UK farmers call for more conciliatory stance at Brexit talks

By Nigel Hunt

Britain’s government must change its strategy at Brexit talks following last week’s inconclusive general election result, taking a more conciliatory approach, Meurig Raymond, president of the National Farmers Union said on Wednesday.

“The government must ask itself, did the general election give the prime minister the mandate for the Brexit she sought. I would suggest not,” Raymond said at the arable industry’s major annual event, Cereals 2017.
