Yes, that is a point, but is there really a significant difference between "No deal" and "Hard Brexit"?

A No deal Brexit could result in a situation where there is literally a no fly zone between the EU and UK as the "blue skies" agreement will lapse for the UK when it leaves. Michael O'Leary has warned precisely of this possibility, and says he will start pulling flights from the UK next year as airlines have to plan their schedule 6-12 months in advance. This would put huge pressure on May to come to a deal as the A50 period comes into it's last 6 months.

It will be like Dunkirk all over again - stranded British tourists and expats trying to get home while those nasty Germans, spineless French and back stabbing Irish betray Jonny English who is only exercising his God given right to travel the world...

Can't they take the ferry or the train?. Which raises the question what rules govern them, and will they have to stop as well?

Not many rules, but customs and immigration checks can be pretty arduous especially if you are waiting in the same line as all other non-EU nationals...
