Six months of traffic jams, and chartered aircraft to supply medication. This, according to the latest warning from ministers, is what the UK can expect under a no-deal Brexit. BBC reports the announcement comes amid increasing efforts by Theresa May’s allies to sell the prime minister’s vision of Brexit before a Commons vote on Tuesday. On the medicine front, the health secretary has called for a six-month stockpile as a backstop should the deal be defeated in Parliament. And on the road transport front, there have been warnings that vehicles may be forced to endure reduced access and delays after the UK’s departure on 29 March until the end of September. Previously, the government had prtedicted a no-deal Brexit would result in just six weeks of congestion.
