Now the French fisher persons discuss blockade of Jersey

 

UK sends Royal Navy patrol ships to monitor Jersey blockade - BBC News

 

The UK will send two Royal Navy patrol vessels to monitor a planned blockade of Jersey's main port amid a fishing rights row with France.

PM Boris Johnson pledged his "unwavering support" for the island, a Crown dependency 14 miles (22km) off France in the English Channel.

It came after the French government threatened to cut off Jersey's electricity over a post-Brexit dispute.

The row emerged over a new licensing system for French fishing vessels.

The system - introduced by the Government of Jersey under the UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA) - requires French boats to show they have a history of fishing in Jersey's waters.

But French authorities said "new technical measures" for fishing off the Channel Islands had not been communicated to the EU, rendering them "null and void".

The AFP news agency reported that about 100 French fishing vessels would sail to Jersey's port on Thursday as part of a protest against the new rules, quoting the head of fisheries for the Normandy region, Dimitri Rogoff.

Mr Rogoff said the vessels would not try to block the port at St Helier and would return to France in the afternoon, AFP reported.

Downing Street said Mr Johnson believed "any blockade would be completely unjustified" and that the Navy vessels would be deployed as a "precautionary measure".

The prime minister held talks with Jersey's Chief Minister John Le Fondré and Minister of External Affairs Ian Gorst.

In this particular case, Boris is right.

Jersey is a UK protectorate and French fishermen were threatening an illegal blockade.

 

Nothing he can do if the French flip the switch and turn the lights off though.

Easy...just block the wine imports

 

The French governments simply bow down when things get tough at home and reform is a word they don't recognise

UK capitulates in their childish refusal to grant the EU's ambassador full diplomatic status.

The European Union has always been about a business cartel, in effect. One with a laudable aim.

The bit in bold is truly starting to hit home. Project Reality supersedes Project Wishful Thinking.

 

Good on France for refusing to accept Brexs***t.

Global (laughing stock) Britain.

EU has formally accused the UK of breaching the withdrawal agreement with regards to fishing around Jersey.

Legal remedy being prepared.

What the UK media didn't tell you;

France also sent two armed Customs boats to the scene to balance out Boris' diddy fleet.

The head of the French fishermen delegation met with the Jersey minister for the Environment for almost two hours in neutral waters with their boats tied up alongside each other. Talks were apparently cordial and productive.

The French protest lasted for over 6 hours before going home.

 

But the UK media paints it as "BRAVE BORIS STARES DOWN THE FROGGIES"

Jersey fishermen saying they've been forgotten in all of this, and that the new fishing and export rules have hurt their business far more than it's hurt the French.

Other businesses must be scratching their heads at the amount of time given to the Fisher people. You're minnows compared to other sectors on this plaice. So stop whaling.
