BREXITEER MP OWEN PATTERSON FORCIBLY EXPRESSES- THE UK MUST NOT CONSENT TO STAYING IN THE COMMON FISHERIES POLICY

BREAKING BRITANNIA NEWS

Brexiteer Conservative MP Owen Paterson argued the UK must refuse to be forced by the EU into consenting to stay a part of the Common Fisheries Policy as part of a Brexit trade deal. He explained the EU’s fishing controls as a”disaster” as he said the UK has to be free to form its own fishing strategy beyond 2020. He explained:”The Common Fisheries Policy is a biological, environmental, economic and social disaster which can’t be reformed.

“You will need to balance the precautionary principle and the manner in which you implement it with the invention principle.

“We should be constantly looking to innovate, to bring in better technology which will produce more food on less land and provide a better environment.”

Mr Paterson insisted that implementing modern technology are the best method to ensure the UK Government addresses its environmental targets.

The Tory MP then discussed the importance of the next 11 months for Britain and how Prime Minister Boris Johnson should go forward talking a future trade agreement with the European Union.

He explained:”We now have 11 weeks to establish the way we proceed and to really take back control.

“We have already talked about fisheries, agriculture and we need to get back to the fundamental battle here, which is being consumers and manufacturers.

“There are enormous gains to customers if we allow them access to goods from all over the world at world prices.

“That will force the European Union in the discussions to recognise that if they do not match world quality and prices then monster £94bn surplus in goods will shrink.”

Mr Paterson closed by insisting the UK should have the chance to consume goods from all around the world rather than solely in the EU.

The Tory MP also emphasised it was important to give the consumers in Britain the power for the future of the country.

Mr Paterson also issued a defiant message to the EU on the importance of a new fishing trade policy when talking on Radio 4’s Today Programme.

This includes as BBC business correspondent Simon Jack predicted”an almighty punch-up” between the UK and prominent EU member-states like France, Belgium and the Netherlands over fishing access.

Fishing is thought to be one of the top priorities in the discussions, with the plan to strike a new deal by July.
