PS 1.

No deal doesn't help with things not covered by WTO. WTO covers goods and services.

There's no WTO for cross-border healthcare, citizens’ rights, travel, flights, science collaboration, medicines, nuclear, defence and security amongst other things.

PS 2:

No deal doesn't fix the pesky issue of the Northern Ireland border. I know leavers don't care that NI voted by a much larger majority to remain, but they should note that WTO rules require closed borders between WTO members but the Good Friday Agreement will not allow there to be a hard border. The EU would still have to maintain its side of the border. That would require check of goods coming into Ireland from the UK. One solution would of course be for a united Ireland inside the EU.
