Cold War plans to evacuate Queen 'revived if Brexit leads to riots'

Cold War plans to evacuate Queen 'revived if Brexit leads to riots'

Plans would see the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh moved out of London to an unidentified location.

ERG deputy chairman Steve Baker, former Northern Ireland secretary Owen Paterson and Yeovil MP Marcus Fysh will join forces with former education secretary Nicky Morgan and ex-cabinet office minister Damian Green to examine the feasibility of the so-called Malthouse Compromise.

"Nor do I have time for those who believe the verdict passed by the British people in 2016 should be overturned before it is even implemented", she added, referring to the rump of MPs calling for a second referendum.

Politicians are divided of Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit plan which lawmakers in the United Kingdom have voted to change, however the European Union has stated that renegotiation won't be possible.

Queen Elizabeth and other members of the royal family could be evacuated if chaos breaks out in London in the event of a no-deal Brexit, two major British newspapers reported on Sunday.

An unnamed source in the United Kingdom government's Cabinet Office told the paper that the evacuation plans go all the way back to the Cold War.

In the event of the United Kingdom and European Union failing to agree a settlement before the Brexit deadline of March 29, the Queen and her husband, Prince Philip, will be moved out of London to a secret location, which the newspaper said it has agreed not to disclose. "Where and how they will evacuate them is top secret and I can't discuss it".

Hartley said Marks' and Pease's son was placed into protective custody in 2009 and he doesn't know the son's current location. Another woman tied to Marks was extradited back to Bell County in connection to the Scott-Swearingin disappearance.


Plans during the Cold War were called "Operation Candid" and had the royals transferred to different country homes in stage one with a later stage moving them to the Royal Yacht Britannia.

The plan has been put in place in the event of Brexit riots.

The EU insists that the deal "remains the best and only way to ensure an orderly withdrawal", but with the clock running down until the March 29 exit date the risks of a no-deal Brexit for both Britain and the bloc are coming into sharp focus.

However, with the withdrawal deal having been rejected in parliament over particular objections to the backstop, Mrs May will now try and renegotiate the deal with the EU.

Mrs May has suggested it could be replaced by "alternative arrangements", that it could be time-limited or that Britain could have the unilateral right to leave the arrangement.

With Brexit just seven weeks away, Britain's ruling Conservative Party was negotiating with itself Monday in an attempt to rework Britain's divorce deal with the European Union.

This position may be against Mr Maas's best interests, as giving the United Kingdom a new deal is perhaps the best route away from a so-called "Hard Brexit" - the worst case scenario for the German economy and business, which is a major exporter to Britain.
