A bit fishy

This popped up in my inbox recently. It’s a petition from Democracy Unleashed, which seems to be connected to Open Britain, an anti-Brexit organisation.

I have to say I admire Open Britain’s generosity.

My recollection is that British fishermen voted over 90% to leave the EU – that’s including Scottish fishermen. Now they’re complaining about “delays caused by more red-tape and form-filling since Brexit.”

What did they expect? All the benefits of coming out of the Common Fisheries Policy, but keeping all the benefits of staying in the Single Market?

“We’ve been made fools of by the Westminster government.”

Yep.

“Fishing communities didn’t cause this problem.”

Maybe not on their own. But most of them were among the 52% who voted Leave. So they share responsibility.
