Boreham Wood FC's 'weird' 1,400-word Brexit post

A football club's decision to post a 1,400-word article about Brexit has been called "weird", "embarrassing" and "slightly random".

Non-league side Boreham Wood posted an article entitled "MPs do your duty" on its website on Tuesday ahead of a Parliamentary vote on the Brexit deal.

However, others were in favour, and one said they "now support Boreham Wood".

"Then they must get ready to unite the whole of the UK by working night and day on a new Brexit deal, starting Wednesday morning, or be prepared to walk away with a no deal in July," the article concluded.

The comments from the club, which plays in the fifth tier of English football, come in the week that Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock said he "could not wait" for the UK to leave the European Union after his side's draw with Huddersfield in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, former England international Jamie Carragher told BBC Radio 5 live he was "convinced" there would be a different outcome if a second referendum were to be held.
