British army preparing for no deal Brexit chaos

Daily Mail, UK -The army has been drawing up secret plans to put troops on the streets to help with potential chaos in the wake of a no-deal Brexit.

Plans have been drawn up by the military for Operation Temperer, who usually help police on the streets in the threat of terrorism, in the event of a no-Brexit scenario.

Contingency plans involve how the military could help keep public order amid such as the delivery and stockpiling of medicines to hospitals across the country, according to The Times.

Chief of Defence Staff General Sir Nick Carter commented on the Andrew Marr Show last week: ‘We make sensible contingency plans for all sort of eventualities whether it’s a terrorist attack, a tanker driver dispute or industrial action.
‘At this stage I think people are confident there will be a deal, If there’s not one, we stand ready to help in any way we can.
