Tory MP Nigel Evans has hit out at the government’s Operation Yellowhammer and described it as “project fear on steroids.”
On Wednesday evening the Yellowhammer report was released that revealed the worst case scenario in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
The confidential document says there could be a rise in public disorder, community tensions, protests, price increases that could lead to panic buying.
Speaking to Nick Ferrari on LBC Radio Evans said, “Yellowhammer is nothing more than worst-case scenario. And it’s worst-case scenario on steroids. It’s worst-case scenario if the government did no mitigation whatsoever.
“The fact is that the government has spent something in the region of £8billion in mitigation and preparation of what might happen.
“Yellowhammer is nothing more than Project Fear on steroids.”
