Fishing rights should be redrawn to give a higher quota to smaller vessels after Brexit, the Labour party is to propose in an amendment to the government’s fisheries bill.youtube.com The changes would allow small boats to spend more days at sea and land more catch than they do at present, though catches would still be subject to negotiation with the EU on common fishing grounds. Under current allocations, two-thirds of the UK’s quota of fish under the EU’s common fisheries policy is controlled by three major multinational companies.youtube.com The government has always held the power to reallocate quotas under EU rules, but has declined to do so, in part because of the difficulties of negotiating with companies that have bought rights from others.
After Brexit, the same companies are expected to continue to dominate the UK’s fishing industry, as the environment secretary, Michael Gove, has admitted that there will be few changes to the current allocation system. Fishing, which employs 11,000 people in the UK, became a touchstone issue during the EU referendum, with fishermen’s leaders vociferously backing Brexit as a means of regaining control over UK waters. Crucially, any deal with the EU over shared fishing grounds will have to include the issue of access to markets for the UK’s catch. Fresh fish needs to be transported to market quickly, and with most of the UK’s catch for key species finding its main markets in the EU, any hold-up at customs, or additional tariffs, would spell disaster for fishermen.
That is likely to constrain any future government’s bargaining power when it comes to negotiating the quota with EU member states from shared fishing grounds.youtube.com Luke Pollard, the shadow fisheries minister, said the government was ignoring the needs of smaller fleets. "Michael Gove could take action to redistribute fishing quota now if he wanted to, but he is failing by not delivering quota reallocation in the fisheries bill. The EU’s common fisheries policy came under further fire this week after campaigners slammed a decision reached late on Monday night in Brussels to continue to allow deep sea fishing beyond scientific advice. ] lowers the bar for deep-sea marine life. In practice, these reforms have been hard to implement. After Brexit, the UK is expected to face continuing difficulties, because the UK is likely to be excluded from multi-year plans and ministers will have to fight their case over shared fishing grounds annually.
"If enacted and commenced, the Bill will give the Voisinage arrangements a proper legal footing. The Bill was published in February 2017, commenced debate in the Seanad shortly thereafter and remains before the Oireachtas."Jim Allister, leader of the Traditional Unionist Voice party, said it is time to "stand up for Northern Ireland’s fishermen". He said: "The reciprocal basis of the Voisinage agreement has been breached, so why are we still pretending it exists and operating it to the disadvantage of local fishermen? A Garda spokesman said on Thursday: "An Irish naval vessel the LE Orla detained two UK-registered boats fishing in Dundalk bay. "They were escorted to port in Clogherhead where they were detained by Gardai under the 2006 Fisheries Act on February 27, 2019."An order was issued at Dundalk district court for 48 hours in respect of both vessels.

Britain's parliament has spent more than 500 hours debating how to leave the European Union - without much progress in nearly three years. The British parliament has since debated everything from post-Brexit plant health regulations to fishing and official "flag flying days". And Prime Minister Theresa May has literally lost her voice trying to convince MPs to sign off on her divorce deal with Brussels. Yet the original 29 March departure deadline has come and gone, and now a new one is looming in 10 days' time. Experts who crunch numbers for a living believe that one-sixth of all the hours spent talking in the House of Commons has been devoted to Brexit.
Institute for Government data analyst Gavin Freeguard said civil servants refer to the split as "the greatest challenge of peacetime". Here is a look behind the numbers in Britain's big Brexit battle - a campaign that might yet drag on for many more months. 3 - The number of times the House of Commons has rejected the UK-EU Withdrawal Agreement the two sides reached after 17 months of talks. 12 - The number of "Plan B" alternatives to May's way forward that parliament has voted on in the past two weeks. 0 - The number of "Plan B" alternatives parliament has approved. 2 - The total number of Brexit-related initiatives backed by MPs this year. One called on the government to renegotiate its deal with the EU, which passed on 29 January.
The other was a non-binding motion prohibiting Britain from leaving without an agreement that prevailed on 14 March. 1 - The number of times May's Conservative Party tried to oust her over her handling of Brexit. 1 - The number of times the opposition Labour Party tried to oust May's government over its handling of Brexit. 3 - The number of times various parliamentary parties tried - and failed - to get Brexit put to a new public vote. The bigger numbers were compiled by Institute for Government analysts using parliamentary sessional diaries and other records. 501 - The number of hours the House of Commons spent discussing Brexit from the moment Britain voted to leave the EU in June 2016 to the day it was supposed to have left last week. 33 - The hours May has spent making statements on the EU withdrawal. But she also engages in weekly question time sessions in parliament that often last two or three hours and are consumed by heated Brexit talk.
