DISAPPOINTED – Britain has offered the EU a three year transition period on fisheries.

It’s being reported that EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier is to hold meetings with the heads of the most influential fishing nations in the EU bloc. This is in an attempt to see if there can be any wriggle room from those nations on their fishing redlines.

For months negotiations have been bogged down with EU redlines on fisheries. Lord Frost has said on numerous occasions that the EU needs to respect Britain sovereignty, and that includes our sovereign waters. France, along with other EU nations, continue to push for unrestricted access into Britain’s fish-rich waters. These EU nations also want same quotas even though the waters are being returned to Britain.

One thing which is disappointing and has come to light is that the government have offered the EU a three year transition period on fisheries. The government states that this would see British fishermen’s quotas Increase year on year to nearly double to what they get currently. The government are saying this is so both sides can work out an arrangement on access into Britain’s waters.

What’re your thoughts on this? Should there be a three-year transition on fisheries? With this news coming to light are our fishermen being sold out again?

  1. Boris promised the UK fishermen 100% fishing waters back so a three year transition period is unacceptable.
    The eu say they are prepared for a no deal situation which should include that all eu fishermen would be banned from UK waters.

  2. No, there should not be a three year transition period at all. I can’t believe that Boris Johnson & David Frost have done this to our fishermen/woman. They are selling our fishermen/woman out again which is disgusting. When the UK signed the Withdrawal Agreement, we stipulated the our fishing waters belong to the UK & no other country. If Boris Johnson & David Frost have made a u turn on fisheries, what other u turns are they prepared to make to get a deal. Boris Johnson just wants to save his career & blow to country. When we had the election, Boris kept saying we must get Brexit done, so what is he doing, selling us out again. I have lost all trust & respect for Boris Johnson & I am sure that I am not the only one.

  3. If this is true the Conservative Party is finished as it will show it can’t be trusted with anything from fishing to immigration

  4. It’s a fudge. Sovereignty cannot have a transition period. British fisherman cannot have quotas imposed on them by a foreign power in their own territory. A disgraceful climbdown, if true. Boris cannot be trusted.

  5. l hope this is not true…fishing is Brexit..people have put their trust in You..three years, we have already wasted four years..The EU are laughing at you. If this is true l will never vote in a Election again.
    Boris don’t sell us out please. 😞😠😡

  6. This needs to be fake news. If it’s not then Boris has lost massive amounts of support.
    He needs to withdraw that offer and stick to his guns.
    Best to walk away now rather than get screwed over by EU false promises and sweet talking.

    The Brexit Party, in whatever form it takes gets my vote next time.
