Countryfile presenter Charlotte Smith spoke to several UK fishermen and women on the BBC show today to find out whether leaving the European Union had positively impacted the country’s fishing industry and provided them with the outcome they had hoped for. However, viewers took to Twitter to slam the broadcaster for its negative coverage of Brexit.
One angry fan tweeted: “BBC Countryfile doing what it does best by saying Brexit was a bad thing.”
“Here we go ten minutes in and the B-word gets a mention #countryfile,” another shared.
Someone else added: “BBC Countryfile is on and would you believe it, Brexit’s the problem!”
“What is happening to Countryfile I feel like I am watching a politics show. Switching off,” a fourth viewer said.
