Britain will slide into a year-long recession should it leave the European Union without a deal with Brussels, the government's official forecaster said Thursday.

"The UK enters a year-long recession in the fourth quarter of 2019" should Britain depart the bloc on October 31 with a "no-deal, no-transition Brexit", the Office for Budget Responsibility predicted in a report.
