Policing the British seas post Brexit
« on: 10 August 2019, 13:46:42 »

Nice leak , no doubt by the Remain side.

Apparently we haven't enough vessels to police fishing incursions. Hands up all those that thought we just need to blow one out of the water to deter anyone else...... You naughty people!

A bigger worry , it is suggested, might be the terrorists, smugglers and people traffickers that will also be able to avoid our woefully small fleet of policing vessels. But hang on a minute. Is it a problem now pre Brexit? Are we being helped by EU policing vessels? I am guessing not but might be under estimating the contribution by the French in the Manche.

Perhaps some orders for new cutters could be placed with Clydeside?

For this we'll have to wait until after 31st Oct, otherwise they'll end up being built in Gdansk.  :)

why bother building boats
strategically placed land based missile silos would soon deter anyone smuggling ,fishing,people traffickers once a few boats had been blown up .

That's a good idea Rae, then you could backfill it and then we could all spread out a bit!  :y

It would mean being closer to France though and we might smell the garlic with a southerly wind....  :-\

Nah. Rae would be closer to the land of the Donald, and might even fill in the Bristol Channel.

We could backfill the Irish sea and join it to the mainland, just to piss off Lenny Verouka.  :y

We only completely backfill the Irish Sea between Britain and NI, the rest we only go half way and then we claim the 12 nautical miles from that as our territorial waters.  The same for the English Channel!  :y

Any incursions by French or Irish fishing boats, Dave can deal with!  ;D

Hmmm...I prefer backfilling to NI, then cutting across the border with a ginormous saw and setting the Republic adrift.  :)

I like it.  As long as we push them at least 200 miles into the Atlantic so then we can claim that as our Exclusive Economic Zone.  :)

Actually lets be generous and push them at least 400 miles out into the Atlantic, then they get 200 miles of EEZ to play with as well.  :D ;)

surely it's better to keep "that lot" in one place*  ???

*apart from the ones that have snuck out of the pool , like Uncle Stemo, which we just RFID tag  ;D

Címon Dai, letís me and you build a wall around our waters :y
I live in the center of the Known world,That would put far too many miles on my Omega , I'm up to 81k already  :P

We already have a moat built ,full of cold salty water, we just need to make it a bit less hospitable , to deter Johnny Foreigner from stealing OUR fish or visiting without permission etc
Blowing people up is proven technology and TB can remote access/administer  the missile silos using windows xp home network set-up wizard   :D ;D

Not too far away. Apparently, we need their cows for our MacDonalds.
