  1. Not worst case. All the journalists who leaked the report say it’s identical other than ‘BASE CASE’ being changed to ‘WORST CASE’. A so called Operation Black Swan is supposedly the worst case.

  2. “There will be no downside to Brexit, only a considerable upside.

    David Davis brushes off Brexit retaliation fears (10 October 2016)”

  3. I wonder why UK’s moronic self-destructive impulse parallels the US moronic self-destructive impulse (election of Trumpy).

  4. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://in.reuters.com/article/britain-eu-worst-case/uks-worst-case-no-deal-brexit-plan-warns-of-food-shortages-public-disorder-idINKCN1VW2QK) reduced by 78%. (I’m a bot)

    > LONDON – The British government's plans for a no-deal Brexit warn of severe disruption to cross-Channel routes, affecting the supply of medicines and certain types of fresh foods, and say that protests and counter-protests will take place across the country, accompanied by a possible rise in public disorder.

    > The document, which looks at the worst that could happen if Britain leaves the European Union on Oct. 31 without a deal, said public and business readiness for such an outcome would likely be low, in part because of continued political confusion in the run-up to Brexit day.

    > The opposition Labour Party said the document confirmed the severe risks of a no-deal Brexit.
