Sometimes we can say more without words. One student in England spoke volumes with a single eye roll.
Harriet Ellis, a student at the University of Birmingham had a prime seat for Channel 4's Brexit debate "What The Nation Really Thinks," when Nigel Farage of the UK Independence Party began to speak.
