The UK caved in to France over the Brexit fishing row. Don’t let Kuenssberg lie to you!

Last Updated: November 4, 2021By Tags: , , , , , , , ,

How curious to see the BBC still trying to claim a UK victory against France and the EU in the row over fishing permits!

For clarity: the reason France has released a British trawler it detained is that the UK has now handed out the fishing permits that France wanted. Boris Johnson caved in.

Under the Brexit agreement, the EU and UK have agreed they will give fishing licences to boats if they can show they have fished in each others’ waters for years.

But the UK had rejected applications from French fishing businesses, quibbling over the amount of evidence that is needed. It is suggested that only around 40 boats were affected, who had either not taken part in a monitoring survey, or were replacement vessels for firms that had fished in UK waters with their previous boats.

France had threatened sanctions against the UK unless more licences were granted by November 2 – but then suspended the threats ahead of new talks set to take place today (November 4).

BBC Political Editor and Tory propagandist Laura Kuenssberg span – but nobody who knows anything about the matter was fooled:

So there you have it.

It will be interesting to learn what comes of these talks today, considering the main issue has just evaporated.

    the main issue is Northern Ireland and honouring the Good Friday agreement

      NI was always the elephant in the room, as anyone with any understanding of its troubled history would have foreseen at the time of the Referendum. Unfortunately, too many over here in England seemed oblivious to the ramifications. Or perhaps I’m just fortunate in having married a lady from County Antrim, as well as having some close friends from Belfast.
