Index – Abroad – The Jersey crisis over Brexit is over

The protest by French fishermen off the coast of Jersey ended without incident on Thursday afternoon. The UK and France sent two naval patrol boats to the scene to monitor the situation, but warships did not intervene and dozens of French fishing boats marched into the island’s port in the morning, the MDI said.

Located 22 kilometers off the coast of Normandy, Jersey, with its vast Sovereign Powers and population of 108,000, it is not part of the United Kingdom, but part of the British Crown.

Since the end of Brexit, a member of the British EU last January, it has been the first legal provision between the EU member states to include the armed forces of the United Kingdom and the countries concerned, although both London and Paris have had warships for patrol and surveillance purposes only.

According to the French authority, if no solution is found, counter-measures are expected on the part of France. Downing Street was informed that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson had telephoned Senator John Le Fondrey, a senior minister in Jersey’s local government, on Thursday, assuring him that Jersey could count on London’s full support. Johnson said the British Royal Navy has two Patrol boat[1] As a precaution, it will be on site with a tracking task. London commanded the patrol boats Severn and Lotus from the port of Portsmouth in the south of England to Jersey Beach.

The members of this patrol class are 90.5 meters long, with artillery and short-range air defense equipment in their internal arsenal. One of the most heated discussions between London and the EU last year was precisely the issue of fisheries regulation in a series of talks on the terms of the future relationship between the UK and the EU, with only a handful of fisheries sector accounts.

Paper Preview: Andover Advertiser, May 14, 2021

ANDOVER’S Conservatives are celebrating after winning four seats at the borough council elections.

The result of last Thursday’s ballot has reversed the 2019 swing which saw the Andover Alliance make large gains.

This puts the party firmly back in the driving seat at Test Valley Borough Council, strengthening its overall majority with four new representatives.

Jan Budzynski (Conservative, St Mary’s) and Jim Neal (Conservative, Millway) have been re-elected as borough councillors after losing their seats during the Alliance’s surge two years ago.

The scandal-hit party, headed up by outgoing Andover mayor, Richard Rowles, split after it was hit by a number of resignations in its first year and incidents of political infighting.

It chose not to contest these elections, with Richard Rowles telling the Advertiser earlier this year that it was “irresponsible” to hold a poll in a pandemic.

Their absence meant that the Andover Conservatives’ main rivals in the four borough council by-elections were the Lib Dems, who they comfortably beat for all positions.

The Andover Independents, who spun out of the Andover Alliance, also stood in a number of seats but did not win any.

Also newly elected are Mike Maltby and Terese Swain, who will represent Chilworth, Nursling & Rownhams in the south of the borough. They are filling the shoes of late Councillors Nigel Anderdon and Alison Finlay who sadly passed away.

Leader of Test Valley Borough Council, Cllr Phil North, said he was “delighted” at the results, writing: “While the national picture looks extremely positive for my party, this is also an endorsement of the work we’ve been doing locally.”

And Cllr North had an additional reason to be cheerful, after winning the election to represent Andover South at Hampshire County Council.

This means the leader will now hold three positions in public office, with allowances for his job as a borough councillor (£7,036 a year), borough council leader (£13,339) and now a county councillor (£12,833). From September, his borough council allowances will rise to £7,390 and £16,258 respectively.

He joins his wife, Cllr Kirsty North, who was re-elected as a county councillor and remains as a borough councillor too.

There were no major changes in this year’s county council elections with the Conservatives holding 56 seats out of a possible 78. The Liberal Democrats remain the largest opposition party with 17 seats.

Meanwhile, Conservative Donna Jones won the Police and Crime Commissioner ballot.

COVID rebels vandalise Cleethorpes school signs

Several signs at a school in Cleethorpes have been defaced with stickers encouraging lockdown breaches by an anonymous movement called The White Rose.

The anti-lockdown messages on the signage at Thrunscoe Primary and Nursery Academy included “Staying human is more important than living in fear. Hands, Face, Embrace. Stay free, ditch the muzzle, the media is the virus”.

Another said “if you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it”.

Several signs at the school were defaced with anti-covid messages.

Some of the stickers included the message “Brought to you by: The White Rose” and included a link to a Telegram page.

One sticker showed a QR code with the message “Informed Consent [Scan Me]” and others ended with ‘Brought to you by: The White Rose” and a link to a Telegram page[1].

The QR code takes you to a website called BitChute, known as a video hosting platform which accommodates far-right individuals, conspiracy theories and some hate speech.

The page users are directed to is headed by a video from ex-Pfizer scientist Michael Yeadon[2], who has become an anti-vax figure over the pandemic. In the video, he describes fears and skepticism about COVID vaccines and lockdown.

He is known as the co-author of a petition against vaccine trials which quickly spread on social media claiming, without evidence, the vaccine caused female infertility. This was later debunked.

“These claims are false, dangerous and deeply irresponsible,” a spokesman for Britain’s Department of Health & Social Care said.

The school posted a series of photos of the vandalism saying: “A couple of our eagle-eyed parents have brought to our attention the following vandalism of our Academy signs. If you have any information please contact us at the Academy.

“We are currently looking through our CCTV footage which has clear sight to the front of the Academy where the signs have been defaced. Your support is sought.”

The school said it was looking through its CCTV footage.

The Lincolnite contacted the school and Humberside Police for further information.
