Brexit LIVE: Boris told he will 'NEVER be forgiven' if he sells out Britain on fishing

4 mins read


Former Brexit Party MEP Martin Daubney took to Twitter to sound his dire warning in the face of widespread reports suggesting British demands for a 60 percent reduction in the catch by value in British waters had been cut to 35 percent – much closer to the 25 percent proposed by Brussels. Mr Daubney posted: “If this is true, it will be a total betrayal of our coastal communities. “The Tories will never be forgiven.”

His comments are indicative of a deep-seated unease among ex-Brexit Party MEPs fearful of Mr Johnson signing up to a deal which compromises UK sovereignty, with the transition period ending on December 31.

Speaking after Mr Johnson’s joint statement with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen earlier this month, David Bull told Express.co.uk: “I’ve never seen a bigger pantomime in my life and it is exactly what we were expecting.

“Look at the language of that statement. The fact that it is a joint statement is really fishy for a start.

“There is also no deadline for the ongoing talks, which is also really suspicious.

“We’ve been fairly quiet and watching and waiting and we believed the Prime Minister when he said he was trying to negotiate the best deal possible.

“Now clearly, from what it says on my Twitter feed and Facebook, people are livid.

“If it is a sell-out, and if it is BRINO, then yes we are ready to come back and take them on.

“Because we did not fight this hard for such a poor outcome, if it is indeed a poor outcome.”
