    Surely if this were allowed to stand, we would not have left the EU ! This sort of muddled thinking by our Government, seems to be general. THE PEOPLE VOTED TO LEAVE THE EU ! You don’t seem to have got this message ! WHY ?

    We are a maritime Nation, our territorial waters should revert to our exclusive control as recognised by International Law. This right was last fully enforced, I believe in 1982 during the Falklands War when an exclusion zone was established without international objection. We have this right to say who does what in our waters. Why should we accept vessels from countries not even sharing a common boundry fishing in our waters, particularly when their catch is not landed in a UK port, effectively stealing fish from our waters. There have even been cases where oyster beds have been destroyed by Spanish vessels trawling through privately owned and managed “farms”, and the Law coukd do nothing leaving the owner’s unable to claim compensation. Just because our waters are defined by a line on a chart and has no physical border, it is a border none the less, and should be treated as such, controlled as if a land border by our Navy, and those fishing illegally have their vessels impounded and retained by the British Courts. Our fishermen are not a bargaining chip to be cast aside, a definite Red Line in my view, and a deal breaker. We have our traditional waters restored or we walk away and end this protracted process once and for all.

    Let us take back our fishing grounds.

    • I fully agree with Jim Stanley on this issue regarding our fishing grounds, and they are taking not only our fish but also taking away money that is rightfully ours. This is one of the most shameful things a British government has done to its own people. There is nothing to negotiate about, this wrong must be put 100% right.

THE WATERS AROUND THE BRITISH ISLES BELONG TO THE BRITISH PEOPLE AND ARE NOT A BARGAINING TOOL FOR YOU AND YOUR ILK

    We are entitled to our own waters for our own fishing. Given how greedy every other nation within the EU corridors have been the sooner we establish our own territories the better!

    Keep our fisheries or OUR fishermen.
