Robert Hannigan, former director of Britain's GCHQ intelligence agency, said Wednesday that a hard border would lead to a rise in smuggling, increase tensions between Irish nationalists and pro-British unionists and "fray around the edges of the peace process".

"There is a danger that becomes self-fulfilling".

Although this is the "worst case scenario" in case of no final agreement on the divorce settlement from Europe, with just months to go and a distance to reach, it's looking like a "no deal" is increasingly likely. Although the program's data is free and open, the United Kingdom government says that users will no longer have high-bandwidth access to data from the satellites and additional data, but admits that it's "seeking to clarify" the terms.

Brexit-supporting lawmakers in Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservative Party publicly pledged support for her on Wednesday after media reports of a plot to oust her by rebels unhappy with her proposals for exiting the EU.

The RAC lauded the government's decision to publish guidance for a no-deal Brexit, but said it still wanted to see a deal that provided maximum convenience for motorists.

Conversely, people holding European Union driving licences would still be allowed to drive in the United Kingdom without requiring any additional paperwork.

"The MU has been anti-Brexit since the referendum was announced as we are deeply concerned about how our members' livelihoods will be affected", says the union's General Secretary Horace Trubridge.

"The clock is ticking, so certain measures have to be taken now, to make sure they can be put in place by March next year", Mr Mundell said. There were warnings of extra paperwork at borders and extra credit card charges for Britons visiting the EU.

The CBI said the notices also showed the extent of disruption consumers can expect if "ideology wins over evidence".

Director general Carolyn Fairbairn said: "Efforts on all sides should be geared towards securing the withdrawal agreement to protect the transition period".

"Businesses now face the frustration of yet another wait for further answers", BCC Director General Adam Marshall said.

"It's not a threat and it's not an ultimatum, it's a statement of fact", he said.

A failure of that plan, and a subsequent departure without an agreement, would leave producers facing heavy tariffs, they added.
