Maybe Captain Birdseye will be Boris' new Fish Minister with fish fingers on every school menu

Birdseye was an actual person. Found that out the other day. Pioneer in frozen foods. Not sure his rank is real. Perhaps a faker like "Capt" Peacock in Are You Being Served?

So was Pugwash.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

Good point however the EU doesn't have a free market for many of the service industries where we are strong and I believe that includes legal work so your lawyer would not be able to move to Europe and practice law easily.

Funny that free market for manufactured goods and raw materials which suits the Germans, free market for agricultural produce which suits the French when it comes to our strength service industries no such luck.

It's almost as if it was a stitch up so that we paid and got very little back.

Glad we have left.

The Brit law firms are all over the EU. They of course use qualified lawyers in their jurisdiction. You may have noticed that British lawyers arenít used to Napoleonic law.

The accounting firms however benefit from IFRS so itís easier for Brits to travel. Or used to be.

Only just starting to delve into this entire Napoleonic legal system malarkey and it is fascinating. In many ways perhaps one of the reasons why our Anglo-Saxon sensitivities appear to clash so often with European accepted ways of doing things. Perhaps a far bigger impact on cultures and expectations than people realise? I confess to hardly knowing much about it at all at the start of this entire Brexit debate/debacle.

I do wonder how Brexit will impact on wider global commercial contract law though give how English dominates in that field.

4 years of haggling is hardly rushed and we still haven't done a deal.

If we do let's see the detail before we decide if it's a good or bad deal.

Enquiries are already being mooted into this prospective suez type debacle.

There is bound to be focus on those 4 years and why conservative governments ignored their officials advice that transition and exit arrangements were to be completed before Article 50.

It seems that hardly anything was done since 2016 except ritual abuse of the EU.

Sigh

We wanted the EU to engage in multiple stream talks they were the ones who slowed everything down and insisted they could not discuss a trade deal until the withdrawal agreement had been finalised.

You will need to explain the rules to the fish as they tend to swim about with their friends and might inadvertently stray outside UK waters.

Will we Also be bringing back the compulsory eating of fish on Friday as many people especially kids don't eat fish at all.

If the EU to do a deal with Iceland and take the cod that comes here, alongside putting high tariffs on our fish we will have to learn to love pollack, bream, whiting, etc. Plus cuttlefish and many things most of us have never eaten. That'll go down well at tea time when the kids ask for fish fingers.

The EU could offer to put golden rails in the channel tunnel, accept tariffs on their exports to us whilst none on our exports to them, accept a 100-mile fishing exclusion zone covering the French coast and allow us to diverge at will from their standards and some here would still say it was a bad deal.

So don't hold your breath. EU bad. Deal bad. No-deal good.

In my opinion that would be great - we are far too blinkered in our choice of seafood, for sustainability as much as anything
