    Absolutely. This is what Macaroni Boy appears to have failed to grasp. If we leave no deal, then they get zero access to our fishing waters, and the french fishing fleet will be just a distant memory in five years. And serve the greedy bastards right.


    Dd you know the French get 88% of the Cod quota and we only get 9% ? We seriously need to put that right. It needs to be the other way round. They have stolen 100 billion worth of fish from our waters in 43 years, and havent paid a single penny for any of it. How come we wernt allowed to go and help ourselves to free french cheese or wine, free dutch tulips and free BMW's ?

    French farmers and fishermen do what they always do to get their own way, this article is recent but I remember in the 70s and 90s french farmers burning British sheep alive in the lorries.

    The big question is, have the French surrendered yet? If the threat is plausible surely they would have already deployed the French Defense of falling on the ground and whining for Barack Obama to help them.

    What will happen is this; when we enforce our fishing grounds with the navy it will decimate the EUs fishing fleets (Spain..France etc etc)
    The French will up the ante, the farmers will blockade our lorries and do everything to upset our legitimate trade with the EU.
    RIP Wes.

    And then it will get interesting, because the French Channel Ports are entirely dependent on cross channel trade. Calias is a port literally built on british cross channel traffic. Shut the traffic down, Calais' economy disintegrates. The Mayor and Port Boss of Calais are well aware of this, months ago when Project Fear was raging they stated they were all geared up to keep the trade flowing thru their town.


    Its all being driven by Macaroni Boy, and its all to do with the perpetual internal power struggle between France and Germany. France has always been outnumbered, by the British and Germans. But now weve left, Germany is on its own, and Macaroni Boy sees this as his chance to sieze the initiative and gain power - he using fishing as the blunt weapon, but this is really all about Financials and the City, he wants Paris to be the financial hub of europe. He also wants to be EU president.

    He is ofc delusional, it will never happen. Given that striking is a french national hobby, and the Eu is going to introduce a transaction tax, and the fact the French economy is now in deep shit, especially with no deal. No Financial centre in the world id going to trust the French with their money.
