Bombshell no deal warning

Britain’s highest-ranking civil servant has issued a doomsday analysis of how the country would be affected by a No Deal Brexit, as MPs yet again failed to break the deadlock last night.   


The House of Commons rejected all four alternative Brexit plans in another series of votes last night, leaving Britain with no clear plan just 10 days before a possible cliff-edge exit.   


MPs rejected a customs union and a Norway-style agreement, dealing a blow to Remainer hopes of a soft Brexit, and also voted against a 
second referendum.   


The customs union plan proposed by longstanding Tory Europhile Kenneth Clarke was closest to victory - losing by just three votes, 276 to 273.   
But MPs have now rejected 12 ‘indicative vote’ motions and approved none, after trouncing Theresa May’s withdrawal agreement three times.   


Moments after last night’s results emerged, Tory MP Nick Boles dramatically announced he was leaving the party, slamming his former colleagues for their failure to find a compromise.   


Sir Mark’s bombshell letter to ministers, extracts of which have been leaked to the Daily Mail, comes ahead of a five-hour Cabinet showdown today.   


Theresa May has summoned her Cabinet for a marathon five-hour meeting in No 10 today to thrash out whether to switch to a soft Brexit, leave without a deal next week or trigger a general election or second referendum.
