      Fantastic performance by France. Can't see Ireland beating France, Wales or England.

            You are right.
            You have to use the superior Pot Still process to produce good Whiskey. The Scottish use the inferior but more efficient Column Still to produce their Whisky, as do lower quality Irish Whiskey producers. If you are going to drink Whiskey then drink a good quality one.
            My personal favourite is Middleton but at $200 for an entry level bottle it isn't cheap.

              That's because you've yet to try Glen Leavitt Genuine Saskatchewan Scotch whiskey....
              Using glen's unique bathtub still process...

              Glen's best price is for the recycled, four aces or
              Old Niagara, gallon size, LaBRUSCA CANADIAN sherry glass jugs. the green ones....

                I've drunk my fair share of Glen Leavitt but I'm not a fan of the less refined taste of Scotch Whisky.

                Any whisk(e)y that comes in a gallon jug is to be avoided...

                    • Everything happening or not happening in the UK is the doing of the British themselves.

                      That's how it has been, that's how it is, and it's how it eventually will be.

                      And that's regardless of how the UK's negotiations with the EU about what kind of future relationship the UK wants with it end up.

                      But we won't know that until the end of 2020 at the earliest, since for now the UK still operates according to all common agreements within the EU.

                      The UK has left its seat at the table, and from now on has no voice or rights in the internal deliberations of the EU. So far that's the extent of it.

                      The UK can break itself over this, but the EU won't be the one to do it. Unlike the Brexit-victim-fantasies, that was never the situation.

                        Britain is increasing the number of fishery protection vessels in anticipation of hostility from French fishermen..

                          Doubtful it would help any. Most likely is that if anything happens then the French fishermen will simply prevent UK ships from landing their fish to French ports. If it happens on wider scale than that would likely apply to the whole of the EU. To which the UK fishery protection vessels can not do anything anything about. Just like at the Guernsey.

                            They're already talking about it. It's not like all the best fishing are only in UK waters, it will cut off British boats from areas off Normandy and the Bay of Biscay. Of particular concern, as you mention, are the isles of Guernsey and Jersey - they are now effectively trapped by the 1964 fisheries convention, a convention then vehemently opposed by the UK but is now likely to re-implemented with recent demands of French fisheries. This means those islands will now have to ask permission to go beyond those lines. It also cuts them off from French ports to sell their catch. So it hurts both sides.
                            You'll live, only the best get killed.

                              Now that british fishers are used to catching lil fellers like canal bream.:
                              can they be retrained for deep sea work?

                                HMMMM>>>> To the best of my knowledge Glenn Leavitt has never been packaged in anything smaller than the imperial gallon jug...
