Mr Grieve is adamant leaving the EU without a deal would be incredibly risky for the British public as he insisted there will huge delays and food shortages. His comments come despite Boris Johnson earmarking millions into a no deal Brexit plan as Chancellor Sajid Javid announced an extra £2billion of funding to go towards Brexit. BBC host John Humphrys hit back at the former Attorney General by highlighting the added funding since Theresa May’s Government.
Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, Mr Grieve said: “I’m pleased they’re taking contingency plans but it is still the most extraordinary document.
“This is a Government that in peacetime is content on inflicting on the British public the level of disruption which is set out in the Yellowhammer papers.
“It’s unprecedented. I can’t think of an occasion where I’ve seen something of this kind before and it highlights the risks that go with Brexit.”
The host said: “Surely they’re not content Mr Grieve because what they’ve done is spent a lot more money since you left government since Theresa May stopped being Prime Minister.
