  1. wow, can't believe this is still going on. The UK needs to back off. They have let their fishermen go into France waters and illegaly fish for years. This is funny because the UK throws a fit over China boats fishing in their waters illegally lol

  2. 98% of fishing licenses have been granted. The dispute is small amount of French fishing boats that have no previous evidence or logs of fishing in British waters. Macron is using this to gain votes for elections next year which he could lose.

  3. In the agreement, EU vessels need to prove historical evidence of fishing in British waters for them to qualify for a licence. It is understood that those vessels that have had their applications denied by the British have never fished in British waters, they are simply "opportunists" trying to get a free licence. The British even extended the application period to give these vessels extra time to gather their paperwork, but they are still unable to prove that they have fished in British waters. Guernsey authorities have also checked their own GPS (and other) records for evidence of fishing these waters, but no evidence has been found.

    If the French have a genuine case against the British licencing authority they should follow protocol, and proceed with legal action. They are choosing not to.

  4. The problem with fishing for France being that the French dont show any respect for uk sovereign waters why don't they go and fish off other European waters

  5. Macaroni sees himself as the new version of Napoleon. It's not just about fish. He made a military agreement with Greece for the natural gas reserves in the eastern Mediterranean. The British should also establish close relations with the Turks if they do not want to be isolated.
