No-deal Brexit would be ‘disastrous’ – UK minister

Britain’s business minister on Thursday warned that the prospect of crashing out of the European Union without an agreement would be “disastrous” for the country, contradicting official government policy.

A no-deal Brexit, which the government has not ruled out, would be “a disastrous situation in which we move to the most rudimentary terms of trade with our closest partners,” Greg Clark told BBC radio.
