Civil servants are working round the clock on legislation that can be rushed through Parliament.

But as the deadline looms after months of EU stonewalling we have reached the most dangerous point.

The PM must remember that although fishing may not provide our biggest income it goes right to the heart of why people voted to leave the EU in the referendum.

Reclaiming our borders and our waters is at the core of Brexit.

With Dominic Cummings gone, Boris should not be tempted to compromise on this vital area.

Britain’s fishing industry has been crippled for decades.

It must not be abandoned at the 11th hour.

FRIDAY FEARING

ONLINE shoppers understandably want the cheapest deals in the Black Friday sales.

But please don’t forget our beleaguered high streets.

Black Friday shoppers have been urged to spend their Black Friday digital cash with firms that have high street outlets[/caption]

When you spend your cyber pounds on Friday make sure you do it with a firm that also has real bricks and mortar stores staffed by shopworkers.

Many of Britain’s long-established names have great websites as well as employing tens of thousands of staff and they need every bit of help they can get.

Any cash that goes to them rather than internet giants will at least give our high streets a fighting chance of staying alive.
