Britain's government stepped up warnings Wednesday that a "no-deal" Brexit would hammer the economy, but acknowledged that Prime Minister Theresa May's plan, opposed by many of her own side, would also leave the economy worse off than staying in the EU.In a scenario resembling the agreement May has struck with other European Union leaders, national output would be 2.1 percent smaller in just over 15 years' time than if Britain remained in the bloc, the government said.Assuming there was zero net migration from the EU in the future, the hit to the economy would be bigger: 3.9 percent under May's deal, and 9.3 percent without a deal.Four months before Britain is due to leave the EU, May is struggling to overcome deep resistance within her own Conservative Party and among other parties to the agreement she sealed with EU leaders on Sunday.
