The UK is an island nation that loves to eat fish, makes sense. The UK is an Island nation that loves to eat fish and has millions of fisherman, makes sense. The UK is an Island nation that loves to eat fish and has millions of fisherman, yet has become a net importer of fish from the EU….What?
Since the UK has entered the EU, their traditional fishing waters have to be shared by other members of the EU. All fishermen have quotas, so the UK fishermen are unable to catch the quantity of fish required to satisfy the UK populace. As such millions of mostly Spanish and Italian fishermen have taken up fishing the UK waters, catching fish the UK fishermen used to catch and selling them back to the UK.
This is an example of one of the many ways the EU has tied the hands of the UK. This union ultimately cannot exist as nations will rip themselves apart eventually as economies continue to worsen. The best thing is for an orderly exit of nations and quiet, peaceful conclusion of the EU experiment.
