David Frost releases a statement on `brexit negotiations – “Gap still remains around fisheries.”

Lord David Frost, UK Chief Negotiator, said: “We have just completed the ninth Round of our negotiations with the EU about our future relationship. “These were constructive discussions conducted in a good spirit. “In many areas of our talks, although differences remain, the outlines of an agreement are visible.  This is true of most of the core areas of a trade and economic agreement – notably trade in goods and services, transport, energy, social security, and participation in EU programmes.  This has however been true for some time. “I am also encouraged that progress has been possible on a law enforcement agreement and that there has been convergence on the structure of the overall partnership.“In other areas familiar differences remain. On the level playing field, including subsidy policy, we continue to seek an agreement that ensures our ability to set our own laws in the UK without constraints that go beyond those appropriate to a free trade agreement.  There has been some limited progress here but the EU need to move further before an understanding can be reached.  On fisheries the gap between us is unfortunately very large and, without further realism and flexibility from the EU, risks being impossible to bridge.  These issues are fundamental to our future status as an independent country.“I am concerned that there is very little time now to resolve these issues ahead of the European Council on 15 October. “For our part, we continue to be fully committed to working hard to find solutions, if they are there to be found.”

  1. EU have Breached laws in past. They will not accept we’ve left only trade deals to which they refuse an independent state. All they need is our money. Goodbye EU

  2. No surrender Boris or you will end up like labour, dead in the water. Did they give us a three year transition period. Did they FcUK.

    1. We cannot do that overnight. A 3 year extension which gradually increases our allowance seems sensible. It’s vindictive to try and put EU fisherman out of work immediately. Cut down on the super size boats at the same time.

  3. Why do they need a three year transition? They have known for four years we are leaving, they have exploited our waters with their Super trawlers, and these must be refused entry to our waters from January 1st.

    1. Shirley Steele – that is what they did to our fishermen back in the day. I remember fishermen having to burn their boats. We however are much more magnanimous and would come to some arrangement for sure.

  4. Nearly 4 years gone, let them count 3 of them as transitioning time, they don’t fish— they RAPE OUR WATERS. Now is the time to put an end to these overbearing people who think they can walk all over us. Let them try it with Russia or China- they will Blow them out of the Water!!!!
