What is it with islands and tories. Firstly Thatcher declares war on Argentina, and now Johnson is trying look hard by sending 2 gunboats to face off a few French fishing boats.
having failed to negotiate with Norway’s fishermen it is the turn of Jersey and the French. My right wing friend tells me that the Jersey Government is just enforcing a treaty that already exists. Everything I have read disagrees with this. They are talking about the 13 miles of water between Jersey and France, common sense would imply that negotiation was necessary. The French were also wrong to threaten the islands elecvtricity supply (95% from France).
