Re: "Are you at all surprised? "
"It's an internal British issue that they can't organize a p**s up at a brewery. That has f**k all to do with Europe."
One of my friends has a fair-sized farm. He explained that apart from generally being pro-European he was definitely voting Remain because, as far as farming was concerned, he had a lot more trust in the folk in Brussels than in Whitehall. And given DEFRA's widely published incompetence, also mentioned by other commentards, that seems a sensible assessment.
