UK Confident Brexit Not to Bring Armageddon - May's Spokesman

According to the spokesman of British Prime Minister Theresa May, the country's government is confident that there will be no Armageddon, following Brexit.

"A significant amount of work and decision-making has gone into our no deal plans, especially as it relates to ports, and we know that none of this would happen," the spokesman said.

A source said The Sunday Times the day before, citing a government study that Britain could be hit with food and medicine shortages within two weeks after leaving the European Union if a Brexit deal isn't agreed upon.
