At 23:00 on December 31 the UK exited the Brexit transition period and began trading with the EU on new terms negotiated by Boris Johnson. However since this point British fishermen exporting to the continent have complained their shipments have been delayed by extra paperwork causing many to go off before arriving.
Taking to Twitter Ben Habib, a former Brexit Party MEP, blamed the Prime Minister rather than Brexit for the ongoing problems.
He said: “The problems with fishing cannot be blamed on Brexit.
“If Boris Johnson had kept his promise of taking back full control the EU would have no option but to buy our fish.
“His deal allows them to come into our waters and take what they like. The problem: his ‘deal’.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer

“It’s akin to a shop owner inviting customers to take what they like for free and then wondering why they won’t buy the merchandise.
“The govt sold our fishermen down the drain. Not Brexit; their ‘deal’.”
