LONDON (Reuters) - The British government removed the word “unlikely” from its official guidance on how to prepare for a no-deal Brexit after the cabinet decided to ramp up preparations for leaving the EU without a deal, Prime Minister Theresa May’s spokesman said.
“It’s a straightforward reflection of the decision that was taken by cabinet to move to a position where we’re implementing our no deal plans in full,” he told reporters.
“It’s still our position that the most likely outcome is to leave the European Union with a deal.”
