If you disagree you should take a trip to Peterhead or Newlyn and spout your ludicrous unsubstantiated assertions on the quays and just see what sort of reception you get!
If the EU decide to put tarrifs on fish caught here and exported there, it is THEM who will be paying extra, not us. The alternative, no fish! Plenty of other customers out there… 27 vs 196, no contest.
You'll have at some time to either put links and facts to your claims or stop posting untruths,so far such links and facts haven't been forthcoming and it's why your claims are regarded as daft guess work,without foundation
FWIW if you'd stood at a pithead when mining was going down the tubes,you'd most likely been torn limb from limb if you spouted that mining was erelevent to the UK,but it didnt stop happening what did happen to mining,and there were a lot more miners than fishermen.
As for tarrifs on fish sold to the EU,if the EU citizens don't think UK fish are worth the extra then they won't buy them,but unless those fish can be sold elsewhere they'll rot.
What makes you think countries outside the EU will be clamouring to buy them especially with no WTO membership?
