As MP for Plymouth, the city home to the UK’s second largest fresh fish market, Johnny Mercer should be a fisherman’s friend. They’re hurting following cuts to EU fishing quotas of 26% for cod, 14% for haddock, and 12% for whiting – all local catches in South Devon. So it’s no wonder a number of fishermen and women from Plymouth joined Farage’s flotilla down the Thames yesterday. What did their local Remain MP have to say to them?
