The EU are trying to dictate terms to a nation of people people that voted to Leave their 28-member bloc on the 23rd June, 2016. The UK could be forced into keeping EU fishing quotas during the while ‘Transitional Period’ is takes place and that could be until 2021. And that’s according to The Guardian.
Reportedly diplomats from the EU are in agreement that there should be no changes with the quota system that is systemically causing destruction to coastal communities in the United Kingdom.
In other words, the EU tell the UK what fish it can catch or even what fish it can’t catch inside it’s own territorial waters, whilst not letting the UK have any input on EU fishing policy during this ‘Transition Period’. And they call this democracy?
One shameless EU diplomat reportedly said regarding Michael Gove’s ‘take back control of our waters’ statement: “We notice Gove hasn’t repeated that recently. Perhaps he has been reined in, because it isn’t going to happen.” Why is there uproar from the Conservative Party? where is their defence of the coastal communities and UK fishermen? the answer is no where.
I don’t believe this is the Brexit the 17.4 million Brexiteers voted for, do you? What fantasy do the elites in Brussels live in? it is just another demonstration of their complete disregard for nation state democracy and yet another example of their authoritarian tendencies.
The British people want their waters back!
