Brexiteer Kate Hoey has claimed a no-deal Brexit is 'not the end of the world.'
The former Labour MP and pro-Brexit life peer said she was not 'too worried' about the prospect of failing to agree on a post-Brexit trade deal with the EU.
Hoey had previously criticised Boris Johnson's Brexit deal as offering a "half in half out position with the EU".
Last year she claimed: “It is seeking to do in less than a month what Sinn Fein/IRA failed to achieve in a century of murderous physical force.”
Her new comments come after concerns have been mounting about the impact of a no-deal on the UK, including possible food shortages

Hoey said she had no new information about a deal but added "clearly talks have gone on and there is movement."
She said: "I'm optimistic that if we do get a trade arrangement that it will be something I could vote for and that most of our strong campaigning Brexit MPs would be able to vote for."
