‘We should have been prepared’

Mr Grayling, the Transport Secretary, said the dropped contracts were a piece of a £4bn no-bargain “protection arrangement” the legislature had set up.

“Individuals would anticipate that a mindful government should take out a protection strategy, and that is the thing that we’ve done, to ensure we can manage every one of the difficulties in a no-bargain Brexit.

“We never needed it, we never worked for it, yet we beyond any doubt as certain should have been prepared for it,” he said.

Grayling enduring an onslaught

Work shadow transport secretary Andy McDonald said the agreements will be “a contextual analysis in ecclesiastical ineptitude” with respect to Mr Grayling.

“The Transport Secretary’s way to deal with acquisition and arranging has cost citizens tens, if not, countless pounds. His profession as a clergyman has left a trail of seared earth and billions of pounds of open cash squandered.

“This nation can’t manage the cost of Chris Grayling.”
