The vast majority of fisherman voted to leave the EU despite repeated warnings on red tape, import/export delays and the potential effects on trading with its largest customer.

I'm sorry BUT there is no excuse for not having cash reserves to cope - fishing and food retail has not been affected in any meaningful way by Covid; indeed, demand has grown.

Zero excuses and zero sympathy!

If a politician says something, more fool the believers, these people are pathological liars, they need to be, to be where they are.
Compensation payouts can involve up to six to eight departments, each one is there to figure out ways not to pay it.

No Sane person believes a word Johnson utters regarding Scotland, but we pay a big whack to the BBC for honest journalism. It's time we had a return for our money.

If the Brexit voting UK fishermen have their boats tied up, unable to trade, perhaps they could be given a loaf of bread, some cheese slices, a few frubes, three apples, two carrots, a tin of beans and three bananas to get them through the week.

We should not be exporting 70% of UK fish/shellfish and importing 75% of what we eat. We should not be eating Vietnamese and Honduran Prawns, or small tasteless Canadian/US Lobsters brought thousands of air-polluting miles, & probably too small to be landed legally if UK caught! Come on Supermarkets - you killed off the local fishmongers, do the right thing & start buying/selling British!

“ Mr Eustice said there had been "teething problems" but added that he believed once the industry was "used to using the paperwork"”

That will be part of the £7 bn EU admin costs for nothing in return paid for by the UK.

Imagine: £200 bn to have the EU control UK borders, to pay higher prices for fish and other EU goods, while making UK exports less competitive.

Who would vote for that?

Someone was way out of his depth because he is poor at looking at the small print in the details - Brexit agreement.

No 2 guesses who is to blame but it is not the E.E.C. ! They are only protecting their trading interests and overall got by far the better deal from a no win for either side situation.For that it was the formidable skills of M.Barnier as an astute negotiator they had to thank.

#RRP.."Initial teething problems"...No,these are permanent problems,this is what happens when you leave the Single Market & Customs Union,the Tories have taken the UK backwards.
Instead of making trade easier,they've thrown hurdles in the way,they've removed the smooth trading relationship we had with EU countries,so "teething problems" they are not,this is the permanent situation.

For all the years that we were members it was only a couple of years where FoM from the EU led to higher numbers coming to work in the UK

Of course it was. The three million EU citizens living in the UK were a figment of Brexiters' imaginations, weren't they? Well, according to the Home Office, by April 2020, those figments made 3.4 million applications to stay here!
