What no-deal Brexit means, how it might happen, and how it might affect daily life in the UK

Here is everything you need to know about a no-deal Brexit

Boris Johnson has said there is a “strong possibility” that the UK will reach no trade deal with the EU. The Prime Minister addressed the issue on Dec 10 after negotiations with the president of the EU Commission failed to reach an agreement.

Mr Johnson asked the public to prepare for change from Jan 1, indicating the strong possibility of an “Australian-style” relationship with the EU from next year. 

It comes amid news that Mr Johnson’s attempts to negotiate directly with Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron have been rebuffed three times in a week, prompting him to warn a no-deal outcome to Brexit talks is now “very, very likely”.

Though the Prime Minister instructed negotiators to come to a decision on Dec 13, Dominic Raab told BBC News he “can’t rule out” more negotiations, after the Prime Minister failed to bridge “very large gaps” in a meeting with the European Commission president on Dec 9.
