posted by Hannity Staff - 3.22.19

The British military is rapidly preparing for a ‘No Deal’ Brexit in the coming days; confirming they’re ready to deploy over 3,500 troops to the streets of the United Kingdom should the government fail to reach an agreement with the European Union.

According to Sky News, Operation Redfold would direct thousands of military personnel across the UK to ease any “disruptions” caused by the country’s decision to withdraw from the EU; handing out food, fuel, medical supplies, and more.

“Control of overall planning for the impact of the UK leaving the European Union without a withdrawal agreement next week shifts from the Cabinet Office to the government’s emergency committee Cobra,” reports Sky.

“The armed forces have activated a team in a nuclear-proof bunker under the Ministry of Defence as the government prepares next Monday to enter ‘very high readiness mode’ for a no-deal Brexit,” adds the article.
