Responding to reports in The Sunday Times about the government’s assessment of the impact a no-deal Brexit would have on the supply of fuel, food and medicines, Liberal Democrat Brexit spokesperson Tom Brake MP said:
"Operation Yellowhammer reveals the truth of a No Deal Brexit. It would have wartime implications, in peacetime, all of them self-inflicted.
"People will be horrified that Boris Johnson and the Conservatives are willing to pursue a plan that will lead to shortages of medicines, food and fuel. This is a far cry from the promises Boris Johnson made in the referendum campaign.
"Brexit has become a national humiliation. It is time to put an end to this chaos, recall Parliament, remove the threat of crashing out with No Deal and secure a People's Vote with the option to remain, so we can stop Brexit altogether."
