I don’t know but I suspect the key is the currency. If Sterling drops because there is no agreement then the markets will give it a pounding (excuse the pun) and if the Arabs etc. move their money the rUk gov will have to move quick.
If the currency is not affected materially then it will be largely business as usual for most folk in England for the first few years.
