    Bunch of pirates set fire to Dunkirk & Calais.


    'Want to keep your waters? Then keep your fish!' French fishermen blockade lorries carrying UK produce amid fury over 'sham' Brexit fishing deal
    • Over 100 French fisherman barred lorries carrying fish to the UK on Thursday
    • Protesters stopped the trucks that had travelled to ports at Dunkirk and Calais
    • French fisherman are complaining over the lack of licences to fish in UK waters

    Many of the skippers struggling to obtain a licence were unable to meet the British demand for electronic data showing they had fished in UK waters during the five years leading up to Britain's 2016 referendum on EU membership, Margolle said.

    Britain maintained an evidence-based approach to licensing EU vessels using information supplied by the European Commission, the British government's Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) said.

    'We do not recognise the figures that have been shared by the French fishing industry and consider this reaction to be unjustified.

    'Our concerns regarding the protest action have been raised directly with the French authorities', a DEFRA spokesman said.
    "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."

    I want to see the hand of history on his collar.
