Conservative MP Marcus Fysh gave a sweary response to a question about no-deal Brexit planning, branding predictions of civil unrest and stockpiling as "total bollocks".

The politician made the comments on the Matthew Wright show, during a discussion about the government's no-deal contingency plans, codenamed 'Operation Yellowhammer'.

"I'm sure the government has all sorts of plans to deal with all sorts of extreme situations should they come about - but that doesn't mean they're going to happen," Mr Fysh said.



"You had the health secretary saying that about medicines a few days ago, there's not going to be a shortage of any of that stuff, and anybody telling you that there is is talking total bollocks."

Presenter Matthew Wright interjected with "Language, please!", but the MP repeated the word again.

"Not everyone wants to hear Anglo-Saxonism middle English, we can do better," Wright said.

Co-host Kev added: "Have you noticed how politicians have decided that the B word is acceptable because Michael Gove said it in Parliament?".
