The Isle of Man has secured an agreement with the European Union allowing bloc boats to plunder waters around the coast of the British Crown Dependency.

Ha, brilliant!

A lot of the Brexiters are chuntering over the ban on shellfish being exported from the UK to the EU.

The irony is that they don't seem to understand that we are no longer in the Single Market or Customs Union and that rules WE HELPED WRITE back in 2008 prevent the import of untreated shellfish into the EU.

You WON guys! Get over it!
