I want to complain about this content:

  • There seems to be some discrepancy between the numbers of under-10 vessels at Lowestoft and Southwold (8 and 4 respectively) as given by Mr. Robinson, and those listed at at 1st February 2013 on the UK Marine Management Organisation (a government body) United Kingdom Fishing Vessel List. This shows 30 registered and licensed Under-10s with a "Home Port" of Lowestoft. Southwold "Home Port" shows 17 such vessels. I know that several are not very active, but they are nonetheless eligible commercial fishing vessels, and all could in theory be hammering away at the fisheries. It doesn't help the British case to be inaccurate with the figures, and the ones I have given are the bona fide official numbers for the two ports. I still think we should get out of the EU and regain our fisheries and control over them; which is why I voted against staying in the Common Market in 1975. It was pretty obvious even in 1973 when Tory Ted Heath conned us into the Common Market, that fisheries and fishermen were just disposable bargaining chips.
