    It is a part of the UK so it is subject to the agreement UK Buffoon Johnson signed up to.

    How Brexit left Hull’s fishing industry facing extinction

    "At 4am on 24 April 2019, 25 brass players, two percussionists and a conductor piled into a coach in Hull for a 200-mile drive to London. It was a Wednesday morning and it had been touch and go whether all of them would be able to get time off from their day jobs to make the trip. Seven hours later, they stood on the quayside at Greenwich, as Princess Anne swung a bottle of champagne at the looming yellow hull of the UK’s newest and biggest whitefish trawler."

    "Many of the people gathered that day had voted for Brexit in the EU referendum and hopes were high that it would usher in a new era for a British industry that had been dwindling for years. The Kirkella was the larger of two new boats built by the private company UK Fisheries in 2018, at a combined cost of nearly £59m, landing fish at Hull for the first time in a decade. The Princess Royal summed up the optimistic mood on the quayside when she offered her congratulations “to the owner for their investment in the future of fishing”. As the bottle smashed against the boat, the players launched into a lung-busting rendition of Hearts of Oak. Before they had even finished playing, recalls Tony Newiss, cornet player and chairman of the City of Hull Band, the heavens opened and everyone got drenched."

    "Two years on, the scene could serve as a portent of troubles that were to come. Snarled up in negotiations over fishing rights, which now have to be negotiated with each of the countries in whose waters it works, the UK’s last distant-water trawler sits idle, unable to work in its normal patch off the coasts of Norway, Greenland and the Faroe Islands. The vessel has not only been blindsided by the repercussions of Brexit, but is caught up in a longer tale of decline that goes back to the cod wars of the 20th century and a wider one of the unfolding climate crisis. Those with long memories can recall a time when there was enough cod and haddock for everyone in the seas around the UK, but warming waters have driven them north into the deeper, colder waters of the Nordic states. As a result of these changes in fish stocks, and the territorial squabbles that result, today’s fishing industry only represents 0.12% of the UK’s economy."

    "The Kirkella’s problems are part of a bigger picture that stretches all the way down from this mighty industrial vessel, with its nets capable of landing 12 tonnes of fish in a single trawl, to small, line-fishing boats that fish closer to home. “Fishers from Penzance to Peterhead are out of work and angry,” said Hardy. “They have been badly let down and they have every reason and every right to ask why."

    No need to ask why...

    The idiots voted brexit and thus for their own demise!

    No sympathy whatsoever!

    Interesting.

    A and B sign a legally binding contract.

    A decides after a bit that he doesnt like what he agreed to do because he didnt actually read the contract and anyway he had always told everybody that he would never sign it, so he decides to ignore it but demands that B stick to his side of the agreement.

    And then you decide that B is being treacherous for not doing that but instead pointing out that A agreed to penalty clauses which would apply if he didnt do what he had agreed to do.

    Do you behave like this in real life? Do you make agreements and then break them, and think thats perfectly OK?
    Would you have been happy to do work for him if you knew he had a reputation for not paying?

    Your views on what counts as trustworthy and honest behaviour, and the standards to which you think this country, one which you profess to be proud of, should aspire, are totally antithetical to us being the respected international power, the maker of amazing trade deals, that you think we are.

    You wouldnt have us punch above our weight - youd have us punch below the belt.

    Mr Bumbalini has flown in from Canada, where it is not illegal to have cannabis in your suitcase.

    Hands up who thinks that Mr Bumbalini should not have to obey our laws, and that there should never have been any checks on his luggage in the first place?

    :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
    The politician who did not understand the importance of Dover for cross-channel trade ridicules Macron for stating that Toulouse and Paris are in the same country.
    Dominic Raab calls Emmanuel Macron's Northern Ireland comment 'offensive'
    https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-57460077
    Obviously he reads the same paper as Vinty.
    Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab says a comment by the French president, reportedly claiming Northern Ireland is not part of the UK, is "offensive".

    Emmanuel Macron is alleged to have made the remark during meetings at the G7 summit in Cornwall this weekend.
    How desperate has UK politics become that the ministers have to rely on the media for the 'facts'.
    Notedly, BBC omits to print Macron's actual comment, and leaves Raab allegations unrefuted.
    Even Vinty's source, the Express printed a fuller version:
    Mr Johnson, who was accompanied by his chief negotiator Lord Frost throughout, was said to be “taken aback” by an EU attitude that Northern Ireland is a separate country.

    This was highlighted in the meeting with President Macron when the Prime Minister asked him whether he would be angered if Toulouse sausages were blocked from going to Paris by a foreign power.

    Macron is understood to have retorted: “Not a good comparison because Paris and Toulouse are both part of the same country.”

    A dumbstruck Prime Minister then replied: “Northern Ireland and Britain are part of the same country as well.”​
    Clearly Boris takes offence when it suits him, with his perception of what Macron meant.
