Brexit trade deal: British fishermen say they feel ‘betrayed’

0

Britain’s coastal towns were at the forefront of political demands during trade negotiations with the European Union.
Fishers had been promised they would take control of the seas around the United Kingdom.
But the deal struck was not what they were expecting, and some say they feel betrayed.

      They knew and they did it anyway. Why? Same reason why Americans voted for a failed casino magnate.
      Hatred and selfishness

      @WeeWeeJumbo – Eventually you’re going to have to get over what was said to you online during the referendum.

    • Joe Cat Reply

      well…. they could have gone 100% for fish.. booted all the EU boats out of our waters and brought the axe down on the EU’s fishing industry… but then we’d have no deal and 500,000 job losses in other industries… plus a bad relationship with the EU. Do you think that’s worth it? Its always been the case if the eu refused any deal that recognised UK sovereignty then we would have done that as a last resort.. but they didnt.. so these things are a negotiation. The government worked hard to get that. Under the deal UK fishermen get 25% fish back over the transition and will likely get even more under a deal where UK buys back more fishing rights for UK fishermen (in recognition its about livelihoods and a way of life and culture rather than + GDP all the time!). One way or the other UK trawlers will be catching a heck of a lot more fish!! We couldn’t fish our waters yet anyway.. we haven’t any boats. Plus let me remind you in case you dont already know.. UK has banned pulse fishing in its waters right now… something we couldn’t do pre brexit. Don’t swallow the negativity rubbish from the remoany sites and rags…

      @WeeWeeJumbo It’s true. Everyone was fueled by greed and their own self-serving vanity. Conservatives lying to the public about anything and everything only to pull the rug out when everything is said and done. That’s Rightism 101. Night of the long knives? Anyone remember that?

    • callaghan728 Reply

      @Joe Cat I agree. The tariff free deal with the EU means our imports will still be cheap, which is far more important than a few fish.

    Project Reality is hitting fast

    • EM 93 Reply

      @Joe Cat ? Look at N.I.; it stil has ties with the EU –> project reality = the UK is not free man. HAHAHAHA I can not wait to see the break up of the UK.

    • Joe Cat Reply

      @EM 93 We can handle that situation… majority of UK is free to trade on its own terms and is not subject to EU control.. and NI is still under UK control, even if it adheres to some standards because both UK and EU accepts this is necessary. There will be no break IN GB because we have ultimate authority unlike the EU over its member states. And the answer for any split request is ……….. no. We already gave a referendum in 2014 results stands and only the PM has authority. SNP can try a ref without permission.. but unionists will just boycott and ignore it… then of course the result means precisely nothing .. either in law or outcome. Just a total waste of money…. So what’s your project reality? The reality that the vast, vast majority of the UK is free to do what it wants? Yes, we can see that….. Farage is happy with it.. we’re happy with it. Now we’ll show you what we’re going to do with it. UK economy is expected to grow fast… of course it will.. we just freed ourselves from a protectionist bloc to access most of the global trade!! DUH… 🙂 And you know what else… Italy might well be next because it is more eurosceptic than the UK. The EU can stop this by being more transparent and inclusive (of the little people) and democratic…. but I doubt it will.

    Good! They deserve the predictable “betrayal” because they were warned that this would happen. They traded their healthcare and many other benefits to help aristocrats avoid paying taxes. “Brilliant” move tory idiots!

    12,000 fishermen out of a total workforce of 34,000,000. 0.1% of GDP (national income) per year, worth only £2 billion to the economy yearly. Yes, this really was a crucial issue on which to hang our national future, wasn’t it?

      They sacrificed the fishermen to save the other parts of economy.

    • Fallout -Clash of Clans Reply

      @MrKh4Ot1k sacrificed more than that as this deal has left NI behind to the EU. then you have Gibraltar left behind to joint control of spain. then you will have a land bidge between Scotland and the EU through Irish reunification. i think the ERGs star chamber are actually run by the wombles of wimbledon just reading page 405 of the deal and agreeing trade in goods but ignoring trade in services. im not a leave or remain voter but i see things how they are. I’m just along for the ride like most people.

