    Worthless?

    The fishing industry could be worth up to 3.5% of GDP.

    ^ You need a buyer of fresh fish for best profit margin. Shellfish is the best margin and sold mainly to EU. Couldn't buy in local markets sometimes because better money abroad.

    No EU means no profitable market. A lose-lose situation.

    Then why is the resolution of this issue so important to the EU?

    No. The Scam of the quotas is that they are OWNED by the rich fuckers. Has nothing to do with nations and everything to do with a standard EU ponzi scheme. The ToRy Filth will approve of this.

    Al Kemal (also known by his stage name Boris Johnson) is a Blairite at heart. Cameron changed the Tory FIlth into a Blairite stooge party following the Saul Alinsky route to fascism. Cameron picked it up seemlessly, then onto Maybot who then handed the poison chalice over to Al Kemal

    There is no Parliament any more. It has been replaced by a government of occupation.

    1 The five largest quota-holders control more than a third of UK fishing quota

    2 Four of the top five belong to families on the Sunday Times Rich List

    3 The fifth is a Dutch multinational whose UK subsidiary – North Atlantic Fishing Company – controls around a quarter of England’s fishing quota

    4 Around half of England’s quota is ultimately owned by Dutch, Icelandic, or Spanish interests

    5 More than half (13) of the top 25 quota holders have directors, shareholders, or vessel partners who were convicted of offences in Scotland’s £63m “black fish” scam – a huge, sophisticated
    fraud that saw trawlermen and fish processors working together to evade quota limits and land 170,000 tonnes of undeclared herring and mackerel

    6 One of the flagships of the “Brexit flotilla” – which sailed up the Thames in 2016 to demand the UK’s exit from the EU – is among the UK’s 10 biggest quota-holders

    7 Around 29% of UK fishing quota is directly controlled by Rich List families. Some of these families have investments in dozens of other fishing companies, meaning companies holding 37% of UK quota are wholly or partly owned by these Rich List families

    Indeed. MOre evidence that any "brexit" in the hands of the tory scum of Blairite filth is a scam; a ruse to deny the UK it's VETO whilst everything else remains unchanged.

    In a way what ever happens this week is immaterial. There has been no negotiation on Security and Defense, and this has not been reported. Why? Because we are not leaving the EU Defense union. Tories have sold the UK down the river completely.

    In what way? To withdraw the UK from the EU Defense Union? Oh no, that will never be discussed, only advanced hence why the Paras were under Belgium command in exercises recently despite officially (allegedly) being not in the EU now.

    Is it possible that you are confusing NATO forces here. SHAPE, the nato HQ is in Brussels. Not all regional exercises are led by the EU. He command of specific exercises held under SHAPE is rotated between member states of NATO. Except for France who is a non participating member.

    No not at all.

    Dig around on here. You will note the little picture top right.


    Sept 2020.


    The exercises were NOT military though. They were joint exercises as beaten up protestors and the like. All of the military hardware was supplied by the UK, and badged up as EUFOR.

    Interesting. The Commander is an Austrian Maj Gen and his Chief of Staff is Hungarian.
    The Para COMPANY could be on a jolly from anywhere. 16 Bde or one of the 4 Para reservist companies?
    There is a commitment for NATIO reserves to be used after all.
    Not clear where they come from or who commands them but a Company training deployment, with a NATO remit seems most likely.

    Looking at the make up of this multi national force, it seems more like a UN peace keeping force. Will they all be required to wear sky blue berets or pink ones, if they ever deploy for real?
