Conservative MPs now opposing Labour’s jobs in coastal communities amendment - bizarrely Tory MPs backing boats landing huge amounts of fish caught in our waters in foreign ports. The Conservatives are exporting jobs which is a clear betrayal of our coastal towns
Tory MPs now arguing that is OK that foreign ports get the jobs they promised British ports would get with Brexit. Bizarre reversal of their usual Brexit arguments. Labour is arguing to land more fish in British ports creating more jobs in coastal communities
