Ah... It seems Yellowhammer isn't the worst case scenario. That one's called Black Swan, if the ST journo is correct:

Yet the liars in our cabinet tried to tell us it was.  How can we trust a word they tell us about anything?

The UK will still have to go through the accession process (which could take a long time) and there ain't no way in hell it would be able to get the rebate back. IMO.
It would be up to the British public to decide if that was a price worth paying for our foolishness in voting to leave in the first place.  My bet is after a few years of post-Brexit recession and misery, and no sign of the magical reduction in immigration figures that some seemed to think leaving the EU promised, we will be begging to be let back in, whatever the cost.

I've no way of verifying this at the moment, so usual caveats apply:

All 3 Brexit planning ops:

#Yellowhammer: base scenario for No Deal

#BlackSwan: worst case scenario for no deal (drug, food and energy rationing, Emergency Powers Act details and Martial Law planning)

#Kingfisher: financial support package for business

However, it does seem plausible to me for several reasons.

IFFFF my understanding of the situation is more or less accurate (which it may not be), there are several "Operations" open, dealing with different angles.

It would also mean that some more "creative ambiguity" is at play in terms of downplaying  the extent of  preparation for potential domestic chaos to avoid public panic.

Yellowhammer does seem to be the base assumption of a no-deal scenario (whittled down to a one or two sentence summary).

The other two seem to be about operational planning (army/police, and emergency aid to selected business / service sectors), based on YH.

Meanwhile, Fuzz Wuzzy Hulk BoJo might well "negotiate" what the EU originally proposed (the NI proposal, as opposed to May's UK backstop) and claim victory.

If that happens, the UK could end up as the Kingdom of England.
