    One of the many things "they voted for" was not to have to throw their catch overboard because EU 'factory boats' had hoovered up all the allocation for some species.

    Once we are finally out of the CFP, UK fish prices will no longer be artificially inflated, so even with tariffs UK fishermen should be able to sell competitively into the EU.
    (Underlined text is opinion)

    Fifty years of the CFP have destroyed much of the UK fishing industry (much as it was designed to) so is it any wonder coastal communities can't wait to leave it permanently?

    Thumbs up Let them eat Sushi!

    The fishermen are saved. Import duty on soy sauce from Japan to be reduced! I expect said fishermen to be on the phone to Marcus Rashford already.

    (best not to mention the 22% reduction for bluefin tuna).

    The EPA is estimated to raise British exports to Japan by 17.2%, or £2.6 billion (¥355 billion), and Japanese exports to Britain by 79.9%, or £13 billion, in about 15 years compared to the 2019 levels, the report noted.

    Default Trade department's Brexit soy sauce price cut claim prompts backlash

    Trade department's Brexit soy sauce price cut claim prompts backlash

    Department for International Trade (@tradegovuk)
    The bakers used a lot of soya sauce in the first challenge on #GBBO, so it's a good thing it will be made cheaper thanks to our trade deal with Japan 🇯🇵

    A government claim that the new UK-Japan trade agreement will lead to cheaper soy sauce has been shot down as it was pointed out that Britain pays 0% tariffs under an EU deal.
