Brexit, you may have seen, isn’t going particularly well at present. Furthermore, with under two months until the UK is planned to leave the European Union — and not a single solid arrangement to be found — the nation is developing increasingly loaded constantly. Presently, mystery plans from the administration’s Cabinet Office demonstrate that the Queen could be emptied after a no-bargain Brexit, if the UK’s clamorous takeoff from the EU brings about common distress.
As the Times reports, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip could be migrated from London to an undisclosed safe area if riots are activated by a no-bargain Brexit. “These crisis departure plans have been in presence since the Cold War, however have now been repurposed in case of common issue following a no-bargain Brexit,” an anonymous Cabinet Office source told the paper.
As per the Times, the plans — at first titled Operation Candid — were initially settled after the Cuban rocket emergency in 1962, and included the Queen being emptied via ocean should the Soviet Union dispatch an atomic weapon.
Dai Davies, already Scotland Yard’s head of illustrious security, told the paper, “If there were issues in London, plainly you would expel the imperial family away from those key destinations.” He included, “This is a measure that is incredibly far-fetched to happen. [But] the people pulling the strings need to have emergency courses of action for any inevitability.”
An anonymous government source stated, “The choice to empty individuals from the imperial family depends on whether their wellbeing is undermined,” focusing on that “right now we have no worry about their security.”
