EU should know the rules by now!

Why is Fisheries minister Ben Bradshaw surprised that British and Irish overfishing is penalised whilst penalties are waived for French overfishing!?!

French crews fished almost 40% more tuna than their quota in 2005, and nearly 30% more in 2006. Despite this, the commission not only waived EU penalties, it also negotiated an international amnesty.
