(EU) Ireland fishing boats take on the Russians …

01/28/2022

With the Russian navy planning to hold exercises off the Irish coast next month, the Irish fishermen are planning to 'disrupt' (that's the word they used) the Russians as a sign of their distress and concern for the fishing grounds. Despite the fact that the Russian Navy will be exercising in International Waters, the fishermen will be making their point. Perhaps Mr Patrick Murphy, who appears to be heading up the protests, should get himself a Guinness or two, find a gentle rocking chair, sit in it and contemplate his navel for some period of time whilst the rest of the world deals with a Russian threat that is much more real and much more volatile. However, on second thoughts, the Russian Navy, being faced off by a colourful collection of brave Irish fishermen, might be just what we need to bring the Russians to the negotiating table ... waving a white flag no doubt!
