Thin end of the wedge;
First they came for the sea bass but I did not speak out for I am not a Cornish fisherman.....

Beware, they'll be after your deep fried Christmas Dinners next!

They are served with a giant pig-in-a-blanket - a battered foot-long sausage

That is impressive.

Hey CCG your in Cornwall aren't you? Whats going on?

Read in the papers today the French fleet is invading......


Tensions are escalating off the coast of Cornwall - following the biggest
invasion of French trawlers into UK waters. Conflict arose after around 16
foreign crew swept in to catch sea bass just yards from the shore.Mr Loft of
Plymouth said "there will be conflict, this is now becoming a joke, rubbing
our noses in it.
The French have invaded our shorelines and British waters.
Mr Loft said he was livid at the blatant flagrant disregard for the law.
Tensions have been building between British and French fishermen for months


Macron said they would and we haven't even left the EU yet.

As ATS's eyes and ears in that part of the world .... have you been asleep.




Spoke to a fisherman mate, their trawlers were all alongside due to the weather/sea conditions, and the French knew it so they sent loads more fishing boats than usual, right up to our shore.
The locals here see it as provocation, the French trying it on because they can.
Roll on Brexit and getting our fishing rights back.

@Soloprotocol I'm confident public funds will continue to help Cornwall after we stop paying 300 million a week to the EU.
If I'm wrong I don't care, I voted leave, people will still want their walls plastered, and the tourists will still come from all over the world.

Sorry Cornish, that was one of the things she couldn't change. Even after, the French and Spanish will still have access to British waters. With their micro nets they hoover up everything. Tell your fisherman mate to look for another job.

I have to confess that i don't know much about the fishing rights aspect but surely it also means we will still have access to their waters too?

Defeatist talk!
It was a Devon boat which rammed the French a few weeks ago...both sides are angry.

Macron warning......



But the bluntest warning came from the French President Emmanuel Macron, who suggested that if the UK was unwilling to compromise in negotiations on fishing, which would need to make rapid progress, then talks on a wider trade deal would be slow.

"We as 27 have a clear position on fair competition, on fish, and on the subject of the EU's regulatory autonomy, and that forms part of our position for the future relationship talks," he said.

The president implied that without sufficient progress on trade, the backstop plan to avoid a hard border in Ireland would have to be implemented, including a temporary customs union for the whole of the UK.

"It is a lever because it is in our mutual interest to have this future relationship," Mr Macron said.

I regularly read readers letters in the papers as a means of gauging what the

public think. I came across this one from Cornwall.....




I am a sea angler who fishes out of Fowey, Cornwall with a rod and
line for pleasure
During the previous two years we were banned from keeping any bass
and this year we are limited to keeping just one should we be lucky
enough to catch any.

The limit was put in place to try to allow bass stocks to recover,
although most of the pleasure sea anglers thought it unfair, as very
few are caught on rod and line compare to the vast quantity taken by
trawlers

Now we see fleets of French trawlers coming in and being allowed to
take all the fish we have been trying to protect. They are constantly
doing it and are never challenged

They have completely wiped out all the work put in to protect our
stocks of fish. It is very unfair.





No more pleading with the EU for concessions.
How humiliating and undignified this whole thing is.
Lets just go - something we should have done two and a half years ago.



*BREXIT*
CCG Was that you?

The 13 million who didn't vote are irrelevant, they obviously didn't care either way.
That's how a democracy works mate, now stop bleating because the majority of people who were arsed to vote voted leave.

Haha no!
I only fish for Mackerel in the summer, and off the shore, not on a boat.
I'm surprised they are moaning though, nobody enforces the rules with non registered fishing boats, you can catch what you like and won't get caught lol.

13 million PEOPLE can hardly be considered to be irrelevant.

That's a rather short sited opinion to have regarding any demographic of such numbers to be honest.

How many of those 13 million simply could not manage to vote considering our aging population or for some other reason?

Truth is it was about half and half regarding the people who did vote, and this nation is still divided over Brexit, especially so considering the debacle it has been so far.

Plain as day really. x

Bollox, the overwhelming majority of the 13 million people who didn't vote just couldn't be arsed.
Even housebound invalids had the option of a postal vote they could have got their carer to post for them.
Yep, I'll say it again, those 13 million are irrelevant because they couldn't be arsed so I will assume they didn't care either way.
Stop crying for people who were too lazy to vote.

13 million irrelevant people, no wonder you voted ukip mate.

The only thing that is irrelevant, unimplementable, and quite possibly unwanted now is Brexit.

And stop telling people what to do, stop crying, or that they are bleating. as quite frankly you yourself are doing the very same.

Not the first time this has been pointed out to you nether.

People opinions are there own if you don't wish to read them then don't, problem solved i imagine.

17 million people get to decide the fate of 47 million. Sounds like democracy to me...Hmmmm

Yup when 16 million day no.

I think it should have been by a super majority in the first place.

Suppose it was indeed.

But if we have a second referendum on the matter i imagine the turn out will be even better, and the result somewhat different now the people understand what Brexit entails.

Certainly could not hurt, and if it's still the will of the people then so be it.
