He seems like a nice bloke. It's hard not to feel sorry for him.

Since 2016 the Brexit arguments have all been philosophical and abstract. Tonight at 11:30 the country enters the realm of empirical Brexit science.

Let's see how the abstract theories hold out.

As with all big changes there will be winners and loosers, fisherman were some of the biggest loosers when we joined for instance. 

While that's not nice for those effected, it is only right that the largest democratic vote in this countrys history is upheld, or they should never have held it in the first place, but since they did, let's look forward to a bright future. 

Happy New year 👍

Without wishing to derail this topic, I have always thought the fuss about UK commercial fishing rights is a bit misguided.

The following suggests we all have to eat a lot more UK caught fish.

Extract from a Parliamentary Report published 7/9/20,
"A parliamentary report published today has found that some 75 per cent of fish caught in the UK is exported, mostly to the European Union, while the majority of fish eaten in the UK is imported."

Thinks that is something to do with the type of fish caught in the U.K. waters not being to the British tastes yet eaten in the EU. Caught does not necessarily mean caught by British fishing boats.

I think if its was more affordable  then people would eat more . I  had my own small boat and fished in the North channel  of the Irish sea , lot of people turn there nose up at Pollock , a very tasty  fish , but up here in Scotland  all the fish shops sell is Haddock , very rare to get a nice bit of Cod .
