excellent. At first, you were anxious, then a bit unnerved, but by now, you really should be alarmed. What if the Brexiteers are wrong and the officials and civil servants who created this document are right? What then?

And how did trade take place between the UK and European countries prior to the creation of the EU? The impediments are not economic, they are political and created out of thin air in Brussels... The walking corpses in EU leadership have their heads so far up their own asses, they cannot see that their actions are insane...

The UK is dead.  It's not dying...it's dead. 

Liberals and their liberal immigration policy killed England.  I've been traveling to the UK for 25 years.  I don't recognize it now.

The USA will be next if we don't stop the tide of illegal AND LEGAL immigration.  Shut it down, pause ALL immigration.

A little hate for the brits never did any harm.  Let's cheer up together to the demise of that beast. 

Maybe the ruling elite is afraid of losing their daily supplies of quality children for rape? 

Did they mention the only positive downside with rapefugees leaving back to their shitholes because they would then appear less shitty?

We seriously need to eradicate the threat coming from the underdeveloped Anglo/US mind. What we are seeing today is the same as the events leading to WWI over a hundred years ago. These people can talk all cultured and sophisticated on the outside but their barbarism and primitive nature shows in everything they do. Just the fact that they are not willing to talk to an adversary speaks volumes of the lack of any effect of 2000 years of progress and civilisation has had on their warrior tribe mentality.

Fear porn, indeed.  "...leading to critical shortages of supplies. This was the middle of three scenarios put forward by senior advisors."

So EU mfrs and suppliers have a vested interest in harming....themselves by not continuing to trade to England?  Puhleez.  The only way that will happen is if vengeful bureaucrats in Belgium force the issue.  

The "senior advisors" in England likewise have a vested interest in ginning up angst opposed to Brexit.  Many of their livelihoods depend on the EU's survival.  

Unfortunately for them, the worm (cycle) has turned.  People who only see the trees and not the forest, see only Trump, or Brexit, or EXITaly, or Catalonia as isolated one offs. They're not.  They're  data points in a larger trend reversal that is rejecting globalism and internationalism. 

The rejection may not be "right" (whatever that means), but it IS happening and in my view, irreversible.  It can be the easy (peaceful) way, or the hard way.  Either way, however, time's up.  Choose.

The British consultants I work with here in Houston tell me THEY don't even recognize their homeland anymore.  They say, they used to want to return someday....now, painfully, they don't even really want to go back and visit.   That says a lot.   very sad.   I liked England...even though I had a hard time finding nice looking girls (when I was younger) I still liked the place.

Well I’ve seen my fair of scare mongering during my life but this just about takes the biscuit. The article is based on the Sunday Times last weekend.

Are we expected to believe that European countries are going to sit by and watch their agricultural exports to the UK die on the roads just like they did in 2015 when Russia imposed their counter sanctions on EU agriculture causing billions of Euros of losses?

Note that the Sunday Times includes the following paragraph, my highlight

“A spokesman for the Brexit department confirmed the discussions had taken place, but said that it was “totally false” that the doomsday scenario would unfold: “A significant amount of work and decision-making has gone into our no-deal plans, especially where it relates to ports, and we know that none of this would come to pass.” They went on to say that this would be a case of “reciprocal jeopardy”.

This looks like unnamed civil servants pushingtheir own agenda or Project Fear Mk2 to me.

This was said by a lying, cheating, manipulative spokesman, working on behalf of an equally lying, cheating, manipulative government .

There is a scam that works for the individual based on a weakness in the individual that can be exploited if found - why do you think so many stories are put out.

What a peculiar view of the UK you seem to have.  You appear to come from here but have never met a VAT inspector, been to a port or even had a postman ask you for excise duty.  Of course we have the infrastructure, which we use for the other 170 odd countries we trade with.

Of course we traded with Europe before the EU, and hugely.  I'm guessing you must be a millennial to be this misinformed.  We were the 1st, 2nd or 3rd largest economy in the world during that period, had a huge industrial base and were the pre-eminent financial centre (which we have once again).  Our trade, communications and systems have never been better, and will improve once the EU de-cluttering begins.

This Times article is farcical.  All that will happen is that everything will get slapped with tariffs.  There will be plenty of warning.  There will be plenty of stocking up beforehand and the ports won't be chaotic because there will be almost nothing going through them while a deal is negotiated on a per country basis.  You can bet that Mercedes and BMW will be knocking down the door to do a deal and not lose possibly their most lucrative market.  Who can possibly have such a tenuous grasp of business to think we'll be running out of food?  As though food producers the world over are just going to retire to their sun loungers while the biggest opportunity in decades to displace existing suppliers goes begging.  Whoever wrote this article, and any who believe it, clearly haven't done any business at all since playing "shop" as children.

Yes it did.

Trade has continued by every country that has been labelled 'the sick man of Europe' - and that's almost every European country at some time or another.  

Germany in the 90's 

Italy around 2005

Portugal 2007

Greece 2009

France 2014

Finland 2015

All post-EU and much of it caused by the EU itself.

Maybe the terminally sick man of Europe is the EU

Who ever publicises or promotes these articles simply don't 'get it'.  NONE of the scaremongering has done anything other than increase the resolve of Brexiteers to LEAVE THE EU.

As a propaganda stunt goes this has to be one of the most blatant shots-to-the-foot I've ever seen.

Remainer support - such that it is - is vastly over-reported and, if measured honestly, would be indicative of how LITTLE support there is to stay inside this despotic, corrupt establishment.

Personally, this document sounds like nothing but a scare tactic of Soros and Company to get the lemming population to scream to stay in the EU. As if other countries wouldn't step in to provide those things in a second, because there's money to be made. I'm sure none of those medicines or food could come from the U.S., for example, could they? This is just pure claptrap and if it were locked tight in a vault, I'm sure we wouldn't know all the details on ZH.

If this isn't a meme yet, it soon will be. What a great fucking closing on Brexit by Farage, "I am the turkey that voted for Christmas!" in reference to his claim that most politicians in attendance were only there to collect an E-Union check and did not represent the wishes of their respective nation state constituents to do the same and get them the hell out. Putting his own head on the chopping block. How this bloody well won't turn bloody is the real ?

What pillock wrote this article?

You'd think that there was no world, no existence, beyond the EU. The document has been drawn up by civil servants who have been in thrall to and promoters of the EU project form day one. Run around! Be afraid!

My response, "Fuck-off you treacherous bastards".

Frankly, I see Brexit as an opportunity to revive British entrepreneurialism in it's true, mercantile and manufacturing sense and to shake off the choke hold of the City/banks and Europe on whose altars much of the foundation of our former prosperity has been sacrificed. No surprise they hate it. No surprise most of Britain give or take London (and you're welcome to it) hates them.

We don't need no steenking deal.

This is like asking how the US government funded itself before taxes...

Today the liberal lying media is beside itself saying that "Canada" did not burn down the White House in 1812 because they were a British colony at the time. (Wait a moment, what was that colony called? Hmmm, Upper Canada and  Lower Canada...and a few other names like Rupert's Land) Just more of the bullshit semantics designed at erasing history...

Standard Disclaimer: BTW, the word you are looking for can also be found under the letter "t" in the dictionary.

You are worried about a trade deal with an organization (the EU) that is disintegrating before your very eyes? A club that is dominated by one country (Germany) that is waging economic war on all its neighbors? I don't think there is that much to worry about. Man up and carry on and say NO to German ultimatums delivered by little boys from France.