We hate to toot our own horn, especially when this island nation isn’t in the most secure predicament at the moment, but when it comes to fashion, Britain punches far above its relatively small population. The Harrington Jacket is a tale of two British menswear brands, Baracuta and Grenfell. It’s debated as to which one originally came up with the design, Baracuta having designed its G9 model, the OG Harrington, in 1939, while Grenfell supposedly came up with a rather similar lightweight golfing jacket earlier in the decade. Nobody does it better than James Bond, of course, but somebody did do it before him - the future king of England.
Back in the 1860s, when Edward VII was still the Prince of Wales, he asked his friend and tailor Henry Poole to design him a jacket to wear at dinner without the usual tails. The design went on to become the focal point for the entire black tie dress code (although the original was midnight blue). Known more commonly as a tuxedo in the US, designers are experimenting with the form today, but it barely changed in its first 150 years. Distinguished by satin or grosgrain lapels, worn with a bow tie and side-stripe trousers, it’s is the last word in dressing up. This casual ankle boot actually has its origins overseas, where British Army units were said to wear they style.
Brought back to the UK and popularised by Nathan Clark, the great grandson of James Clark (the founder of the high street shoe company), the style has been a wearable classic for more than half a century. One a crepe sole in a soft caramel-coloured suede, we challenge you to find a boot that is simultaneously more versatile or more comfortable. The polo neck, sometimes called the turtleneck but really they’re the complete same thing, is so called because of the British polo players who started sporting them in the mid 19th century. Which is exactly why it’s remained so popular to this day, an easy to emulate style that works for all rungs of the societal ladder from the Hollywood A-listers to mere mortals. Lousy British weather has a lot to answer for, but not all of it’s bad.
It forced textile designers to come up with ingenious ways to keep people from this country warm and dry and the wax jacket is a good example. Okay, so sailors have been waxing their outerwear since the times of ancient Egypt, but nobody made them look as good as British heritage brands like Barbour and Belstaff. Their signature designs, made for motorcycling and outdoor pursuits have lasted decades and today look just as good in the city as they do in the wilds of Britain. Brogues may be at home on pretty much anyone’s feet these days, but in their formative years on the soles of Scotsmen and Irishmen, they were fence sitting shoes. Being neither smart nor casual they were stuck in footwear limbo and best suited for the great outdoors.
A practical hiking boot of yore, if you will, the telltale perforations as much about getting water out as looking good. Today brogues have come in from the cold and are most often worn in formal settings, though they have that magic ability to dress up more casual leaning outfits without looking completely ridiculous. The magic must be in those perforations which add enough interest to have them welcomed into your off-duty wardrobe, but not enough to scare away your work tailoring. We love a good all-rounder. The first rugby shirt was originally a collared dress shirt worn with a bow tie by its posh schoolboy players. That toned-down poshness meant the jersey perfectly encapsulated smart-casual style off the field of play, with preppy American students in the 1950s hijacking the top and making it a mainstay of the collegiate look, where it has stayed ever since.
More recently, it’s been adopted the streetwear and skatewear camps, too. For today’s comfort over conformity generation, it’s easy to forget that the three-piece suit is one of the most revolutionary and resilient menswear heroes of all time. Before the suit, well-dressed men were all silk stockings, tailcoats and knee breeches, which presumably made getting ready in the morning a bloody hassle. You’ve got Beau Brummell to thank for the easy convenience of the suit as we know it today. Rejecting the fussy styles of the early 1800s, Brummell helped to popularise trousers that reached the ankles and a simple jacket and waistcoat to sit alongside it. Now, the three-piece suit may be only drawn upon for the most formal occasions or for those who are never knowingly underdressed. Either way, without it, you’d probably still be wearing stockings.
The cardigan has gone up and down in the estimations of menswear enthusiasts. To some, it’s best left to your grandad, to others it’s one of the most versatile, smart-casual pieces in menswear, rocked by style icons as diverse as Kurt Cobain and Steve McQueen. The first cardigans were worn as wool waistcoats by British soldiers during the Crimean War, and it was the war’s hero the Earl of Cardigan who popularised the look and gave this menswear hero its name. We still enjoy this way of wearing them, as a less natty alternative to the waistcoat, but it was the way that Cobain and co wore them, chunky and oversized, that really brought the piece out of its mid-century retirement.
