Operation Yellowhammer: The Consequences of a No Deal Brexit

Published on September 12, 2019

What is Operation Yellowhammer? You could be mistaken for thinking of the bird, but Operation Yellowhammer is the government's own assessment of the impact of a No Deal Brexit. Let us eggsplain... 

On Wednesday evening, the government partially released Operation Yellowhammer, a report that outlines the possible consequences of the UK leaving without a deal. According to the government's own assessment, a No Deal Brexit will lead to a rise in food prices, riots in the streets, and medicine shortages.

This is not project fear. It is abundantly clear that a No Deal Brexit will negatively affect the lives of thousands of British citizens. Yet Boris Johnson insists on hurling us towards a No Deal crash-out, regardless of the consequences. Even though the government hasn't released the full details, it’s clear that it would take years to heal from this self- inflicted wound.

Bird or Document?

Now that we know so much more about what a Boris Johnson Brexit would mean for Britain, the case for a People's Vote has never been stronger - but we must continue to mobilise. Sign up to march on 19th October, and get involved with your local European Movement group today - don't forget to tell your friends!

It is not over yet. We will keep fighting, but we need your help.

No Deal is not democracy
