Should we have left the EU? in Non-Fishing Chat Posted 3 hours ago · Edited 3 hours ago by chesters1 They may enjoy a plate of fish and chips and whelks on the side Does anyone care a tiny amount of the total gdp of england now has to sell their catch in england ? They choose to send it abroad its not mandatory when the country has to import the exact same thing?! Cut out the middle man and flog it here.Have you seen the price of a jar of cockles ? They probably are caught here ,exported then re imported at a huge mark up for the middle man . Lets look at logic if fisherman sam flogs it to pierre for say £15 a lump then pierre sells it back to the consumer here for £20 why not the fisherman flog it here for £17.5 and get more and we save money buying it and it will be fresher with less foreign phlegm in it! Sam gains ,we gain ,pierre loses most probably because his mates the EU are deliberately punishing everyone to get a point across ,their boss tough to everyone else Theres a very old saying dont put all your eggs in one basket but no-one takes any notice so its their fault! Dont do it!
