Another Brexit story - but with a remarkable angle this time. This BBC piece looks at the potential impact of Brexit on the Kenyan flower trade, not a link that's immediately obvious.

However, the prospect of a no-deal Brexit could see Kenya go from getting unrestricted access to the UK market via an EU trade deal, to facing tariffs of 8.5-12% reducing their ability to export to the UK.
