At the same time, the UK government proposed to fast-track empty supermarket food lorries returning to Europe to reload, amid concerns that disruption at ports could lead to food supply shortages,

why do they need to fast track an empty lorry? If it's empty, customs operations shouldn't take time ?

Damn.  Who could have possibly foreseen that there was a downside to Brexit?

Much of their exports are to restaurants, or wholesalers to restaurants, and many are closed or restricted. A blame game is being played.

Ooh.  Didn't see that one coming...

Scottish fishermen threaten to dump rotten shellfish outside British parliament

Quote

To get fresh produce to European markets, logistics providers now have to summarise the load, giving commodity codes, product types, gross weight, number of boxes and value, plus other details. Errors can mean longer delays and French importers have also been hit by the red tape.

Fishermen in Scotland have stopped sending their boats out to fish. The Scottish government says the disruption has cost the industry millions of pounds in lost contracts, and meant lower prices at market.

The opposition Liberal Democrat party said the chaos was costing the industry 1 million pounds a day.

come on Vogie, what's SNP ?? is it Scot or not,  if you blame the SNP you are blaming Scotland thus Scots.

He seems to think that Scotland had the SNP forced upon it by the devil incarnate.

To the brexiteer, the people of Scotland have no will.

 

In PMQ's yesterday, the PM's contempt for the SNP was quite unbelievable. He had been told off by the speaker in a response to the Labour leader but when it came to the SNP leader nothing was said, brings the speaker's neutrality into question.

Bojo's contempt will do more to further the cause than the SNP.

Thanks for discussing me to other forum members, however, I didn't hear you complaining when John Bercow and Ian Blackford were embracing each other in the HoC, and to suggest that Sir Lindsay Hoyle is other than impartial is farcical.

Are you really trying to say the speaker does not recognise contempt when it is staring him in the face, of course ignoring it would be seen by some as being impartial, and we are all perfectly aware of who they are.

This is not about what the speaker recognises as contempt, this is about the remainers imagining him being contemptious. Don't worry Sandy it is human nature to be biased, sometimes if someone says what you don't want to hear it may be considered as prejudiced when in fact they are just being honest.

But I think most people would agree that no-one on gods earth was as biased as John Bercow, why would an ex labour MP like Lindsey Hoyle be biased towards the Tories, I just hope now you can realise how the leavers felt when Bercow tried to stifle a democratic referendum.

So it appears that although the fishermen are not happy that they were sold a pig in a poke by the city spivs, the fish themselves are happier. 

 

This mix of insolence and arrogance from our third rate politicians is par for the course for the Nasty Party, unfortunately.

Tory MPs from fishing areas criticise government over Brexit red tape

Quote

During an urgent question on fishing, Eustice heard sustained criticism and concern over the situation from a number of Tories, including Douglas Ross, the leader of the Scottish Conservatives. Ross said he had been contacted by fishing workers in his Moray constituency and around Scotland, “raising their serious concerns and frustrations about the current situation”.

More than half a dozen English Conservative MPs representing coastal areas also expressed worries, with Steve Double, the MP for St Austell and Newquay in Cornwall, saying his local fleets “benefit little from this deal”.

Sheryll Murray, the South East Cornwall MP, quoted a local fishing business owner who said border red tape was “posing a real threat to his business”.

Funny how the Remainers and euros are all complaining about UK fishermen's problems and now appear to be supporting fishermen. Only a couple of weeks ago they were all telling us that the fishing industry was only 0.1% of our economy and not worth bothering about.

Why are remainers suddenly obsessed by fishing, they were telling us just over a month ago to give all our fish to the EU because that was the only way to get a good deal, now all of a sudden the have gone from Bitter Lemons to a Fisherman Friend.
