From The Institute of International and European Affairs Youtube Channel – an Irish Think Tank.

Note they say that the vast majority of MEP’s voted for a total ban on discards – but that isn’t enough! So much for EU democracy eh? This reinforces that the EU government is the 27 unelected EU commissioners, the parliament is just a bauble to give a veneer of apparent democracy.

The ban on discards may just dump responsibility on the fishermen, making them criminal if they catch them, rather than actually addressing the issue!
