The Scottish Salmon Producers Organisation (SSPO) said the Treasury figures for January underestimated foreign sales by much as 97 percent, meaning the extent of the problems for Scottish fishing exports post-Brexit may not be as serious as first thought.

Or, you know, the exact opposite of what your headline says, Subby.

Lol fark you UK.  You did this to yourself and deserve all of it.

What complete nonsense. Boris Johnson's brilliant Brexit deal was a triumphant victory for British fisherman. Would he have worn a fish tie to announce the deal if it was rotten? I think not.

He certainly showed the EU. Sacrificing financial services for fishing, like that

And it's about a story in the Express - so it's a lie about a lie about a lie.

Without EU controls, they will quickly fish out the salmon, and then they'll have nothing - like God always intended.
If they hadn't colonized and robbed the rest of the world, the Brits would never have had anything.
Soon, they will be back in their natural state. Poor, dirty, stupid, and bounding around the bog in the fog with their buns painted blue.

Kind of brilliant of Boris...cover up the flaws in the plan with a deep layer of incompetence...no way to tell just how bad things are...

Their exports are fine, it was a government reporting error.
UK fish stocks, at least for freshwater fish were already bust in the 1800s, they have been managing them intensely for almost 200 years.
Pretty sure 100% of exported salmon is farmed in Scotland. I do wonder how they compete with salmon farming in South America and elsewhere where I imagine doing so is cheaper.

So this is how 1984 happens. They cut themselves off from the EU and keep doubling down on excuses until eventually the chocolate ration is increased to 30g from 35 grams.
 
2021-04-23 8:35:06 AM  
Even if the 97% was accurate at least they'd have a number.  Instead the fisheries have no idea what happened to their exports on top of all the red tape they're already dealing with.

Not if Boris can privatize the NHS.

America has problems too, but whatabouting them won't help you solve any of yours.
Sometimes it's good for an adult to not try to change a subject that he finds uncomfortable, or that requires self-criticism on his part.

This. A simple account mistake did not count all the fish that was sold to the EU. There is no problem. But too many take it as an excuse to bash the UK to make themselves think that they is smrt.

Your original post was nothing more than an ahistorical and blasphemous attack on the UK while rejoicing in the hope for further harm to be inflicted upon it. You made nothing even close to a substantive point that anyone would care to whatabout.

Or to put it more plainly for you, fark off and go piss up rope.

Not sure you're really the person to be doling out advice of what's good for an adult if this is the sort of deep-seated bitterness you're clinging to:

I think that's off the cards since since Trump lost his job. Would be interesting to see if Biden insists on it!
