What I don't understand is why we have to have some weird hybrid system of imperial and metric. Choose one and be done with it. I just want us to do something normal for once.

The second link states "Brixham’s fish market is currently enjoying a boom in business, with fish landed in ports hundreds of miles away being brought by road to be sold at the online auctions on the quayside.

But, said Mr Spreckley: “Environmentally the fish quay proposal is ridiculous. This will just lead to more fish being trucked in from all over the country to be sold on the market at Brixham, because Brixham fish has a premium value"

I think it just means people are bringing fish from the EU into Britain to sell more expensively.
Brexit was supposed to lay waste to the U.K. fishing industry AU.
Yet within months of us leaving Brixham is experiencing a boom and planning an expansion which could involve 150 more jobs. 🤷‍♂️

I thought Brexit was supposed to do the opposite and the problem was french, spanish, and the rest trawlers on 'our' fishing grounds? Or is it because they can now forget sensible quotas and scrape the lot out. Dunno, takes me all day to get a few bream!!!

Please don't tell today's Daily Express but it looks like this great UK-US trade deal won't be happening anytime soon or ever.
BJ deserves to be confronted with the lack of a FTA with the US, but let’s not overstate it’s importance. Trade between the two is still massive. 🤷‍♂️
