According to The Guardian, Carney likened the possible consequences of a no-deal scenario for the country to the 2008 financial crisis' fallout. The bank’s governor reportedly warned the government about the possibility of the unemployment rising by two-digit percentage points, falling housing prices and worsening transport communication with the continent.
Since the United Kingdom launched the process of leaving the European Union in March 2017, various sectors of the UK economy, including banking and finance, have been facing instability over the possibility of hard Brexit, since both parties have been failing to agree on the issue of future economic relations.
The Bank of England even requested UK financial firms to draft contingency plans for a no-deal Brexit. In August, Carney said that the risk of leaving the European Union without a deal was "uncomfortably high" for the United Kingdom.
The United Kingdom is set to leave the bloc in late March 2019.
