Boris facing full "exposure: MPs vote to require all "Operation Yellowhammer" No Deal Docs published

Tomorrow!

Ministers will now have to publish all ‘Operation Yellowhammer’ No Deal preparation documents - including WhatsApp messages and email - seen by the cabinet or a cabinet committee since July 23 by 11pm on Wednesday September 10.


BREXIT MELTDOWN What is Operation Yellowhammer? (yes, this is the Sun, but it has the best summary thus far for those of us not following so closely)

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/9896161/what-is-operation-yellowhammer/

MPs backed a motion on September 9, calling for the publication of all government communications and documents relating to Operation Yellowhammer.

But what is it? Here's what we know.

What is Operation Yellowhammer?

Operation Yellowhammer is the government's contingency plan in the event of a No Deal Brexit.

It was created in June 2018 as a way for the government to take control and quickly co-ordinate with different agencies to handle any short-term disruption.

It covered 12 areas including energy, food, water, transport and health care.

The operation was based on the worst-case scenario assumptions if the UK crashes out of the European Union without a deal.


What was the Commons vote on Operation Yellowhammer?

On September 9, MPs backed a motion calling to publish connected to prorogation and no-deal Brexit and the controversial Operation Yellowhammer documents.

Ex-attorney general Dominic Grieve's demand for written and electronic contact about the temporary suspension of Parliament to be released was approved by 311 votes to 302.

2. I love that the response back to every bill acted upon by the Parliament is in 'Norman' French

or at least that's what Chris Hayes just told us. I thought it sounded French, but this is the UK and it didn't even sound like the French I'm accustomed to... LOL

The pomp and circumstance is fascinating, but what I want to know is what they are going to do if Boris takes the next week(s) and does nothing.

3. It's not the "worst case" now. It's what's reasonably expected. Nt
