{{ So thanks to brexit Scottish fishing is taking a hammering.

'one shellfish exporter had lost £40,000 in a day, with many more losing out due to bureaucratic hold-ups at the border.
Fishing minister Victoria Prentis, appearing before a House of Lords committee, admitted “things are tricky at the moment” but said her team is “working hard” to resolve issues as they arose.
During her appearance Ms Prentis raised eyebrows by telling peers she did not read the fisheries deal when it was published on Christmas Eve because she was “very busy organising the local Nativity trail”.

You couldnt make that up- the fisheries minister never read the fisheries deal, because she was organising a local nativity!

She went to say "it’s true to say that we had, as an industry, dreamed some pretty big dreams and in some cases it’s true to say that we didn’t get everything we asked for."
Before giving as a solution that we just need to eat more fish in the UK!

When the matter was brought up at PMQ'a today Boris' response was-

“It is the policy of the Scottish nationalist party not just to break up the United Kingdom under their hare-brained scheme, but also to take Scotland back into the EU and hand back control of Scottish fisheries to Brussels, thereby throwing away all those opportunities.”

When told this reply was an insult to the fishing community losing money day after day and it was pointed out to him that currently 1/3 of the Scottish fleet is stuck in harbour, and those that are going out are having to land in Denmark to avoid the red tape of Brexit, and the EU is providing a £5 billion fund to EU fisheries to help with the transition, and Ireland was getting £1 billion in aid, Boris replied-

'“Mr Blackford continually advocates the break up of the union with the United Kingdom and he continually advocates going back into the European Union, even though that would be immensely destructive to the Scottish economy, to jobs, to livelihoods, to pensions, to the currency.
As far as I understand it, they’re already spending money in Scotland on indyref2, when they should be getting on with fighting the pandemic, that, I think, is what the people of Scotland want to see."

See a pattern here. only good thing is worse they do in dealing with addressing the problems of Brexit here, and more they simply respond with 'SNP bad, independence bad, EU bad' more likely it is we will become independent! }}

{{ It gets worse! }}

'Exports of Scottish seafood from smaller companies are to be halted for a further five days by the transport company that handles most of the trade.
DFDS stopped groupage exports last week after delays in getting new paperwork for EU border posts in France.
That was due to have resumed now but the company has told customers it will not begin again until next Monday.
Delays are reported by industry sources to have meant a sharp drop in exports - in one company's case, the normal flow of 100 tonnes of seafood per week resulted in only 8.5 tonnes being shipped.
The Groupage Export Service will start again on Monday 18 January, but it will not be an overnight service, Instead, it will take two nights from arrival at Larkhall to reaching the French market - known as "day one for day three".
DFDS acknowledged the "painful" effect of the interruption to exports on its customers.'- BBC News

I thought Brexit was supposed to give fishermen the glorious sunlit uplands? Its beyond ironic that fishermen are the first to suffer.
