So, a recession is coming, we do not know when, what will cause it, nor for how long it might last. We do know that with interest rates in many parts of the World below zero, close to zero or not much more than 2% (outside of Argentina where they have been 60% recently), that the old levers of monetary policy are not available to stimulate demand as has been the case in prior recessionary scenarios when central banks would slash interest rates, as was last seen post the 2008 financial crisis.

Over this period, the UK Government will either have to strike a deal with the EU on the three key divorce issues (how much the UK owes the EU, what happens to the Northern Ireland border and what happens to UK citizens living in the EU and those EU citizens living in the UK), or walk away from the negotiating table.
