'We're leaving, we're sovereign!' Iain Duncan Smith attacks Remainer 'doomsday dossier'

The report warns of food and power shortages if there is a no-deal Brexit the same time as a second COVID-19 wave. The leaked dossier has revealed the military could be brought in to airdrop food to the Channel Islands. The document warned the Navy could be required to stop British fishermen fighting with European fishing boats.

Writing on Twitter, he said: “I don’t see the point in people producing “doomsday scenarios”.

“You could produce a scenario where everything is wonderful and nothing goes wrong at all and that would be equally as bad. The answer is we’re leaving. We’re sovereign. #Brexit.”

Speaking on Talk Radio, Mr Duncan Smith said the civil servants were the “worst people in the world to forecast anything”.

“My answer to them is pick your bags up, get back to your offices because hardly any civil servants are back in their offices at the moment, show us all an example, get back to work and that way we will get the economy moving.”

A Government spokeswoman has said the document shows the Government is ready for all eventualities.

“Part of this work includes routine contingency planning for various scenarios that we do not think will happen, but we must be ready for come what may.

“Whether we trade with the EU on terms similar to Canada or to Australia, a brighter future awaits as we forge our own path.”
