Its always been the same with Britain and France Ever since Agincourt and Henry V...which reminds me, the V is a long lasting sign we've always given the French

Francis Speirs Shouldn’t expect too much historical perspective or depth of analysis from our Swashbuckling Brexiteer friends . Giving the V was to show that you could still draw a longbow (captured ennemy archers during the 100 year war had their draw fingers cut off). So its quite interesting that Mr Hawley want to give the V to the French ( and EU?) when the brexiteers have no arrows to shoot. Unless of course he was just being crude which would illustrate my first point.

Igor Mavriky. You are quite quite wrong. The V sign was to show the French that our archers were more skilled than their French counterparts Nothing to do with having your draw fingers chopped off. However, it has become a sign to tell someone where to go. Has as been said on numerous occasions, the EU was set up by the French for the French, but now they seem to think that British waters belong to them. But would they let British trawlers fish in French waters? I very much doubt it. Hence V
