Guardian: France threatens to cut UK and Jersey energy supply in fishing row

The EU could hit Britain and Jersey's energy supply over the UK's failure to provide sufficient fishing licences to French fishers, France's EU affairs minister has said.

Clément Beaune, who is a close ally of the French president, Emmanuel Macron, said action would be decided on within days and discussions were already in motion.

France's prime minister, Jean Castex, echoed the sentiment, telling the national assembly that the EU had to be firmer with the UK. "The [European] Commission is moving, it must do more", he said.

Sounds like European patience is running out.
