Fishing for Leave released its brutal assessment after ExpresscoThe UK reported that a compromise between UK negotiator Lord David Frost and his EU counterpart Michel Barnier was in sight Fishing rights have been a key sticking point, Britain wanting quotas to be negotiated on an annual basis and Brussels demanding concrete assurances on post-Brexit access to UK waters

It now appears that the finer details of the quotas can be postponed to a later date, allowing EU fishermen to continue operating in UK fishing waters from 1 January 2021

Fishing for Leave, which played a leading role in the 2016 referendum campaign, used its official Facebook and Twitter pages to respond to Expresscol’s history of the UK

And he condemned the idea in a message addressed directly to the prime minister, saying: « If kicking us in the tall grass is real vdissappointing

« We watched & wait because you said the right things & has held firm so far @BorisJohnson

With less than two months to go until the end of the transition period, there is pressure on both sides to reach a deal

Conservative MP Daniel Kawczynski was among those who warned Mr. Johnson against compromise on fishing

Sir John, professor at the University of Strathclyde, said: “For a while after the EU referendum, it seemed that the lack of Brexit support in Scotland had failed to move the public opinion on independence

« Over time, however, the pursuit of Brexit has weakened the opinion of many on the merits of the union

« For a significant number of people in Scotland, independence within the EU has become more attractive than being part of a UK that is outside the EU

« This may not have been the wish or intention of those who advocated leaving the EU, but that does not mean that they can afford to ignore the apparent consequences »

Continuing Brexit undermines support for Scotland’s retention in the UK, says study examining public opinion across the country

Before the pandemic, everyone who switched to a pro-independence view had a positive opinion of the EU, study finds

Professor Sir John Curtice and Ian Montagu also found that most Scots were pessimistic about the consequences of Brexit

The Scottish Center for Social Research has analyzed data from Scottish Social Attitudes surveys conducted in recent years

The results of the 2019 survey were published at the end of September this year, covering the period between April 2019 and March 2020

Among those who would vote Stay in another referendum on the EU, support for Scottish independence fell from 44% in 2016 to 57% in the latest survey

By contrast, among those who would vote to Quit in another European referendum, the proportion of supporters of independence fell over the same period from 45% to 39%

The survey also found that 18% believe the UK economy would fare better after Brexit, while 43% believe the Scottish economy would improve under independence

Brexit trade talks have led to bitter feuds between UK and France as fishermen prepare ‘senseless’ retaliation

EU and UK have yet to reach compromise on fisheries as post-Brexit transition period draws to a close

Brussels negotiator Michel Barnier has warned the UK that it will be shut out of European markets if it does not open up UK fishing grounds and accept a level playing field in regulation

The UK has tried to persuade the EU to make concessions, but the bloc’s coastal countries have so far pressured M Barnier so that he respects his initial requests

One of the main reasons Leave won the 2016 referendum was the prospect of the UK taking sole control of its waters

M Deas added: « Whatever the short-term reactions to any new arrangement on the French side, there are businesses on both sides of the Channel that depend on the fish trade and I think that trade would stabilize pretty quickly. p>

« When the UK lost access to Icelandic fishing grounds in the 1970s, it didn’t take long for large quantities of Icelandic cod to be sold in Humberside markets

« We have been working for decades with French, Belgian, Dutch, Danish and Irish fishermen to try to turn the CFP into something better

« But the conditions of access to the EEC put the UK at a disadvantage from the start and UK industry now sees it as an opportunity to reset the agreements as an independent coastal state

As I said, an agreement is available, but it involves a move on the EU side on quota shares and a more equal relationship in the future « 

There is a deal to be made between the UK and the EU on fishing rights, said a UK-based fisheries chief following disastrous warnings from his French counterparts

Fishermen in Boulogne and Calais warned yesterday they were ready to block British fish to prevent them from being sold in their country if the EU signs a trade deal barring them from entering British waters at the end of the year

Barry Deas, managing director of the National Federation of Fishermen’s Organizations (NFFO), told Expresscouk: « I believe that a deal that would give French fishermen access to fishing in UK waters, outside of the 12-mile limit, is proposed to the EU in ongoing negotiations

« But the downside is that France and the EU more generally will have to switch to quota shares to guarantee this arrangement

« In the Channel, the UK’s share of the cod quota is 9% and France’s share is 84% ​​

« For Celtic Sea haddock the UK share is 10% and France’s share is 66% In both cases UK share should be around 50 % « 

Boris Johnson has been warned that any perception that he « sells » the industry under a trade deal with the EU will lead to a furious backlash from UK fishermen

Fishing for Leave released its blunt assessment after ExpresscoThe UK has signaled a compromise between UK negotiator Lord David Frost and his EU counterpart Michel Barnier is in sight

Brexit supporters have been enraged by a petition to force the Prime Minister to extend the transition period by one year, as thousands of signatories say the COVID crisis is reason enough to ask for more time in the EU

Online petition aims to collect 100,000 signatures to push the government to demand an extension and hold a referendum on any trade deal

The appeal, which has so far been supported by 10,000 people, comes amid ongoing trade negotiations between David Frost and Michel Barnier

Senior petitioner Bob Downie congratulated those who put their names on the list, saying it was ‘cool’ that thousands of people are supporting the campaign and insisted that ‘the government must respond’

But Brexit supporters were not at all impressed with his petition, with many saying the boat for a second vote had passed a long time ago
