I’m coming back on the Eurostar, and it’s been a satisfying day (Monday 19 March).
Discard disaster has been averted as the French (Spanish, Portuguese and Belgian!) revolution just didn’t happen.
Maria Damanaki led from the front and seems to be building consensus among the ministers.
Everyone agreed that the amazing Twitter and Facebook activity over the weekend made a real difference.
It put ministers on the spot and made them focus on the European citizens they represent – including of course 3/4 million Fish Fighters!
Thank you so much for your support.
It really has hit the spot once again. It wont be the last time we call on you I’m sure, but it’s great to know you’re being heard.
I’m going to have a cold Belgian beer now and toast you all!
