Sam Lowe, a senior Brexit research fellow at the Centre for European Reform think-tank, said that while the “full consequences of no-deal will take a while to settle in”, he predicted that “issues will begin to emerge from day one”. He added: “Holding a general election days after seems remarkably reckless in that the management of no-deal will require a focused government committed to the task at hand, with ministers ready to take decisions, not half the cabinet on a battle bus in Devon and the civil service constrained by purdah.”
