After our exit from the European Union it Is said that farmers may not be able to grow basic crops like carrots, potatoes and strawberries. The damage of brexit after we leave the EU will be crucial to many families up and down the country, mainly in leave areas.
Fuel prices will soar by around 300 after brexit, leaks have shown the prices of fuel will increase from £1.20 to £3.60 per litre for petrol and £1.29 to £3.87 per litre for diesel. The increase will be put in place so that the UK does not have a shortage, this will affect ordinary people in the UK, public services like buses.
