June Mummery, a former Brexit Party MEP, told Express.co.uk that French and Dutch fishermen have admitted that did not expect the UK to give Europe such generous terms on fishing in the post-Brexit trade agreement. She also lambasted Boris Johnson’s “oven-ready” deal, stating that the Prime Minister did not switch the oven on.

Ms Mummery said: “Another 105 vessels have been granted licences to fish inside our 6-12, we did not even secure our 6-12 miles.

“I have had French fishermen and Dutch fishermen speak to me and say we did not even expect to be able to do that.

“They would have been happy with a 5 and a half year transitional period and having the rest.

“Talk about a bad deal and talk about dreadful negotiations.

“I have it all along, it is like baking a cake, they have mixed it all up, put it all in the oven but they have not switched it on.”

She added: “That is what happened, Boris has got to get people around the table who actually know what they are talking about.

“We have got to survive this next 5 and a half years.”

The former Brexit Party MEP also shamed the UK Government for securing “awful” terms for the UK fishing industry.

She outlined a lack of preparation and misinformation as contributing factors to the poor terms for Britain’s fishing industry.

Ms Mummery said: “They are never going to get anywhere.

“This is the biggest failure they have done.

“Looking back now, they were unprepared, I knew it.

“Even the last two weeks before we were leaving I thought this is going to collapse because we had not heard anything.

“The [fishing] industry had not heard about exporting.

“The reason they agreed with this awful deal was because they were unprepared and Boris was being fed lots of misinformation.”
