On Gov.UK and @cbeaune:

The UK’s position on fishing licences “remains unchanged”, arguing that it is in line with the terms of the pact.

Frost, the Brexit minister, is now due to conduct talks in Paris with Beaune, on Thursday

#Brexit #Fishing #EU

Mr Beaune stated.

"France would hold off on its threat of retaliatory measures after receiving signals from the “British authorities that will speed up talks”.

@FatsoCatso @timmyvoe @JeanMiSALMON @TimDekker18

No new #fishing licences were granted on the 1st and 2nd November.

No new #fishing licences will be issued before Friday at best.

#EU VESSELS with NO geolocation data over the past 4 years will NOT been issued a new #fishing licence.

Almost 1,700 EU vessels have been licensed to fish in UK waters, equating to 98% of EU applications for fishing licences, the UK government says, but this figure is disputed in Paris.
6/ @cbeaune claims 90% of them were granted. The area of disagreement is over the number of small #EU vessels given access to the immediate coastal waters of the UK and Jersey.

This evening, UK Spx "We will consider any new evidence to support the remaining licence applications"
Some #fishing facts : Number of fishing licences granted by the #UK to #EU fishermen (24/9/2021)

FR: 738
NL : 192
DK: 120
SP: 90
BEL: 65
GER: 50
PORT: 49
SWD: 9

We NEVER granted 1000 licences in 7 days.
8/ Joint Statement from the Minister for Environment and the Minister for External Relations regarding the licensing of French fishing vessels dated 28 October 2021 : 49 licences were granted on the 24/10. London doesn't have a say in #Jersey's licences.

9/ 1/11

Asked about whether France and the UK had come to an agreement, #Truss told Sky: The deal hasn’t been done. The French have made completely unreasonable threats, including to the Channel Islands and to our fishing industry and they need to withdraw those threats
#Macron's hatred of #Brexit is there. Obviously, he doesn't like it, but there is FAR MORE to it.

The hatred is about #AUKUS for 90% in the latest #fishing spat.

Like @CBeaune, he never swallowed #GlobalBritain's pact with the #USA and #Australia.

That's the REAL STORY.

The UK has insisted, however, that it will only grant licences to boats which meet the criteria set out in the #Brexit deal.
12 /

Whitehall officials have drawn up a suite of potential practical measures to retaliate, including forcing French boats to come into port and submit to customs checks before returning to France.

The move would involve relinquishing a waiver currently in place, is seen as one of the tougher potential retaliatory measures but would be more difficult to implement than others.

Second option under consideration is instructing the #MMO to ramp up inspections.

14 /

@emmanuelmacron has backed down for the time being. Leaders agreed to pursue talks.

France says to discuss new proposals with British
Britain welcomes the decision
Macron: We'll take stock at end of Tuesday
#Fishing row could spiral into wider trade dispute


As confirmed by @EmmanuelMacron,
he backed down with his OWN #Brexit THREATS.

With no new #fishing licences given by London over the past 48 hours, both leaders agreed to pursue talks at ministerial levels.

@trussliz helped a lot to be honest.


The relationship between @CBeaune and @DavidGHFrost is very tense.

It really reflects #Frost’s work since 2019 in the #Brexit debate.

Coupled with @trussliz, they are a great duo working together.
18/ REAL story : #TRADE BARRIER INDEX is the remarkable outcome of #Brexit.

The UK wrote its #Global #Tariff schedule that reduced the average MFN, increased the duty-free amount to 60%, & eliminated nuisance.

Unlike #EU, the UK moved from 8th to 4th.

19/ #Brexit #Trade

Unfortunately, the #EU’s restrictive duty-free and Most Favored Nation (MFN) rates force the group’s Tariff score to be much higher than the high-income group average. #BrexitReality for #FBPE & #RejoinEU folks on page 7 to 9. 🤣 tradebarrierindex.org
20/ TBI 2021 : #GlobalTrade is changed for ever with #Brexit & #Covid.

#EU has missed South East Asia w/ #CPTPP and its 570 m. consumers (incl. #UK).

Britain made it clear it would veto any accession from the #EU bloc.

#Brexit is a decisive geopolitical move. #AUKUS was step 1
21 / Like it or not, #Globalisation has changed with #Brexit and #Covid.

The next generation of #GlobalTrade is about countries trading and working together because of common values and principles.

Geography is a thing of the past.

The #EU no longer reflects #Brexit Britain's key business models : #finance, #innovation, new technologies, #manufacturing with real added-value and services at large.

80% of #GlobalBritain are made of services.
23/ The EU is NOT a high-growth zone since 2000. This won't change in the long run.

Blocs like the #Anglosphere, the #USA and South East Asia (#CPTPP) are high-growth and more inline with #UK's economic models.

That's why #GlobalBritain is a world leader in export of services.
24/ Top services #exporters

The #USA exported more services and becomes world's number 1, followed by #BREXIT #GlobalBritain (2), #Germany (3), and #China (4).

That's 35% of global #trade in #services. Source #OECD

#BrexitReality 4 #FBPE and #RejoinEU
25/ Sorry for the mess, but this a live thread. Back to #fishing now.

Remainy @LBC reporting the actual truth about #fishing and #Brexit - unlike inaccurate infos in the @guardian
and @Daily_Express.

26/ France #fishing row: #Paris delays tough new checks at ports after UK legal threat @thetimes 😂

With less than 4 hours before his own sanctions, #Macron announced he was waiting for further talks.

🗣 All mouth and no trousers 👖

#BREXIT #EU apple.news/AmnaHytGBSj2Ta…
27/ From the desk of Monsieur #Brexit | #GlobalBritain | #fishing #EU

France’s @CBeaune has been labelled #Macron’s attack dog, has accused Britain of failing to act like a “friend, ally and responsible partner” @thetimes .

#BrexitReality 4 #FNPE. Real news for real people !
28/ 🚨From the very serious @Reuters

France pushes back deadline for #fishing sanctions 🤣

#fishing #EU #Brexit #BrexitReality
29/ Note to Selft: Live thread

The “proxy wars” that have erupted between the UK and France, on everything from fish and vaccines, to #Aukus and #immigration, are about so much more than any of those individual issues.

FR 2022 Election has nothing to do w/ it. That will come!

Not in the sense that #Remainers like to think.

We have not been witnessing  a clash between the dark nationalist forces of #Brexit Britain and the enlightened European and World order.

#AUKUS was step 1.

The #Anglosohere, #CPTPP, #AUKUS and #CANZUK are next inline for 2022 & 2023.

The #Commonwealth « Common Market » in 10 years max.

They ALL are #GlobalBritain’s future.

The entire Cabinet working on them, along with levelling-up the North.
From the desk of Monsieur #Brexit | #GlobalBritain | #fishing #EU


To be clear - the 49 temporary licences issued by Jersey yesterday weren't new.

They'd already been announced last week... as I said all along !


ON YER PIKE UK hasn’t issued ANY new #fishing licences to French boats this week despite claims PM climbed down to #Macron to avert trade war - source @nickgutteridge.
