The old mackerel

I've just picked up on what Iceland and the Faroes are doing about the amount of mackerel that they can catch, as deemed by the European Union. They are going to go ahead and ignore it, as they did last year. They will take all the benefits that they can from the EU, plus the fish that they ain't supposed to.

Now, to me that just ain't right. If a country is going to take the benefits then it has to play the game too, it has to follow the rules. If they are going to take with one hand then they give with the other.

But will they - I doubt it!!!