While the Chelsea boot is more closely associated with menswear these days, it was our dear Queen Victoria, who popularised the style, her personal cobbler J. Sparkes-Hall having designed the style as a more comfortable alternative to riding boots. The name didn’t come till a century later though when the ‘Chelsea set’ a group of high-falutin’ artists and socialites saw the boots as the perfect complement to their natty, off-kilter tailoring. They’ve since become the most reached-for shoe in the menswear wardrobe, the sleek shape following the silhouette of a contemporary slim pair of trousers or jeans perfectly for a marriage made in menswear heaven.
Not a single menswear tribe is as indelibly linked to a musical subculture as closely as punk. McClaren’s inspiration for the look actually came from the American singer Richard Hell (shhhh), but the impresario had the know-how to run back to Kings Road, London with the style under his arms and claim it for us Brits. The look is less in-your-face then back in the 70s but its counter-culture beginnings have meant its retained its place as a gritty alternative to the more uptight parts of British style. As is the case with much of British sartorial history, the Royals came up with this one first. It was Queen Vic again who, upon the death of her husband Prince Albert, decreed that she would wear black everything, every day for the rest of her life.
In the late ’70s and 80s, British football fans turned to sportswear for fashion at around the same time hip-hop culture was doing the same in the US. The British version was an eclectic mix of heritage brands (Fred Perry) and Italian imports (Sergio Tacchini, Stone Island). Terrace fashion had a lasting impact on menswear, not least in casuals’ devotion to Adidas trainers - sneakerheads 30 years before anyone came up with that term - and the fact that sportswear could be luxury. As well as dirt prevention, a turn-up will also prevent unsightly bunches from collecting around your ankles, will create a much-needed visual break on gangly limbs and will, of course, show off any dandy footwear you’re wearing. And it’s all thanks to King Eddie. Twelve years ago the way men dressed practically changed overnight, when Mad Men aired for the first time.
With it, great swathes of the male population had their eyes opened to tailoring as a style choice, not something imposed by office dress rules. Pocket square sales went through the roof, and slim ties became the new norm for office workers everywhere. Now, Don Draper was American, but the style it inspired was a particularly British take on tailoring, with precise lines and unwavering formality the standout characteristics. Around the same time Instagram came along, prompting wannabe David Gandys to share their buttoned up OOTDs, complete with tie bars and the appropriate hashtags. Since then, tailoring has entered a new, more casual phase - relaxed suits with T-shirts and trainers are here to stay. But it’ll always be rooted in the old school and we wouldn’t be surprised if the tie makes a comeback any day now. On first sight, there’s not much to the Midlands town of Northampton.
There is a lovely church and a good rugby club side, but so far, so non-descript. There’s something in the water, quite literally, with the town’s proximity to 11 rivers encouraging the industry to flock to the town as well as the abundance of oak bark for tanning the shoe leather in the forests of Northamptonshire. Expect three things from a Northampton shoe - high-end luxury, hand made quality and classic silhouettes - three features that have made the town an enduring part of the footwear and fashion industry as a whole. There’s only one road that’s synonymous with tailoring in the world: Savile Row. From Gieves & Hawkes to Huntsman, numerous prestigious houses call this corner of London’s Mayfair home and have done since the 19th century.
The Row even has a style of its own that has become shorthand proper formal suiting: straight lines, stiff canvas, padded shoulders. It’s loosening up these days but whatever your taste, if you’re looking for bespoke tailoring or a made-to-measure suit, there’s nowhere better. Smoked salmon, whisky, five-star hotels - the Scottish really know how to perfect the finer things in life, although we’d give the deep fried Mars bars a miss. Knitwear is intertwined with the culture of the country, and more specifically the finest of all knits, cashmere, the epicentre of the industry being Hawick, 50 miles south of Edinburgh.
Rather it’s the first knitting machines that were brought to Scotland in the mid-18th century and the way the locals perfected the use of them that explains the nations standing as true experts in this king of all clothing materials. Some tailors do make their own shirts, but most rely on dedicated shirtmakers to draw them up. And most of the best in the UK are located on one road - Jermyn Street. Here you’ll find Turnbull & Asser, Emma Willis and Emmett shirts, among others, and T.M. Lewin even started out there. There’s nowhere better for dress shirts or casual linen options especially.
