Why Amazon Is Warning the U.K. Government About 'Civil Unrest'

The Brexit Secretary said critics were mistaken to think Mrs May would not walk away without a deal if she had to. On Saturday, May said the deal was a "principled and practical Brexit", warning the EU: "The clock is ticking".

Asked whether he was still working on convincing cabinet colleagues, Raab said: "I want to make sure we can persuade everyone - grassroots, voters, parliamentary party and ministers, including in the cabinet - that we've got the best deal and the best plan to get the best deal".

Another contributing author, Professor Erik Millstone, said: "It is vital, in the context of negotiating and enacting Brexit, that the Food Standards Agency, and the United Kingdom government more generally, avoid any decisions, proposals or actions, that could adversely affect food safety standards in the United Kingdom or the reputation of the UK's food supply".

The online shopping giant's contingency planning for a no-deal Brexit, he revealed, includes prep for "civil unrest within two weeks" of the United Kingdom crashing out.

Mr Raab replaced David Davis, who resigned two weeks ago to protest May's "soft" Brexit plan.

Barnier voiced concerns over the UK's suggestion of aligning with European Union goods regulations as this would only apply to goods checked at the border and not to other agri-food rules such as pesticides. All in the hope of mantaining cabinet discipline, selling the Chequers proposals to the North of the country and preparing to peddle her White Paper deal to the individual member states of the EU.

Mr Varadkar was responding to a threat made by British Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab who suggested the United Kingdom could now insist on "conditionality" to its previous agreement to pay off the money it owes Brussels.

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said he told his German counterpart in Berlin on Monday that "when it comes to Brexit there is now a very real risk of a Brexit "no deal" by accident".

Hunt's pro-Brexit predecessor Boris Johnson resigned last week.

In a statement released following the talks, the German foreign ministry said that numerous proposals in Theresa May's Brexit White Paper "raise questions on both sides of the Channel" which would have to be examined by the European Commission.

Dominic Raab has said a deal could be done by October, but making "no deal" preparations such as hiring extra border staff was part of being a "responsible government".

Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn has called for a "serious stepping-up" of talks to avoid Britain leaving the European Union without a deal.

"There has to be a serious stepping-up of negotiations to reach an agreement on customs and on trade", he said.
