Abstract

News this week that the UK Government had reiterated its intention not to seek an extension of the transition period of de facto EU membership had some pundits making reference to the manifest folly of a No Deal Brexit outcome coming on the tails of the devastation wrought on the UK economy by Covid-19. Marina Hyde, writing in the Guardian, likened it to the torpedoing of the USS Indianapolis by a Japanese submarine in 1945, during the closing stages of the Second World War.
