Brussels forced to admit EU fishermen will be locked out of British waters under No Deal Brexit

Brussels forced to admit EU fishermen will be locked out of British waters under No Deal Brexit

BRUSSELS bosses admit their own fishermen face being shut out of British waters if we leave without a Brexit deal.

EU officials said continental trawlermen must “prepare for the possibility” they will no longer be able to land catches in UK seas after October 31.

In a new paper they said they will try to get an agreement on fishing with the next British PM but are mobilising funds to prevent mass job losses if that fails.

And the paper warned of the possibility No Deal could spark a free-for-all between coastal nations vying for the remaining fish stocks in EU waters.

The warning will raise hopes for Tory leadership candidates that they may be able to squeak a deal through – as the EU will lose out without one.

And it added the EU will seek “a specific arrangement with the UK in accordance with international law obligations and based on scientific advice” for 2020.

EU officials also berated businesses on the continent for failing to prepare properly for a crash out, ordering them to up their game.

They also claimed that Britain’s economy would take a nose-drive if there’s a No Deal – just as Boris launched his campaign to be leader.

Eurocrats predicted the UK will face “significant disruption” and a “serious negative economic impact” if we leave without an agreement in October.

The Commission said No Deal “very much remains a possible, although undesirable, outcome” given the “political situation” in the UK.

And it stressed: “In a No Deal scenario, the UK will become a third country without any transitional arrangements.

“This will obviously cause significant disruption for citizens and businesses and would have a serious negative economic impact, which would be proportionally much greater in the UK than in the EU.”

Eurocrats said visits to all 27 capitals over the last year had shown “a high degree of preparation by Member States for all scenarios”.
