Brexit news: Boris Johnson deal described as ‘horrible’ for UK fishing by furious ex-MEP | Politics | New
June Mummery, a former Brexit Party MEP, has unleashed a scathing attack on Boris Johnson’s Brexit negotiating team, describing the fishing conditions described in the deal as the biggest failure of the deal. Ms Mummery highlighted lack of preparation and misinformation as contributing factors to poor conditions for the UK fishing industry.
Ms Mummery said: “They’re never going to go anywhere.
“It’s the biggest failure they’ve ever made.
“Looking back now, they weren’t prepared, I knew that.
“Even the last two weeks before we left, I thought it was going to fall apart because we hadn’t heard anything.

“The [fishing] the industry had not heard of exporting.
“The reason they accepted this horrible deal was because they weren’t prepared and Boris was getting a lot of misinformation.”
Earlier this year, the former MEP said Boris Johnson was “sacrificing” the UK fishing industry and coastal communities to make Brexit a success.
Ms Mummery told Express.co.uk that the post-Brexit free trade agreement signed by Bors Johnson with the European Union “has given it all” on fisheries.
“The government has failed to even secure the six to 12 mile territorial waters.
“They didn’t even negotiate that, so for me, I don’t think the negotiations were good.
“I think David Frost was good overall, but in the end he used us to do Brexit.”
The UK accepted the post-Brexit trade deal with the European Union on Christmas Eve 2020.
