Brexit a hot topic in UK, not so elsewhere

It seems the world has moved beyond brexit and the british. As stated in the independent: Bemusement in France as media yawn at Jersey ‘war’ https://www.independent.co.uk/news/w...-b1843165.html


The*British*press*has worked itself into a frenzy over the*Jersey*fishing row, with the words “war” and even “Nazis” appearing in headlines. But in*France*the media has given the issue an enormous Gallic shrug.
Nearly all London national newspapers had the latest Franco-British skirmish as their front-page top story, while not a single French national daily deemed it of sufficient interest for a cover splash.

Only a handful of French reporters were sent to the area to cover the events, while one commentator on French TV noted that there were more British journalists than fishing boats at the scene.
