Article in 'The Independent' reports around 40 councils anticipate a rise in civil unrest (including hate-crime) if there is a 'No-Deal' Brexit

Official documents from 63 councils uncovered by the People’s Vote campaign have revealed local authorities fear that fundamental services could suffer and others could be cut if the UK crashes out of the EU.

... And just under two-thirds said civil unrest, increased tensions between communities and public disorder could be sparked, including Dartford council which warned of an “increase in hate crime” as the area had “always been a target” for extreme right wing groups.


(Dartford is a particular personal concern, as it is where my Mauritian daughter-in-law lives.)
