THERESA May has reportedly told Cabinet ministers to draw up laws for a hard Brexit to show Britain would be prepared to stand alone if EU negotiations turn sour, it has been claimed.

The Prime Minister’s order came after David Davis warned ministers that EU members must realise Britain is prepared to go it alone if negotiators cannot thrash out a good Brexit deal.

The Brexit Secretary told the Cabinet: “Britain will only land a good trade deal if the remaining 27 members believe we really are prepared to go it alone without any agreement.”

Ministers have now been tasked with drawing up new legislation for post-Brexit Britain if negotiators cannot draw up an agreement that suits both the UK and the EU, according to The Sun.

Mr Davis has labelled the planning as “the most important peacetime operation” the Government has ever dealt with.

Downing Street said the Cabinet discussion showed the Government was preparing for “the unlikely scenario in which no mutually satisfactory agreement can be reached”.
