  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “‘We just want our waters back’: Fishermen hope for a no-deal Brexit” – below is their description.

    Fishermen in the South of England coastal town of Hastings are hoping for a no-deal as Brexit talks continue in the eleventh hour.

    “I don’t think there’s a fisherman alive who doesn’t want a no deal,” said Terrilea Coglan, a fishmonger living in Hastings.

    It came as Britain prepared to deploy Royal navy ships to patrol UK fishing waters in the event of a no-deal.

    Although Britain technically left the EU on Jan 31, its relationship with the EU remains the same in practice until the end of the transition period, Dec 31, 2020.

    As it stands, the Government does not have a deal and has not requested an extension of the deadline. 

    Mr Johnson’s attempts to negotiate directly with Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron have been rebuffed three times in a week, prompting him to warn a no-deal outcome to Brexit talks is now “very, very likely”.

    Negotiations could go down to the wire as trade talks entered their final day of negotiations today, December 13.

    Despite Boris Johnson setting Dec 13 as a decision deadline, as Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab told BBC News, one of the decisions on the table was extending the talks. 

    On Dec 9, the Prime Minister failed to bridge “very large gaps” during a three-hour meeting with the European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen in Brussels. 

    Mr Johnson said he did not want to “leave any route to a possible deal untested” but was downbeat about the chances of an agreement.
