Brexit news: Beaune throws down glove as he speaks out after Brexit showdown crunch | Politics | News

Speaking on Sunday, Mr Beaune claimed France will “obtain licences” from the UK, citing the row over Jersey. Ahead of his meeting with Lord Frost on Monday, Mr Beaune claimed France’s resolve will persist despite the lingering difficulties between the two governments. In a statement on social media, the French EU minister said: “I will be in Brussels tomorrow to continue these vital negotiations for France and the EU.

“Our goal has not changed: enforce the agreement, get our licenses, defend the interests of our fishermen.”

France has claimed that the UK has not granted sufficient permits to French fishermen after Brexit.

Earlier in the year, this led to a blockade of the port of St Helier in Jersey by French ships.

If no further permits are granted, France has threatened to cut energy supplies and increase customs controls on British goods entering the continent.

Earlier this month, the Jersey government issued a further 49 temporary fishing permits.

These licenses will run until the end of January to allow for further negotiations.

The Jersey government has claimed that 162 licenses have now been issued to French ships, both temporary and permanent.

The government also confirmed that it is open to further data from French ships in the coming months.

“The Commission has to protect us. It has to get through this, but it’s going too slowly, too weakly.”

“If the Commission doesn’t play its part, France will.”

Ahead of the crunch meeting, Jersey’s assistant environment minister, Deputy Gregory Guida, warned that French retaliation could be stronger than before.

He warned: The French are not done yet – it is not over yet.

“It looks like they’re coming back to the fight in an even more devious way than before.
