"Jersey incident" could lead to the collapse of Britain and the war in the Old World


On the eve of the small island of Jersey, which is located in the English Channel separating Great Britain and France, heightened attention of the entire international community was attracted, since both London and Paris simultaneously sent two warships to its shores as an argument in resolving an economic dispute. Europe ... Will this story have some kind of continuation, and then how can it be?


Jersey is not formally part of the United Kingdom, being only the so-called Crown Possession associated with a personal union with the British monarchy. This name says little to Russians, except that it is a large offshore company, where for a long time the business of our famous oligarch Oleg Deripaska “optimized” the payment of taxes. By the way, in 2019, the billionaire re-registered his assets in the domestic "tax haven" on Oktyabrsky Island in the Kaliningrad region. However, this is not about him, so let's return to Jersey. The area has its own self-governing bodies, and London is responsible for its military protection, as demonstrated by the dispatch of the patrol ships HMS Severn and HMS Tamar to meet the two French patrol boats.

The most interesting thing is what was the reason for the use of such "civilized" methods. All this is a direct consequence of the painful divorce process between the UK and the European Union. One of the most difficult issues was the right of access for fishermen from the EU to British waters, which suddenly ceased to be allied. As a result of the "divorce agreement", the island of Jersey allowed Europeans to fish in their territorial waters, but only on the basis of a license and only to those who can prove that they had fished there before. The nuance lies in the fact that only the owners of trawlers, on which there is a special beacon, can confirm this. And it is available only on large vessels, because about 80% of small fishing vessels suddenly found themselves overboard.

It is clear that this caused outrage among the French fishermen, who staged a protest. The EU leadership was unpleasantly surprised, since there were no agreements on such "quirks" on the part of London. And Paris even threatened to cut off the supply of electricity to the island from its territory, where it comes from about 95%:

Electricity goes to Jersey by cable. I will be sorry if it comes to this, but we will go for it [the blockade] if we have to.

In response, the British sent two warships to the shores of Jersey, and the French - two more of their own. This is the European way! Where are the "civilized white people" to us, "Russian bastards" who only tolerate the antics of Ukraine, which cut off the supply of water and electricity to the Crimea. It turns out that it is enough to send a navy and block something for a strategically important partner in the negotiation process. This is who our homegrown geopolitical strategists should learn from!

But seriously, this incident, in which both sides demonstrated military strength and determination to toughly defend their national interests, could have dire long-term consequences for Britain, France, and the entire Old World as a whole. After a painful divorce, London has clearly demonstrated to yesterday's allies that now the tobacco will be apart. The British have a queen (for now), Europe has Angela Merkel (for now). The United Kingdom has chosen an independent development path through a consistent economic integration on the rubble of the former British Empire. Such ambitions need to be able to be backed up by military force, and the British are already doing this. Otherwise, why are they building aircraft carriers and collecting ships from the pine forest for them for the AUG? To fight with Russia? No, this is primarily necessary for the projection of British military power abroad in the next upcoming redistribution of "colonies": sales markets and natural resources. Thus, the United Kingdom objectively opposes itself to the entire European Union.

The Jersey incident is simply a symptom of a general illness. Much more serious clashes between yesterday's allies are possible in the future. Thus, European countries, primarily Germany and France, can respond to Britain's neo-imperial ambitions by supporting separatist movements in Scotland and Northern Ireland. The latter generally has a chance to lead to a renewal of the terrorist war, so that the British have something to do instead of trying to expand their zones of influence at the expense of the Old World.

    Well, Britain does not shine here, the French fleet and air force are stronger than the British, and if we take into account the conflict between Britain and Spain over Gibraltar, then London can get a war on two fronts, in which Britain has zero chances of winning

      When and whom did the French "warriors" defeat for the last time ?!
      Keitel's phrase about the French:

      How?! And these, too, defeated us, or what?

    Yes, The neo-imperial ambitions of the WB are also noticeable in the joint, American-British, neo-colonialist "inclinations" in Eastern Europe, in the post-Maidan "w / Bandera" amerocolony "Ukraine"!
    Namely, in a very active desire to "stake out" a large part of the American naval base in the Black Sea port of Ochakov, at the mouth of the Dnieper-Bug estuary (100 km from the Crimean peninsula).
    Due to the fact that these Naglo-Saxon occupiers
    speak the same language and, even over short distances, move mainly on Mi-8 (Mi-17), it is not entirely clear which of them there are more Americans or British ...
    I think that as a result of the "inter-party distribution of zones of influence" it is the WB that will oversee this "naval base of the Naval Forces of Ukraine" and restored (after the period of "independent" disbandment and deriban at the beginning of the , with all its infrastructure, according to local rumors, almost the very daughter of the then red-haired "father of a kumchovozka" (where does such a love of the Site's autocensorship to this "ukroprezik" and his sponsor surname, perhaps, or someone from his Family come from? ??) "?!) the former Training Center for combat divers of the USSR Navy on the artificial island of Pervomaisky (located exactly on the navigable fairway, between Ochakov and Kinburn Spit) ...

    And, all the previous recent forecasts about the "collapse" ended in a zilch.

    And trade wars like this are going on all the time. They just don't write to the media. These are not under-rockets "in the next 5 years"
    The last "fish" war, it seems, was about 2 years ago ...

    A week has passed, but Britain has not yet collapsed! The British do not bomb Paris, and London does not blow up air-raid sirens. Something went wrong.
