Just seems so wrong to dump good food over the side, with so many hungry worldwide. Hope this measure helps.

  1. Yes, a little bit of common sense at last. But only a little. While ever we are subject to the whims of the unelected bureaucrats in Brussels, many of whom brought up miles from any sea, there will be idiotic ‘laws’ like these.

    Heaven help us if we become ‘independent’ of the UK, only to fall into the clutches of Brussels. I can predict we will have far less ‘self determination’ than we ever have at the moment, for the stupidity of the fishing quotas runs through all the legislation of the EC, and their bureaucratic power is far greater than any at Westminster.

    • Tony, Scotland’s fishing indutry is far greater than England’s but our “say” in Brussels is a wee man from Westminster. Once you have read the history of the whole sorry affair you may want to withdraw the last paragraph.
      We need an independent “say” in our fish and loads of other things, BRING IT ON.

      • I tend to agree that the ‘wee man from Westminster’ probably didn’t listen hard enough to our man and didn’t shout loud enough in Brussels. And yes, we should have more ‘say’ in many things.

        I’m just concerned that we may swap from one ‘master’ that we know well and to a certain extent is accountable, to one much larger, more powerful, with less accountability, where our ‘say’, if it is heard at all, will be completely ignored.

        On the other hand, maybe I’m just getting too old for change. :-)
