    Mike. See website for Fishing for Leave. ( who organised the Thames flotilla with much successful publicity last year).
    They are still campaigning vigorously.
    IMO there is simply no need for the disastrous CFP to be transferred into British law via the Repeal Bill.
    I have written to DD asking for an explanation as to why this transfer is taking place – ostensibly for the sake of “continuity”

    I think they’re going to betray our fishermen once again. I signed the petition several days ago and hope there’s sufficient support for it to be at least debated on the HoC. But I think there will have to be more than that if the betrayal is to be thwarted and that will need widespread and persistent publicity; something I doubt the far-left, EU loving bbc will countenance.

    Julia and Mike,

    Approve Mr Higham’s request please.


    PS: Ask Spiked, Spectator, Bishop-Hill, Worstall, ASI, Fox News (& RT?) guest contributor Farage to get it discussed on air.

    I’m going to repeat Edward Spalton’s comment at my place:

    “Fishing for Leave ( FfL) is one of the most active groups, lobbying ministers and officials tirelessly. They want to make sure that the Common Fisheries policy is NOT transposed into British Law. This would merely confirm that our EU plunderers must have ” grandfathers’ rights” to fish in our exclusive 200 mile Exclusive Economic Zone and the odious quota system ( with built in incentive to cheat) would continue. From their own world-wide fishery experience, FfL have developed a system of control based on permitted days at sea, improved from the one already used in the Faeroe Islands.

    I would say we need to keep posting at FB and Twitter, which is why there needs to be a badge to get attention.
