Something fishy

Brexit enthusiasts claimed during the referendum that the UK can take control of its fisheries if people voted to leave. All those British fish living in UK territorial waters must now be feeling a bit let down by Michael Gove's latest pronouncement. Instead of sacrificing themselves to the nets of fine, British fishermen, as promised, the Environment Secretary has suggested that all those fishy foreigners will be allowed to drop their nets in UK waters. So another Brexit promise is thrown overboard.

Are the Brexiteers backsliding cos they fear losing their plum political jobs and be exiled into the wilderness?. Even Gove's 2040 electric cars scenario is a pinch from the Lib Dem green manifesto of 2914.
