How can MPS wage war on own peo­ple?

Gloucestershire Echo - - NEWS - Adrian Phillips

✒ THE for­mer head of the Civil Ser­vice de­scribed a No Deal Brexit as “in­sane”.

Be­fore Brexit-lovers dis­miss this as the pre­dictable re­sponse of a Re­mainer, Bob Ker­slake was re­spond­ing to the news that the Gov­ern­ment’s plans en­vis­age the fol­low­ing if we leave the EU with­out a deal in a few weeks’ time: Less fresh food and food prices ris­ing A hard border be­tween Ire­land and the UK, spark­ing protests

Less fuel, per­haps two oil re­finer­ies clos­ing

Pa­tients wait­ing longer for medicines, in­clud­ing in­sulin and flu vac­cines

Pub­lic dis­or­der Pas­sen­gers be­ing de­layed at EU air­ports, Euro­tun­nel and Dover

Three months of freight dis­rup­tion, then op­er­at­ing at 50-70% of the cur­rent rate.

This is NOT Project Fear. These are the Gov­ern­ment’s own plans. How can any MP – in­clud­ing Alex Chalk - support a Gov­ern­ment that wants to wage war on its own peo­ple?
