So what exactly is a 'tariff'? ask Brexit voters

BREXIT voters have asked what a ‘tariff' is after discovering the term this morning.

As Downing Street confirmed that Britain would apply zero import tariffs in the event of a no-deal Brexit, millions of Brexit voters said it sounded exotic and interesting.

Wayne Hayes, from Lincoln, said: “Is it like a mobile phone tariff? Do I have to give my phone to some French pervert?”

Eleanor Johnson, from Telford, added: “I was at a hotel once that a had a ‘tariff’. Are we importing hotels now? How do they get them on the lorries?”

She added: “I’m not sure about this, I’ll have to think about it. Still, at least it doesn’t have anything to do with jobs.”
