This afternoon.

Further to the Russian military drill planned for 240km off Ireland’s southwest coast.

Via Irish Times:

Irish fishing boats are planning to peacefully disrupt plans by the Russian navy to conduct military exercises off the coast of Cork next month.

Patrick Murphy, chief executive of the Irish South and West Fish Producers Organisation said that the area was very important for fishing and that they wanted to protect biodiversity and marine life.

Hmm.

Mr Murphy said:

“We’re entitled to go fishing here. It’s our waters. Can you imagine if the Russians were applying to go onto the mainland of Ireland to go launching rockets, how far would they get with that? It’s no different to fishermen, this is our ground, this is our farm, this is where we earn our living.

“Why should somebody be able to come in and do that in our waters? This is going to affect our livelihoods and the marine life. There’s seismic activity out there for years and it actually changed the migratory pattern of tuna at one stage.”

    Hmm, we don’t have NATO to protect us, the EU would procrastinate until the hammer and sickle are raised in O’Connell Street, and out Military are underfunded, under resourced and under skilled.

    What will happen if the Soviet Navy (They haven’t gone away you know) sinks a trawler? Absolutely nothing.
