Cornwall was a large net beneficiary of European Union funding yet 56 per cent of its residents voted to leave. Graham Smith, from news website Cornwall Reports, joins Tim and Jen to discuss the perceived wisdom behind the decision. Graham has been a journalist in the county for 36 years and provides great insight into the economic and social challenges this remote part of the UK now faces. We discuss agriculture, tourism, and the fishing industry and ask the hard-hitting questions, such as: With the potential loss of seasonal migrant workers, who is going to pick the early-blooming daffodils?
