The issues in the UK are magnified by the embattled British Prime Minister Boris Johnson as he suffered a setback when a Cabinet minister resigned, saying the she believed that the PM was not sincere in getting a Brexit deal done with the European Union. Work and Pensions Secretary Amber Ruddying said that she, according to an article on the ABC News website attributed to Jill Lawless, Associated Press, claiming that “I no longer believe leaving with a deal is the government’s main objective.”
Rudd also verbally attacked Johnson for the expulsion of conservative lawmakers who oppose his Brexit plans. Johnson now says that Britain must leave the EU as scheduled on October 31 even if there is no deal with the leadership in Brussels – the EU officials. Johnson saw his brother quit this week, Mr Jo Johnson, saying that he was town between family loyalty and love of country, so leaving was the answer. Most economists are now saying that a no-deal Brexit would damage the economy as trade would shrink and the likely outcome would be a deep recession.
