Th French have seized a British Fishing Boat they say didn't have the right to fish in French waters , the British government has summoned the French ambassador for an explanation , meanwhile the French Europe minister today said " The British only understand the language of force" ... that's right sunshine just like when we forced the Nazi's out of your Country !

This is obviously a case of the French flexing their tiny muscles over the fact that they can't have as many boats fishing in British waters as they did when we were a part of the EU , La Frogs think they can strong arm us into letting them get their own way .... non Pierre , history should show you the error you are making.

"Lord Frost chaired a ministerial meeting earlier today to consider the UK response to the measures set out by France yesterday," a UK government spokesperson said.

"The proposed French actions are unjustified and do not appear to be compatible on the EU's part with the Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA) or wider international law.

"We regret the confrontational language that has been consistently used by the French government on this issue, which makes this situation no easier to resolve.

"We have raised our concerns strongly with both the French and the EU Commission. As a next step, the foreign secretary has instructed minister Morton to summon the French ambassador.

MacDuff Shellfish of Scotland, which owns the Cornelis, said the crew of its vessel were "in good spirits" after it was "ordered into a French port while legally fishing for scallop in French waters".

The captain was questioned after leaving the boat with French authorities and being given legal representation by the company.

MacDuff Shellfish confirmed the captain had been released and returned to the ship, but the Cornelius was "not at liberty to leave" the port while the investigation was ongoing.

He said Macduff's "fishing activity [was] entirely legal" and it appeared the Cornelis, based at Shoreham, in West Sussex, had been "caught up" in the ongoing UK-France post-Brexit fishing row.

This is a fight I think we should be happy to have.

Betting against the Brits against France is a losing proposition.

History tells us that. Even the revered Napoleon couldn't get it done. For every Napoleon, there seems to be a Wellington, or a Nelson--or both.

Britain FTW.

I love the Brits, and I love the French and nothing is more amusing as an American than to see them get in a tiffy.

I think the Brits have always envied the style and elegance of the French, and the French have envied the power and fortitude of the Brits.

If I had to pick a side, au revoir mes amis!

We shouldn't negotiate with terrorists.

Strip them of all fishing rights in our waters. It will be a huge boost for us post-brexit.

So is cowardice.



According to the Online Etymology Dictionary, the word coward came into English from the Old French word coart (modern French couard), which is a combination of the word for "tail" (Modern French queue, Latin cauda) and an agent noun suffix. It would therefore have meant "one with a tail", which may conjur an image of an animal displaying its tail in flight of fear ("turning tail"), or a dog's habit of putting its tail between its legs when it is afraid.
