When asked exactly what it is the Brexiteers want to do in a recent interview, Boris Johnson said:
Well, we want to be free to do what we want to do.

A fact which many farmers are having a hard time believing.
What a week it’s been for The Daily Mail!
A week in which they seem to have gone full circle, and are now complaining that women aren’t getting a fair crack of the whip!
And also that wages for elites in the UK are too high!
