A May Day Royale…
The Theresa May government in London plans to evacuate Queen Elizabeth II and other members of the Royal Family from Buckingham Palace, if riots break out after no-deal Brexit!
A senior British official recently confirmed the news, saying that it is an old plan. The scheme was originally intended to be put into action if there was a nuclear attack from the erstwhile Soviet Union, stressed the official. “These emergency evacuation plans have been in existence since the Cold War, but have now been repurposed in the event of civil disorder following a no-deal Brexit,” the official was heard telling the press. Britain is going through a political crisis because of Brexit and the government has decided to take some precautionary actions, if the situation deteriorates, insisted the official.
Buckingham Palace’s 775 rooms include 78 bathrooms, 92 offices, 52 royal and guest bedrooms and 188 staff bedrooms
Dai Davies – a former police officer who was in charge of Royal protection – said that it would be crucial to move Queen Elizabeth out of London in case of any ensuing emergency. “If there were problems in London, clearly you would remove the Royal Family away from those key sites,” Davies told a British daily.
Earlier, Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg urged the government not to panic, stating that senior Royals had remained in the Palace during the war. However, the British Army is not interested in Rees-Mogg’s advice as it has started stock-piling emergency supplies on its bases around the world. A top Defence Ministry spokesperson said that the government had asked the Armed Forces to be prepared for a range of scenarios when the UK would leave the European Union (EU).

“We are working closely with industry suppliers and across government to ensure that essential defence tasks would not be affected by a no-deal Brexit,” said the spokesperson.
As Britain is all set to leave the 28-member bloc on March 29, Prime Minister May is taking all the necessary steps to ensure a smooth exit. However, she knows that it will be a difficult task. Last month, the British parliamentarians rejected the PM’s Brexit proposal. While 202 MPs had backed the PM’s proposal, 432 MPs had rejected the same. Interestingly, some members of the Conservative Party and partner of the ruling coalition DUP voted against the PM’s proposal. It’s the biggest defeat of the government, as far as the British parliamentarian history is concerned! The next day, the government managed to win a no confidence motion and the PM (somehow) saved her position.
After surviving the no confidence motion, Prime Minister May started holding talks with the leaders of various political parties. However, leader of the Opposition Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn claimed that the PM made some political moves and didn’t take any step for the betterment of the British people!
Meanwhile, the business organisations are of the opinion that trade and commerce will feel the heat, if Britain takes time to leave the Union. They argue that the imported items from the EU could undergo fresh customs check after the implementation of Brexit deal. And it could lead to shortages of medicines and food items!
