The Poor Fish Bites Again

Chris Grayling, who, single handed, wrecked the criminal justice and legal aid systems and is arguably the dimmest  and most dangerously incompetent minister we have seen in decades, is, according to the FT, now discussing with colleagues “chartering ships” to bring supplies into the UK in the event of the UK crashing out of the EU and Dover jamming up. As ever with that poor fish, the Grayling seems not to have thought things through. If the government charters ships it will have to decide what cargoes the convoys will carry, which distributors will be supplied and hence who are to be the ultimate consumers. It is called rationing, last seen in the UK during WWII. However, presumably such a disaster might be exploited by Boris the Bold to pursue his dream of becoming a second Churchill.
