New Govt Alternative Arrangements group is a 'preposterous waste of time'

Responding to the news that the Government is establishing a Brexit Alternative Arrangements Working Group, Best for Britain supporter Tim Farron MP said:

"The idea that government ministers would create a group to discuss the half baked Malthouse Plan is a preposterous waste of time. 

"It shows what a situation that the Conservative party have got themselves into. All the MPs involved know this plan is dead on arrival with EU leaders but yet are wasting valuable time and effort on this hare-brained scheme. The government is in dire straights if it is creating a committee like this with with only weeks till Brexit.

"This is like the committee of a cryogenics centre discussing what the customers will have for lunch the day after they come back to life.  Interesting chat but none of what they discuss is ever going to happen is it?"
