Johnson clashes with Welsh government over no-deal Brexit

Boris Johnson blew into Wales today, just after an opinion poll suggested the Conservatives under his leadership are now more popular than Labour.

The optimistic message on a no-deal Brexit is harder to sell in a nation where farmers depend on EU exports, but he promised a bright post-Brexit future nonetheless.

Farmers’ leaders warned there could be “civil unrest” and accused the Prime Minister of playing Russian roulette.
