Journalist Nabila Ramdani called on European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen to take action against France. While speaking on GB News with Michelle Dewberry, she said threats from French fishermen to cause blockades due to the ongoing Brexit fishing row could cause serious disruptions. She added any power cuts to UK islands like Jersey could prove equally disastrous.

“We now face a Government in Paris which seems to have little interest in positive relations with us.

“The great irony is that it was the French in the 1950s and 1960s who fought a long campaign to prevent our entry into the newly formed European institutions.”

French MP Bruno Bonnell, while speaking on GB News, insisted that it was predictable that rows between the UK and France would continue to occur post-Brexit. 

Mr Bonnell said: “A fallout between the UK and France was unfortunately predictable.
