Security stepped up in UK – on a knife-edge for Brexit crisis and holiday shopping

Special anti-terror police forces were deployed on UK streets as of Monday ready for chaos in event of the Theresa May cabinet falling over the Brexit document she negotiated with the EU, and terrorists taking advantage of the pre-Christmas shopping season. May’s fight to save her cabinet from a parliamentary majority ranged against it, including rebels from her own Conservative party, reaches its decisive moment this week. Britain’s exit from the EU without a negotiated deal would lead to chaos in the flow of imported essentials to the UK, its exports, industries and the financial sector. Shortages could provoke street disturbances in the big cities in the middle of the largest shopping event of the year. The big department stores in London and major cities have given sales staff special instruction for their conduct if faced with terror attacks or crowd disturbances.

    Bullshit The UK does not need any deal with a parasite like the EU,The reality is May is A traitor backed by the EU from the start ,the EU is a weak and desperate imploding entity and the people are about to rebel ,The EUs deal will not make it though Parliament..No deal is the only deal..

      Too late for Brexit as a shield against rivers of Muslims rushing in, in a country with no borders.
      The Founding Fathers of EU were so much blinded by our sweet Allah, makes me laugh my ass.

    In reply to so called “patriot”the Eu is not a parasite.I am not a remain voter and i abstained from voting leave for personal and economic reasons.
    The terrorism (3major attacks since the Brexit vote ,killing over 30 people) did not originate in mainland Europe,they came from the communities inside the U.K. What is the point of closing trade and social links when the terror threat is already established inside our own borders.
    Remember the trojan war and the victory they prematurely celebrated behind the indestructable walls of Troy while the Trojan horse spewed out death and destruction while they slept.
    Yes the insanity of Merkle and her open door policy was a cause of Brexit but as i said but the damage was already done.

    Non of those apposing May have a plan and couldn’t have done better themselves in her shoes. Business leaders aren’t happy with all of it either but they just want to get on with it now as do most people. Teething problems are inevitable but should be ironed out fast and this is where the UK folk should be torturing May for next year.
