    Pants are no good unless they stick to the wall after you've taken them off.

    So what that's about is giving Grimsby "Free Port" status. A free port is an area excluded from custom and trade laws of the country that its in.

    There are a lot of "Free Ports" ( sometimes called Special Economic Zones ) already in the world, including Liverpool & Southampton.

    So it's not stupid, or turkeys voting for Xmas, but a practical step to give Grimsby an economic advantage.

    Of course, the main advantage they will have is that they will actually have some fish to catch. Unlike the Danes.

    That will work for IMPORTS, but not for EXPORTS.

    I am sure other fishing towns who voted for Brexit will be very happy for EU imports to flow in easily via Grimsby.

    So they voted for Brexit but don't want to suffer the consequences of not being in the Customs Union and the Single Market?

    A bit like Wales & the South West voted for Brexit, but still want their EU subsidies.
