Nytt

Offisielle tjenestepersoner på druen la igjen en bunke sider med tittelen ‘Core Brexit Brief’ på puben The Feathers i Westminster. Puben er et populært vannhull for politiske rådgivere og offentlige ansatte i London. Et vitne forteller til avisen Daily Mail:

 ‘A group of them were drinking heavily all of Monday evening and they just left the documents on a table at the end of the night.’

Sections inside the script, pictured, included ‘EU processes’ and ‘Citizens’ rights’. It also suggested answers for the Prime Minister to questions he might be asked about Brexit

Dokumentet gir en god innsikt i forberedelsene til en no-deal Brexit 31. oktober. Hele rapporten kan du lese her. Det er 74 dager igjen til Brexit. Britene forventer seg ikke noen god behandling av EU etter Brexit. I dokumentet står det at flere av medlemslandene vil etter press fra EU-ledelsen være uvillige til å engasjere seg i å finne løsninger.

The UK reverts fully to “third country” status. The relationship between the UK and the European Union as a whole is unsympathetic, with many member states (under pressure from the European Commission) unwilling to engage bilaterally and implementing protections unilaterally, though some member states may be more understanding.

The Times skriver at dokumentene er merket som sensitive og at det er krav om sikkerhetsklarering for å få innsyn:

The file, marked “official-sensitive” — requiring security clearance on a “need to know” basis — is remarkable because it gives the most comprehensive assessment of the UK’s readiness for a no-deal Brexit.

Det vil bli mangel på fersk mat, medisiner og drivstoff. Det vil bli kaos i havnene. Det må innføres streng grensekontroll mot Irland. Så mange som opptil 85 prosent av alle lastebiler er ikke klare for en ny prosess ved grensen til Frankrike, noe som innebærer lange køer i havnene i opptil tre måneder før det går seg til. Videre forventes det køer ved flyplassene, Eurotunnel og fergeovergangen til Frankrike fra Dover. Det forventes protester både i Nord-Irland og ellers på grunn av prisstigninger, tap av arbeidsplasser og generell uro.

Detaljene fra dokumentet:

● The government expects the return of a hard border in Ireland as current plans to avoid widespread checks will prove “unsustainable”; this may spark protests, road blockages and “direct action”

● Logjams caused by months of border delays could “affect fuel distribution”, potentially disrupting the fuel supply in London and the southeast of England

● Up to 85% of lorries using the main Channel crossings “may not be ready” for French customs and could face delays of up to 2 1/2 days

● Significant disruption at ports will last up to three months before the flow of traffic “improves” to 50-70% of the current rate

● Petrol import tariffs, which the government has set at 0%, will “inadvertently” lead to the closure of two oil refineries, 2,000 job losses, widespread strike action and disruptions to fuel availability

● Passenger delays at EU airports, St Pancras, Eurotunnel and Dover

● Medical supplies will “be vulnerable to severe extended delays” as three-quarters of the UK’s medicines enter the country via the main Channel crossings

● The availability of fresh food will be reduced and prices will rise. This could hit “vulnerable groups”

● Potential clashes between UK and European Economic Area fishing vessels amid predictions that 282 ships will sail in British waters illegally on Brexit day

● Protests across the UK, which may “require significant amounts of police resource[s]”

● Rising costs will hit social care, with “smaller providers impacted within 2-3 months and larger providers 4-6 months after exit”

● Gibraltar will face delays of more than four hours at the border with Spain “for at least a few months”, which are likely to “adversely impact” its economy
