Your Brexit is a propaganda site with no trace of who's behind it, but I'll answer it anyway.

Much of the UK fishing quotas have been sold to foreign-flagged vessels. But don't worry, Farage rarely bothered to attend the Fisheries meetings in the EU
Partliament committee he was a member of, so no wonder the UK fishing industry has felt marginalised.

Post-Brexit, we can rebuild our fishing fleet and catch as many fish as we want to. Of course, the number of fish around UK waters will deplete more rapidly because the higher numbers of fish caught will be unsustainable. Of course, more fish in the short term = lower prices, but then eventually we'll return to the 'cod wars' of old and there'll be higher prices when fish become scarce (unless our fishing fleets encroach on EU fishing territory).

Don't, be so negative, we Brits don't really like fish so the Foreign owned boats registered in the UK will catch even more of fish in British waters and export it to Spain, France etc.
We will export even more to our European cousins.
More profits for all .
Dick and his fellow thinkers should go to Brixham, Newlyn , the Scottish ports and look at the trucks queuing up to take the catch across the channel.

A xenophobic hate rag? Do you (LouisB) mean the newspaper that has campaigned for justice for Stephen Lawrence?

Name one other newspaper that campaigned so vigorously for Stephen Lawrence? Just one.

Eric, I am not talking about who exposed what or which newspaper has dedicated sections in their newspapers: I am talking about campaigns, for example the Daily Mail 'Bring them to Justice Campaign' aimed at bringing private prosecutions against corrupt politicians in the MPs' expenses scandal.
Starts a pointless argument and cries foul.
You called people out for moaning about the Mail et al, don't be such a baby when people respond.

SoS, I make fun of the Guardian and Independent only out of retaliation. I do not care much for any newspaper. I don’t believe much of anything they say. I agree they are only bloody papers.
Lots of things / organisations / people have done lots of good things. Those very same have also done things that aren't very pleasant.

On that note, you do know the Daily Mail was a famous supporter of British and European fascism don't you? In the 20's and 30's....editorials supporting Mussolini and Hitler....the owner of the paper going to Germany to meet Hitler?

But it's OK. They chased justice once.

Now I hate to have to point out that geographically remaining in Europe (bleedin' obviously) is NOT a compelling argument for why various aspect of UK services, relationships, trade etc may be adversely affected by leaving the EU which mostly all significant countries of Europe are in, including the ones doing the best.

How do they get away with it ? I mean, freedom of the press ... OK ... but consistent lying and bending the truth in a spectacular way, is that legal ? Should they be taken to court over this ?

I guess that as it's campaigning, it can't be classed as lying?
