Whitehall officials have been gaming a state of emergency and even the introduction of martial law in the event of disorder after a no-deal Brexit

The Times

What are the implications of martial law being declared in the UK? The Wikipedia page has plenty of examples of other nations (including places which were at the time of the examples part of the UK), but not the UK as it currently exists.

In particular, what effect would UK martial law have on:

  • UK citizens living in the UK
  • UK citizens living in the EU
  • Non-UK citizens living in the UK
  • NI and Scottish independence campaigns
  • UK international trade links
  • The functioning of Westminster, the National Assembly for Wales, the Northern Ireland Assembly (if it wasn't already collapsed), and the Scottish Parliament
