Sounds fishy -

Recommended Posts

Seems the EU has warned the UK that it will run short of fish in the event of a "no deal" Brexit - so our staple fish and chips will be off the menu !    Although we'll get our own fishing areas back, they claim we won't have enough trawlers to maintain current levels of supply.   A red herring or not ?

What I find amazing about this is:  the EU insisted on reduced quotas,  then sent their fishing fleets into UK waters, making a load of UK trawlers redundant. Now, they're basically saying, still allow EU trawlers into UK waters (cos you haven't got enough), then we'll sell you the fish (plus a tariff) !    Seems the simple answer would be to enlarge OUR fishing fleet and create indigenous employment.
