These two Express headlines about fishing are Brexit in a nutshell – the only 5 reactions you need
According to some chief Brexiters, the UK’s control of its own fishing waters was far more important than the economic impact it might have.
The Express – very much a Brexit-supporting paper – shared two headlines about the UK’s new deal with the EU, and it tells a tale that’s peak Brexit.
Two articles about fishing, the first on Sunday 3rd and the second a day later on Monday 4th. This is quite possibly the most #PeakDailyExpress thing I've ever seen.
