No-deal Brexit preparations in full swing

There’s just under 100 days to go until the U.K. leaves the European Union (EU) and despite a Brexit deal being on the table, both sides are stepping up preparations for a ‘no-deal’ divorce.

After months of fraught negotiations, the U.K. and EU struck a Brexit deal (or “withdrawal agreement”) last month; the trouble is, no one in the U.K. parliament likes it that much.

With British politicians set to vote in mid-January on whether to approve or reject the Brexit deal, the odds are stacked against it.
