    Kippers dismiss the idea of the EU keeping the peace, but at the first sign of any disagreement you're already talking about using military force.

    Given that fishing is only about 0.5% of GDP, it might be easier and cheaper to simply let the Danes and Belgians have our waters.

    I suppose with military experts like the Italians & the French they much prefer to surrender.

    And I thought the UK was already on the ropes and would beg the EU let us sell the our Jam.

    But our friends are now scrabbling around to find something to win.