A FISHING boat reportedly featured on TV show Deadliest Catch has capsized killing all three of its crew. The Mary B II, which is said to have been on the programme in 2016, was overturned by 20ft waves in "notoriously violent" waters off the coast of Oregon. It was attempting to cross the dangerous Yaquina Bay bar on Tuesday night when the tragedy unfolded. The boat's skipper Stephen Biernacki, 50, was found dead at the scene having become trapped inside. His two crewmen James Lacey, 48, and Joshua Porter, 50, were unresponsive when they were recovered by rescuers and later died in hospital.
The crew had requested an escort from the US Coast Guard shortly before enormous waves capsized their 42-foot boat. It was later spotted floating upside down at the entrance point of the two jetties. Mr Lacey, of South Toms River, New Jersey, was found in the water and Mr Porter, of Toledo, Oregon was found on a beach north of the north jetty. The Discovery Channel described the fishery as "the deadliest in the world" and claimed thousands have died battling its waters. Here, generations of Dungeness crab fishermen and their families sacrifice everything that they have, including life itself, to carve an existence from the sea. Naval petty officer Levi Reed said the Coast Guard was on the scene quickly but could not save the fishermen. Unfortunately, we were not able to recover them. The Yaquina Bay bar is a dangerous bar, as are all of the river bars in the Pacific Northwest. The USCG Pacific Northwest tweeted as the incident was ongoing, saying responders were "battling 12 to 14-foot seas". There were reports of 16 to 20-foot waves as well, Read said. Fans of the show took to Twitter to pay tribute to the fallen fishermen.
BRITS in the UK's Brexit heartlands are fed up of waiting for the EU exit they voted for almost three years ago. Leavers in the left-behind seaside towns of Skegness, Whitby, Morecambe and Redcar demanded that Britain quit the EU back in 2016, and just can't understand why it's still not happened. She now risks the backlash of millions of her own supporters as they openly slam her for working with the Marxist boss for a watered down exit. Meanwhile, 17.4million people have been waiting patiently for our exit to come, but are growing more frustrated by the day. For the ordinary Brits who led the Brexit revolution across the country, they just can't wait to finally regain our freedom. Evelyn Ovington, from Skegness, defiantly. I think the biggest thing will be that we control more of our own destiny. My biggest beef with the EU is fisheries policy and the farming policies. I think they have done a lot of damage to the environment. And in Whitby, North Yorkshire, fisherman Derek Brown says he hopes our EU exit will finally give him our fishing grounds back. Brexit and whether we should do at all. I don't think you can trust any of the government at the moment.

British and French researchers say the number of dead dolphins washing up on their shores is at its highest level in more than 14 years. In the first six months of this year, more than a thousand dolphin carcasses have been spotted on beaches in southwest England and along France's Atlantic coast.youtube.com While local media have described the deaths as a mystery, many scientists blame large-scale fishing trawlers for the harm to humankind's closest intellectual rivals.youtube.com Over the past 27 years, wildlife advocate Lindy Hingley has recorded hundreds of incidences of deceased dolphins, porpoises and whales for the Devon County in southwest England. Formerly married to a fisherman, she runs Brixham Seawatch, which encourages the public to report the sightings of dead sea mammals on nearby beaches.
More than a decade ago, Hingley and other researchers noticed a sudden increase in the number of dolphins turning up dead on nearby beaches. Read more: Bottlenose dolphins in Baltic waters? The dolphins would feast on the huge shoal of sea bass at the mouth of the trawl - not realizing that they, too, were about to get caught up in a kilometer-long net. The boats would move at high speeds, ensnaring large amounts of marine mammal bycatch in the nets, environmentalists say. The practice was so harmful that British boats were banned from pair trawling in UK territorial waters - although that restriction was never extended to foreign trawlers. In neighboring Cornwall, which lies closest to the Atlantic Ocean, monitors believe 2017 could set a new record for dead dolphins washing up on beaches.
Devon and Cornwall together have reported close to 200 deaths in the first half of the year alone. Ruth Williams, conservation manager at Cornwall Wildlife Trust.youtube.com Williams told DW well over 50 percent of the dolphins examined were too decomposed to accurately determine the cause of death. But the level of decay is consistent with them dying far offshore, while autopsies on healthier dolphins continue to "point the finger to fishing," she added.youtube.com Both Hingley and Williams say most big fisheries are loath to alter their trawling methods amid an aggressive drive for huge profits, despite technology being available to ensure dolphins and other sea mammals don't get caught in the nets.
