Armistice Declared


France has temporarily backed down from implementing its various threats over fishing rights around Jersey, allowing time for the UK and France to continue talking for the next day or so.

Depending on which side of Brexit they stand, the Twitterati are claiming it's either because Jersey granted 49 temporary licences yesterday, or because Macron backed down in the face of the UK's threat to retaliate.

In reality Macron was told to wind his neck in the by the EU, who have been less than forthcoming with any display of public support for him.
