As negotiations over Brexit have progressed only slowly in 2018, a “no deal” scenario has become increasingly realistic. Danish officials did not consider “no deal” a possibility a year ago, but important and difficult issues remain in the negotiations, such that even if agreement is reached between the UK government and the EU27, it could be rejected in the House of Commons. As a result, preparations for a possible “no deal” have begun in Denmark and other member states. For example, more customs personnel have been employed.
