The government’s own No Deal assessments are apocalyptic – 13 biblical reactions

There’s been no shortage of predictions for how a no-deal Brexit will affect the country, which is ironic, given that they’ve all come to the conclusion that there will be, well, shortages …of loads of things. At the weekend, a report on that scenario – Yellowhammer – was leaked to The Sunday Times, and it reads like the foretelling of the Apocalypse.

Here’s how the news appeared on Twitter.

MPs rushed to describe the threatened shortages and rioting as either a highly unlikely worst-case scenario or, as Kwasi Kwarteng insisted, Project Fear.

Twitter came out in force to have its say on the leak, and the predicted chaos.
