David Gauke Suggests He Would Quit Cabinet Over No Deal Brexit

Civil servants have warned that food availability and diet will be affected in the event of a no deal Brexit - an eventuality that the government has stopped referring to as unlikely.

After a tumultuous week in which she survived a confidence vote and sought last-minute changes to a Brexit agreement reached with Brussels last month, May faces deadlock over her deal in the British parliament.

A spokeswoman for Britain's Brexit department said the language had been updated after the government started to step up its plans for a no-deal exit.

European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker said ahead of meeting May that he was "surprised" at being asked for more talks since EU leaders had given their approval to the deal at an extraordinary summit on November 25.

The leaders held out little hope of offering any legal assurances that would help May sell the 585-page deal to unenthusiastic British lawmakers.

In the temporary customs union, Britain would be unable to influence EU laws, regulations and product standards it would have to observe.

"The deal we have achieved is the best deal possible, it's the only deal possible", he told the European Parliament in Strasbourg.

"Businesses have been watching in horror as politicians have focused on factional disputes rather than practical steps that business needs", said Britain's Chambers of Commerce in a statement along with four other major employer groups.

The European Commission's measures announced Wednesday are created to limit disruption in several sectors, including finance, transport and data protection.

A new addition to this document mentions that a "significant programme of work" has been launched to prepare for a no deal divorce. However, the effects of global agreements with Switzerland will continue for the duration of the implementation period.

The European Union marked 100 days until Brexit on Wednesday by triggering an action plan to ensure planes can still fly and money can still flow between Britain and the bloc in the increasingly likely event that the United Kingdom leaves the EU without a divorce deal.

British visitors to the European Union will also be exempt from needing visas for short trips, with visits for longer than 90 days needing residency permits or visas.

Cabinet members Amber Rudd and Andrea Leadsom have set out their alternative Brexit options as the Prime Minister continues to struggle to make her case for her Brexit deal.

Eurosceptic MPs in May's Conservative party have also repeated calls for her to be replaced, with one warning it was time to "govern or quit".

The SNP and Labour believe Mrs May is seeking to "run down the clock", managing parliamentary business in such a way that MPs are confronted by backing her deal or facing the dreaded no-deal scenario because of a lack of Commons time.
