UK shellfish farmers threaten legal action over ban on exports to EU
Industry claims it was misled by Defra over post-Brexit position and will sue unless trade with union restarts soon

The environment secretary, George Eustice, is facing a threat of legal action from shellfish farmers over claims that the government has misled the industry over its post-Brexit arrangements with the EU.

A solicitor representing 20 shellfish firms told the Guardian the government had shown “negligence and maladministration” and that a group action was being considered for compensation.

Separately, an exporter of mussels sent a legal letter to the secretary of state saying the firm would sue for damages if the shellfish market with the EU were not opened up by September.

The move comes as the UK finally hands a roadmap to Brussels on Northern Ireland following the launch of legal action by the EU over an alleged breach of the withdrawal treaty.

That's not going to work. The Tories will just make a new law and then say, "Look. It's totally legal to mislead people if it's for the right reasons."

Scot, Australian wine varies considerably, as does our beer. In both, you have fairly crappy, cheap, mass market products, such as Fosters, and most of the large volume of cask wines. These were what you were thinking of, I suspect.

Both, however, have smaller volumes of very high end products. There is a plethora of small craft breweries around that produce a wide variety of excellent beers. We also have literally hundreds of small, family-run wineries all around Australia, many with vines that have been planted for over 100 years. They produce low volumes of excellent wine from many different varietals. The Pyrenees wine region in Victoria (which we are visiting next week) is one such example:

Our Victorian Pyrenees range is a lot smaller than the European one, of course... ;)

I think the Tories are taking their lessons from the Republicans, not the other way round.

I think it a two way flow. Johnson has already achieved more than Trump. There is no opposition in the UK and Chumocracy rules.

In the tradition of the Downfall memes...

So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton
