Assuming no agreement is reached (my default at this point), what will be the legal status of fisheries in UK and EU waters come January?
It doesn't really matter ... it is toss-up between "paper fish" and real fish.
And to whom will they export the bonny shoals of herring? Japan, Australia, Manx??

Actually, it might. Fishing boats ramming each other is the sort of stuff that starts wars. Unlike, say, disputes over where to clear interest rate swaps.

yeah, like Iceland, then they threatened to let the USSR settle at Kevlavik.

For more than 45 years, the Tories in Westminster have described Scotland’s fishermen as “expendable” in European negotiations, and Theresa May’s withdrawal agreement only reinforces that truth; to Westminster, Scotland’s interests are always expendable.

In the case of Ireland's waters, it has 25% of them and 4% quotas..

Here we go yet again. Britain leading the way in saving Europe from decimation, this time from a virus.

With the help of a couple Irish at Jenner. 

Seems a new UK farmer policy ... turn farms into wetlands and recreation areas... Those sheep have destroyed the uplands, The Lake District has been decimated. Not many people know that.I'm not kidding. One even fell into my well, once.

Of course, where will the beef and poultry be imported from?

There's this agreement between UK and Ireland from years before EU and BREXIT. Free flow of people between our nations.
To get a Dutch passport you have to do exams for Dutch language and stuff about history, culture. I know more that 95% of the population. 

I suppose in Norge they ask who was Knut Haukelid or Jahn Teigen.

And in judo until Munich 1972..the trick is never to annoy the Russians too early .. it just makes them angrier. At least that was Ruska's tactic.He won in the last minute.

No, it does seem clear that England won the race to be the first Western country to agree to take delivery and apply the vaccine. However, since they took no other part in discovering it or producing it, and are in the process of closing their border to the continent, there may be some unique logistical challenges to follow.

This sounds like a variation of True Scotsman..
UK vaccines, China, CCCP, US vaccines ... spoiled for choice.
