The Remain supporting farmer from Bishop Auckland, who became a viral sensation last week for his 'turkeys voting for Christmas' speech during a BBC vox-pop, has returned with another anti-Brexit speech.
After the BBC News interview where he claimed that Johnson should be in jail for the lies he has told, John has created a Twitter profile to continue spreading a message of support for remaining in the EU.
In his first video, which already has been seen over 26,000 times, John said: "I have to thank you for the support I have been given, it's incredible. Think of Boris Johnson as a car salesman, he's selling his new concept car: the Brexit.
"Some think it's a bit of a dog, untried, untested and unwarranted. It's supposed to be environmentally friendly, sort of nuclear powered.
"It does not split the atom, only the nation. It's powered by a new fuel: ambition. It has no wheels, it floats on air - hot air. No Sat Nav, there is no road to its destination."

"The price is yet to be disclosed, we deserve better."
