So you mean they are paying them NOT to catch fish ??
Wait till the money runs out ??
What's a 100,000,000 Euro's now days, especially shared amongst
a load of vino swilling Frogs ??

The 80 or so Frog boat owners that are causing grief have not been able to supply this digital proof to DEFRA so no licenses can be issued to them. Fairy Nuff, says I, we're applying the new rules just like the EU is applying the new rules.
Oh, PV, I'm not sure I like you calling them Frogs all the time.

Yup.
Exactly that.


Wait until the Irish fisherman realize they've lost out again.
They're already fuming with their government, France and the EU.

Well, tough, I can't exactly call them Toadies, can I? How about cheese eating, wine drinking surrender monkeys instead?

Re: The fishing war begins ??

I wonder what Jersey will be calling the French with their latest threatened 'persuasive' methods?

"The French government has warned it could cut electricity to Jersey amid an escalating row over post-Brexit fishing rights.

Maritime Minister Annick Girardin told the French parliament that new rules governing access to Channel Islands waters were unacceptable.

She said France was "ready to use... retaliatory measures" under the UK-EU post-Brexit trade deal."

Last I heard, Jersey was inviting the Frogs to fish freely around their waters.
What has changed?
Or is it just what the Frogs do best - until someone stands up to them?
