ACCORDING to both British and European law a hard Brexit will happen in 54 days' time unless something is agreed and ratified before then.

The immediate economic threat of a no-deal scenario, allied to the wider and unavoidable political, social and cultural damage which comes with any Brexit, makes this a very grave moment.

Businesses and communities are telling us of a rising anxiety which is rapidly becoming a fear of what will happen at the end of next month. It is a failure of all involved that we are now at a minute to midnight with no ratified solution and mounting evidence of incomplete preparations.
