Brexit contingency-planning latest: Don’t ask me, ask God, minister testifies

From The Guardian‘s live blog just now:

In the Brexit committee Michael Gove has just finished answering a series of questions about how Dover would cope with lorry arrivals in the event of a no-deal Brexit. Hilary Benn, the committee chair, did not sound hugely reassured, and he concluded by asking Gove to admit that no one actually knows what will happen in the event of no deal. Gove did not contest this, but replied:

“The future is known only to the Almighty.”

But of course, there is problem with that:

Benn said unfortunately the Almighty would not be appearing as a witness.

I mean, really.
