EU-UK Trade Discussions 2020

February 5th, 2020, 7:38 pm

What is important for both sides? Will there be enough time?

More content for a change, less rants. Gracias.

I think fisheries is smoked screens, a red herring and a cod. To whom will UK sell its fish to in the event of oversupply?

And what about chlorinated (oops, I mean chlorine-washed) chicken?

If there's oversupply, we can always fish less. That's what being in control means.

I would love to see the UK impose a five years' moratorium on any fishing in its coastal waters. Give the fisheries time to recover.

Something fishy here. Will you pay the fishermen to stay at home?
Will there be fish export to EU??

Won't that be a cod?

Check the demographiics; @ISayMoo take note
The UK consumes about 115,000 tonnes of cod each year. Only 15,000 tonnes comes from the North Sea, with the rest imported mainly from the fertile grounds in the Barents Sea and around Norway and Iceland. But the species is of huge symbolic importance to the UK fishing industry, which employs about 24,000 people – more than half of them working in Scotland.

But it's more symbolic than economic.
