Losing 60% of UK fish to EU + cost to buy/rentquota frm shore based Slipper Skippers is strangling industry & stifling next generation
Brexit can create a £6-8bn sustainable industry
But govt must #ChuckChequers; repatriate all resources; allocate fairly & ban slipper skipperspic.twitter.com/yqgBiwHa1I
A look back at my visit to North Shields fishing port. From 'slipper skippers' to the need to rentquota, the situation for British fishermen is disgraceful. In fact, the whole system needs a total overhaul. May's deal will sell out our Fishermen further! pic.twitter.com/IzN2oXGHAF
Say your rent is £475 two month rent break that’s £950 outstanding £135 pound extra on rent for the remaining 7 month quota ramping rent up to £610 what if the family lives month to month you will have a nation of rent arrears crazy recession,debt,death looming.
I worked in the tomato farms on the Isle of Wight. I hope as rubbish. Never once met the minimum quota of quantity picked per hour. Many of the guys from Eastern Europe picked nearly twice as much as me and one had bought a beautiful house back home. I could hardly afford my rent
I'm selling a character over on FA and I am doing emergency commissions as well. A wee bit behind on my personal quota for rent. The stress is real. If you are interested but do not have an FA, PM me. ^^
Are you going to detail to him the huge problem in the demersal sector of high costs of quotarent from slipper skippers making off with a large proportion of the gross and the cost of buying quota near prohibitive to making a return on the investment..?
