EXPRESS /// “Sources close to the EU-UK talks confirmed the major dispute about fishing rights in Britain’s coastal waters remains unsolved.
The totemic issue threatens to derail the wrangling over the future relationship pact, with Downing Street and France both holding out against concessions. But Michel Barnier, the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator, was said to be working on a potential compromise in the hope of ending the impasse in the coming days. If not, a no deal exit seems all but inevitable.”
#NewsLink: This is unbelievable, France expects Britain to give away its sovereign waters even though Britain is to become an independent sovereign Coastal nation post-transition period.
France seriously doesn’t have a leg to stand on with these demands, its unheard of for a foreign country to demand another country to give away it’s control of access to their territory. The EU, including France, need to give their heads a wobble and smell the coffee, it’s not going to happen. If you want to fish in Britain’s waters, you adhere to British rules.
