    200 Galician vessels seized and and sent to the breakers yard
    - now that would go some way to saving fish stocks!

    Having visited the Vigo and A Coruna fish markets, it's obvious to me that much of the catch comes from 'UK' waters of the EU.
    And, having observed Spanish fishing vessels quietly trawling the British beaches at night - no more than a long cast out, I would seriously like to see extremely punitive punishments handed out.

    As I have said already, the Spanish take more fish from Scottish waters than our fishermen do.
    With modern technology, the fish are sold on the high seas and there is no need to land anything in the U.K. for transhipment to Spain.

    I have advocated the closure of ALL UK waters to ALL Spanish vessels for some time now...Trust me,such action will get the attention of the Spanish government..“pronto”...No this or that...just do it..!!

    But come on guys, is anyone even remotely surprised at these “revelations”?

    If anybody thinks Camoron is going to DO anything, then I really can’t see that happening.

    We all have to be good EUropeans, don’t we? Don’t we?
