BBC: "Fishermen Attacked By French Say 'Bring In The Navy'"

Discussion in 'Current Affairs' started by soleil, Oct 11, 2012.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. If the reports are to be believed the French do have a point ... while they are only allowed to fish in that area for a few months a year the Brits can fish there all the year round. It doesn't make a lot of sense particulary when sustainability of fish stocks is taken into account.
     
  2. Just more EEC crap ?
     
  3. I find it a little ironic that the French are moaning about what is left of the UK fishing fleet are having some of what they regard as their fish.They and the Spanish have been plundering our waters for years with impunity.

    Love the picture in the wail of what appears to be bootnecks labelled as fishery protection. Why do they bother?
     
  6. The Mail or the booties?
