I see the Danish banks are offering interest free mortgages to their citizens. Bloody Europeans and their crazy ways. Who'd want to be part of that?

Johnson has backed his fisheries minister Victoria Prentis, after she admitted she did not read the Brexit deal when it was published on Christmas Eve because she was busy with a Nativity trail. She is facing calls to quit – but No 10 said the PM still had confidence in her.

This from the Independent today sums how important the fishing deal was to the fisheries minister, those pretending the fishing deal was anything but a capitulation are fooling themselves, Scottish fisher are now landing their catches in Denmark, fishing is only a tiny part of the economy and as many predicted it has been sold down the river

From the Guardian......

Nathalie Loiseau, France’s former Europe minister, tweeted on Thursday afternoon: “An MP who says the fish are happier because they are now British, a fisheries minister who admits she hasn’t read the agreement with the EU in her field: happily in Europe, we at least took fishermen seriously.”

As someone voted Brexit we have been sold a dud.  I thought we would have a deal like Norway instead it's much worse,

It's usual for several of the larger Scottish vessels to land into Denmark in the first few weeks of the year, market prices there are usually high in January especially for whitefish species that aren't in such big demand in the UK like coley, whiting, hake etc. This doesn't tend to last into February though. I would guess Scottish landings will likely continue into Danish ports (which are as close as you can get to the Northern North Sea grounds and be within the EU) if the UK export disruption continues.

Good point about how fishing is a tiny part of the economy. I think Don Lister said the same about the fate of our distant water fleet in the 70s - it was too small for government to fight for. The industry has shrunk much further since those days.

That was inevitable from the start. Surprised it wasn't the first order of business.

Still can't send packages to Europe via DPD. It appears that there are problems with the alignment of the new UK customs system and the long-existing EU one. It's now 8 days without being able to despatch large parcels to the EU for us. Good job we've only had to send small packages under 5 kilos.

As for the fish, well, it's what everyone thought would happen. The funders of the Brexiteers used fishing rights as a prop to get what they wanted. Not enough money in fish for them to care one jot any longer.

Workers rights to be reduced as well? Wow, who'd have thought it with these wealthy, swivel-eyed right-wing loons running the show? I remember being amazed when Gove became a seriously influential Conservative politician after reading his drivel in The Times for years. I've yet to be convinced that Rees-Mogg is anything more than an elaborate performance artist pretending to be the worst Tory he can imagine.

They'll be an independent nation and back in the EU within 10 years.

Latest opinion poll for this May's Scottish Parliamentary elections forecasts...

SNP 72 seats
CON 24
LAB 19
GRN 9
LDEM 5
Projected SNP majority of 15

Factor in that the Green party are pro-independence and you have a potential 81-48 split for pro-independence MSPs,

I can't wait to see Boris Johnson say there's no legitimate reason to hold another Scottish Independence Referendum if/when the SNP win a landslide.