  14. Grave Peril Reply

    they get an increase quota each year for the next 5.5 years when the quota is then renegotiated
    the only other option was to put every french fisherman out of a job so there had to be a phase it aproach or france/EU would never have agreed to anything

    • Skindred4life Reply

      France has its own waters. So while their fishing industry would have taken a hit, not “every” fisherman would have lost his job.

      And after watching a few commentators discuss the deal, the EU has so much leverage in the negotiations in 5 years, that you can basically assume this is going to be status quo from now on.

      UK fishermen got sold a rotting corpse of a unicorn. Lessons to be learned here: do research before voting for a known liar.

    • Grave Peril Reply

      @Skindred4life well only just over 5k people did vote for him last time, Thing is they are all liars

    • Skindred4life Reply

      @Grave Peril Only 5k people voted for Boris last time? Thats news to me.

      Do you mean fishermen? As far as I remember british fishing communities voted overwhelmingly for Brexit and the Conservatives.

      This is “the will of the people” as many loved to say. So … enjoy.

    • Grave Peril Reply

      @Skindred4life sorry my mistake 25,351 people voted for him, UK democracy at work, I was mixing up the 2017 election with 2019 and his majority with the actual number of people that voted for him so the 5k number was a mess sorry its 25k

    • Zendra Gallhauser Reply

      @Marc Temura and how would they have gotten a deal from the EU were they could still sell their fish in the EU, but that would have hurt EU fishermen?

    • Marc Temura Reply

      @Zendra Gallhauser NO, that would hurt French fisherman which still have right to fish in English waters for the next 12 years. Because the French don’t understand word conservation, think that missing in French vocabulary. I would started creating fish ponds around the world to make for all the fish that they can’t catch.

    • Zendra Gallhauser Reply

      @Marc Temura that doesn’t answer my question if Boris made no deal with the EU, who would eat British fish?

  32. News Reply

    If you’re going to spend 35% of your time fishing in French waters and have your ship re-fitted in Holland and moan about the immediate payoffs after Brexit, then you need to seriously reconsider your thinking process. That is one third you spend your time in EU waters. Have some long term vision. You might enjoy your dependence on other nations but it makes you strategically weak and your immediate comments make you appear rather inept. The fisheries deal is gobshyte but we’re out. Now is not the time for weakness or giving up if you want to regain more control of YOUR fisheries. Gee, I can’t believe I have to type this comment to grown men.

    Who sold Britain’s fishing rights? Privately licensed fishermen? Government? I am curious

    • Fallout -Clash of Clans Reply

      just a question but how long was it sold for? un International law of the seas say you can only rent it out for 1 year. how many years has it been sold for under the CFP that no longer exists in the UK?

    • sunsetdreamer68 Reply

      Fishing rights were never sold, individual companies sold EU quotas. Those quotas no longer exist in UK waters. This new deal replaces it, giving EU ships a quota of 75% (down from 88%) to reduce to 40% by the end of 5 years. The only really bad bit is that part of that 75% includes a whopping 90% of cod in UK waters!

    I’m so sorry for the English fishermen. They’ve been had and lied to by Farage and the Tories. They’ve been mere pawns for the English ruling class to scrap the protection of EU membership and once again get unlimited power over the English plebs.
    Welcome to project reality. This was never about fish.

    I remember reading about this before the vote. These fisherman were the spine of Brexit. Everyone, but they themselves knew they were about to get screwed. Always the people at the bottom getting screwed by far right politics, will they ever learn.

    Why are they crying? Their spokesmen forced Johnson to agree a deal, they said they would not be able to sell their fish into the EU if there was no deal

    what is it with this rag, i’ve never seen them run any story but a negative one about BREXIT

    have they made a deal with the western european establishment to oppose BREXIT in return for not being banned ?

    The EU Parliament has banned Pulse Fishing, A good first step.The threat of unsustainable fishing practices is however increasing as trawlers from all over the world look
    to increase catch of all species. The betrayal of UK fishermen by government should now reinforce their determination to take a European approach including colleagues from France, Eire, Norway and Holland together with International Organizations who share your aims.
