Guernsey making utter idiots of themselves

Guernsey banned French fishing boats in a 12 mile radius.

So French fishing boats blocked Guernsey's fishing boats from landing fish in French ports.

Then Guernsey remembered it was surrounded by French water.

Then Guernsey backed down.

2. Report from the Guernsey side...

Stop gap measures were apparently put in place by the States of Guernsey but apparently neither the French nor those in Guernsey got the message.

No problems for Jersey though, different arrangements in place. Plus Jersey and Guernsey were not part of the EU at all.
