    Jersey's foreign minister hits back at 'disproportionate' French threat to CUT OFF electricity to the island in a post-Brexit row over fishing rights
    • Ian Gorst, Jersey's foreign minister, has hit back at 'disproportionate' French threat to cut off electricity to the island in a row over fishing rites
    • He said the row boils down to just 17 licences issued by Jersey on Friday last week as post-Brexit trading rules came into force
    • He said fishermen had failed to provide enough data about their historic fishing routes, so the licences had restricted their movements
    • 'When fishermen provide the evidence, we will provide the licences,' he 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."

    Britain can take them to court. Oh hang on, there is no court, the French can now do as they please.

    Brexit has its advantages.

      We will just have to invade them again


      I predict a new supply cable in Jersey's future.

        Seems the French have sent gunships and 100 little boats like a reverse Dunkirk.

        Here on the beeb - oh sorry it isn't https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-57003069

        Two Royal Navy ships are patrolling waters around Jersey and a French naval vessel is heading towards the island, as fishermen protest over their post-Brexit rights.

        About 60 French and Jersey boats are blocking the island's St Helier port, with a freight vessel unable to leave.
        on the Slaver? - a bit more but no cigar - https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/...fishing-rights

        Two British naval gunboats have arrived off the coast of Jersey as about 80 French boats also gathered at the port in St Helier in protest over post-Brexit rules on fishing rights.

        HMS Severn and HMS Tamar were deployed a mile off the coast of Jersey while observing the French flotilla amassing at about 6am south of the Channel Island’s capital before it headed into the port just before 7am.
        now in the Fail we have the full story

        'This is like an invasion': Now Macron sends military boat racing towards Jersey for stand-off with Royal Navy warships - after 100 French fishermen BLOCKADE harbour and surround British vessels in row over post-Brexit fishing
        • HMS Severn and HMS Tamar were sent from Portsmouth 'as a precaution' in ratcheting up of row with France
        • The Royal Navy ships are roaming Channel after Paris warned yesterday it could cut off electricity to Jersey
        • PM deployed the ships after intelligence said 100 French boats could blockade Saint Helier Thursday morning
        • French maritime minister yesterday accused Jersey of dragging its feet over licences for French fishing boats
        • David Sellam, head of the Normandy sea authority, said: 'We're ready for war. We can bring Jersey to its knees'

        I would ask the boats to disperse if not ban them from having fishing licences.

          The cheese eating surrender monkeys celebrated Napoleon yesterday.

          They should remember 3rd July 1940.
