The UK will recognize European Union standards for medicines.

The Oct. 18-19 summit of all EU leaders has always been cast as the make-or-break moment for a Brexit deal, leaving enough time for the elaborate ratification process by EU member states and the European Parliament.

The documents have shown up the UK's no-deal plans as a bluff that was "fooling no-one", said Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones. Sign-up now and enjoy one (1) week free access! Far from being forced to charge tariffs on imports as the scare-mongerers would have you believe, "Mr Howe says this is not true as the United Kingdom will be free to charge lower levels of tariffs or zero tariffs if we feel fit", says the Sun.

The government says it will publish the first in a series of technical notices created to prepare the United Kingdom for the possibility of a no-deal Brexit.

There are five basic scenarios for the outcome of the negotiations, according to the think tank, but under the Article 50 exit rules, there is a built in likelihood of no deal.

Michelle Bloodworth, president of the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity, a coal lobby group, welcomed the EPA plan . Jim Justice said the rule was "a big win for West Virginia".

They say only that a "no deal" scenario would pose "very significant challenges" that would have to be discussed with Ireland and the EU.

Announcing the publication of the documents the Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab again reasserted the government's commitments to Northern Ireland and how they were committed to ensuring there was no hard border at the Irish border. Prime Minister Theresa May's plan for a "business-friendly" deal has failed to impress negotiators in Brussels and has been heavily criticised at home.

The former head of the civil service Lord Kerslake has said that if the United Kingdom was on course to leave the European Union without a deal next March that would lead to a re-examination of the exit decision.

Britain will publish on Thursday the first of a series of technical notices created to help people and businesses prepare for a no-deal scenario and Raab will give a speech outlining how the government plans to mitigate against any potential risks.

In what is being seen as a deliberate attempt to put pressure on Ireland's prime minister, Leo Varadkar, the United Kingdom government has recommended that businesses trading across the border "should consider whether you will need advice from the Irish government about preparations you need to make".

Hurricane Lane is the biggest weather threat to Hawaii in decades
As Hurricane Lane nears, some parts of the state have already seen more than a foot of rain in the past 24 hours. The storm's exact path isn't certain, although it's expected to make a critical westward turn into the Pacific.

But just days after a vehicle hit pedestrians and police officers outside Britain's parliament, junior defence minister Tobias Ellwood said military and security co-operation should not be up for debate with the EU.

"The committee will expect an updated analysis to be published in good time to inform parliament's key decisions on the final deal".

He said he was still "confident" there would be an agreement - but the government was taking steps to "protect the UK". And he pointed out that in the worst-case scenario the United Kingdom would trade with the European Union on World Trade Organization terms, much like many other countries.

London and Brussels hope to strike a deal by October, to allow its ratification by the European and British parliaments before the United Kingdom leaves the bloc.

The details on "no deal" published by the government are sobering.

While Mr. Raab presented the papers as a practical response, some business leaders said the documents highlighted the dangers of a cliff-edge departure.
