Yes, it’s rare for a Middle Eastern or anyone from that region to get into Parliament and you’ve got this clown representing us.

no deal Brexit will annihilate UK farmers and fishing fleets. former cabinet secretary told me -“nothing is forever”. It’s a matter of fact that 70% of fish caught in UK waters is sold to EU and 70% of fish consumed in UK is from Norway/Iceland waters. Complicated for 0.1% of GDP

The modern human relationship with eating fish is often nothing but stupid. Mostly based on the fashion of the day rather than something sensible like sustainability or even taste.

Anecdotally, my grand father used to land huge (by today's standards) Sea Bass only to throw them back in the sea as no one ate them. This at a time when food was often short

Nowadays that same fish species will set you back a good £30 per kg.

If there is to be a positive future for the fishing industry and the fish themselves then the whole human relationship with the sea and it's life needs a massive rethink. A positive change based on local availability and most importantly sustainability.

We are living longer, healthier than our grandparents pbecause we have food security. We eat more cereal and protein year round than any time in our human history because of globalization.
It's not all about German car makers or American soya its about tariff free progression for EVERYBODY.

Fk Brexit and the threats to food and pharma for the false threat of "negative" immigration, its 2020, its about the interconnectivity brought on by the internet and world peace created by inter-dependency.

Seeing as we are using sweeping statements.

We certainly eat more than our grandparents and so many are obese, creating a ticking time bomb.

We are angrier and less happy than previous generations who were much more social, polite and friendly than people nowadays.

Compared to grandparents, we are not as fit, sporty, outdoors orientated and instead sit on phones and computers indoors and alone.

Community cohesion and good neighbourliness has been replaced with living among strangers we do not say hello too or make eye contact with.

We are in the middle of a global pandemic.

We are polluting more than ever, everyone in a family has a car and we are destroying the planet, wasting food and energy, buying stuff we do not need and littering the country and sea with plastic bottles and fast food packaging.

Politically, today is toxic, compared to our grandparents era in uk for example, and we are more divided than ever with the internet allowing us to hate people all over the world and our neighbours, for voting differently.

Just for balance, plus granda and gran haha.

My grandparents were wonderful people and I am sure many here had or have great grandparents.

Living longer does not necessarily mean living happier or better quality lives too.

Speaking to older people all the time, living longer can often suck.

Best get a deal then.

Why did farmers and fishermen vote leave?

Having control of your own waters and land and selling to others .....madness.

The EEC was set up to enhance trade and the UK never signed up to a new EU political super state...it's about economic co-operation, not centralizing power in Brussels.

Many people feel that way and voted accordingly, especially farmers regarding hostility to the CAP and fishermen on where and how they can fish in the EU.

Posting brexit Britain or Fook brexit, years after the peoples vote, is a sign of repeating the same silly mantra and a sign of madness.

It's done, make it work and stop refusing to accept democracy, you teary Trumps.

Many of you told us jezza and Abbott were the answer, lmao.

You boasted about both Trumps victory and the Leave victory away back when, now, understanding the consequences, you refute both.

You and your ilk persistently whine about 'alternative opinions' and at the same time whine about opinions that go against yours, its laughable.

Also, to disagree with your previous generations being more social and harmonious, their generation were conscripted, you remember, the whole WW2 thing.

Because like you they’re stupid idiots that had absolutely no idea what they voted for and now they’re crying to the media constantly about a no deal completely annihilating their industries.

Naah, some posters know when this thread is gonna go into a lull and then purport to take a break at that time.

With Trump defeated and the dragons head well and truly chopped off by Osawatomie Joe Biden there's never been a better time to take a step back and watch developments for a while.

The UK was at the forefront of setting up the political institutions TBAB. Over the years it was also politically convenient (unlike other member states) for the UK government to devolve/offset a host of competencies to the EU.

In regard to fishing, this is a great forensic thread detailing the UK/EU relationship over the last 40 years:

The UK has spent more money fighting Covid-19 than almost all comparable countries but still languishes towards the bottom of league tables of economic performance in 2020 and deaths caused by the virus, according to @FT research.

“ Why not open and staff all the Nightingale hospital capacity they need for CV 19 cases and get the rest of the NHS back to full capacity for everything else? No need to scare us with the idea the NHS will not cope.”

- all together now gang “BECAUSE THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH NHS STAFF!!!!!!!!!!”

How an experienced MP continues to parrot such ill-informed twaddle makes me seriously question his competency to hold any level of public office. Unless of course he’s trying to push a political narrative 🤷‍♂️

A sign of things to come.

To avoid red tape/costs, DFDS (ferry transport company) are bypassing the UK, and have set up a new freight ferry route from Rosslaire to Dunkirk.
