... generally found out of its depth ...

Btw, what happened to 'Morgan's Treasure'? any ideas?

#4 Didn't the Palmerston of our era, Gavin Williamson, promise that the first one would go and show the Chinese a jolly old what- for?

#8 Aliens took it, according to orbiting US astronaut Gordon Cooper.

Ah! so he knows where it is! get him!!

He's dead - but passed a treasure map on to some dude on the Discovery Channel.

Who knows? It’s in storage somewhere.

Alright, Mr Pedant: Is Drakes Drum a-muffled thumping?

Snarlygog - 11 Jan 2021 10:31:52 (#15 of 114)

Drake's Drum is now in the Box - Plymouth's extension to the museum.

I've seen it.

Buccaneering takes off:

„Scottish fishing vessels will begin heading in larger numbers to Denmark to land their catches from this week“

Flying the scull and crossbones...

FleurDuMal - 17 Jan 2021 10:47:30 (#18 of 114)

I’m sure there will be opportunities to resurrect the smuggling trade.

TauCeti - 17 Jan 2021 10:47:30 (#19 of 114)

Will they be able to sell their fish to a fishing country? will they want it? doesn't brexit count for that?

Surely it's already in place and expanding?

phantlers - 17 Jan 2021 11:34:05 (#21 of 114)

There's some schadenfreude in the word 'shock' in that guardian leader but it's not really very funny. Export sales at my workplace have plummeted, vanishingly so.

Jacob_Richter - 17 Jan 2021 12:55:41 (#22 of 114)

Presumably, the Scottish fishing vessels still have all the export red tape when they land their catch in Denmark rather than their home ports, just that the timescale is reduced for a perishable product. And, I imagine, the market, processing and warehousing now passes to Danish firms.

Brexit - good for the Danish fish processing and wholesale industry.

HorstVogel - 17 Jan 2021 12:58:17 (#23 of 114)

just what I thought, Grimsby 0 : 1 Esberg, and it's early in the first half.

I‘m not quite sure about that.

quattrobhoy - 17 Jan 2021 14:30:32 (#25 of 114)

I suspect that Jacob Really Smug will find that the catch will be accepted as DANISH fish!
