If you ever have any doubts about the benefits of leaving the EU, France are always happy to provide a reminder of what life under the superstate would be like, whenever they disagree with UK policy and then follow up with a violent tantrum. A French minister has threatened to cut off electricity supplied to the island of Jersey via one of the huge sub channel cables stretching from the UK to France if they don't get their way on rights to fish in British waters. Apparently Jersey get 95% of their electricity from this source. I really hope that the UK do not cave in to these thuggish tactics, which are reminiscent of threats made by Russia to Ukraine. In fact I am hoping that gov.UK will double down and tell the French to take a long walk off a short pier. Come on LA France, you're better than this ! Don't follow the appalling example set by the gangster state which is Putin LLP... I'm also disgusted with the lack of planning and foresight which has left Jersey vulnerable to this kind of threat. We need to get some power plants and generators set up on the island pronto, and never mind if it "spoils the beautiful coastline", just bite the bullet and get it done. Whatever happened to self sufficiency in this country ?
