This sounds like needless scaremongering to me. What next... a false flag "terrorist" event to scare us all into wanting to remain in the EU?

I don't care if we are in the EU or out. In either case the poor will always be screwed.

UK ready to declare martial law to avert no-deal Brexit chaos
The government is gaming the use of drastic powers to halt unrest if the UK crashes out of the EU

FRANK AUGSTEIN
Whitehall officials have been gaming a state of emergency and even the introduction of martial law in the event of disorder after a no-deal Brexit, it has emerged.

Mandarins are considering how to use the sweeping powers available under the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 to stop any civil disobedience resulting from the nation leaving the EU on March 29.

Curfews, bans on travel, confiscation of property and, most drastic, the deployment of the armed forces to quell rioting are among the measures available to ministers under the legislation.

They can also amend any act of parliament, except the Human Rights Act, for a maximum of 21 days.

Robert MacFarlane, the deputy director of the Civil Contingencies Secretariat, has been involved in discussions about the practicalities…

I hope it backfires and there is some kind of military coup then the top brass put some of this lot in front of a firing squad.

Martial law plans being prepped to prevent riots after no-deal Brexit
Adam SmithSunday 27 Jan 2019 1:54 pm

Plans to introduce a martial law to prevent unrest in the event of a chaotic no-deal Brexit are being looked at by the country’s top planners. The civil service are ‘prepping’ for all possibilities including putting troops on the streets of UK cities to stop rioting over food shortages. Health Secretary Matt Hancock confirmed the move on the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show. Armed soldiers could be a regular sight under martial law (Picture: Bloomberg) Legislation being looked at by Brexit planners would give ministers the power to impose curfews, travel bans, confiscate property and deploy soldiers where necessary. Asked if a martial law would be introduced, Mr Hancock said: ‘Of course the Government all of the time looks at all the options for all circumstances.’

I`ve always said people all over the UK downing tools is what`s required to give the elites a real fright. Who will do their dirty work for them then I wonder? No cleaners, no taxi drivers, no postal workers, no bank workers, no WORK COACHES (because they might actually start siding with us for a change when their jobs are at risk) and no airline pilots etc, etc….

Then again, the army also need to come on board and the police. People power should mean just that. Stopping everything and demanding change is the only way to make things happen. Either that or we will end up like Venezuela. :dry:
