SBP editorial: Little time to avert a very British disaster
Our government has been hoping all along for a soft Brexit. Its central case scenario is for a transition period of two years or more after Britain leaves the EU on March 29. Then it expects to see customs and regulatory checks between Dublin and London – but not on the border. There has also been planning for a no-deal Brexit, which is just as well: British MPs are expected to reject the draft withdrawal treaty when they vote on it this Tuesday in the House of Commons.
