Mr Johnson will soon thrash out a trade deal with the EU when the UK exits the trade bloc on January 31. One of the key battlegrounds for those negotiations will be the future agreement over British fishing waters.

However, if Mr Johnson does not scrap the much-maligned Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) and secure British fishing waters, his time as Prime Minister could soon come to an end said Alan Hastings, one of the founders of Fishing for Leave.

 

Mr Hastings told Express.co.uk: “Boris needs to protect British waters.

“There is a huge public expectation that he will take back fishing from the EU.

 
 

“If he doesn’t, he will be wiped out.”

The CFP agreement was first created in the 1970s and has gone through a series of updates, the most recent of which was in 2014.

The agreement was created to manage fish stock across the EU, while also allowing member states to exploit the bloc’s large exclusive economic zone.

The agreement has long been criticised for exploiting the rich fishing waters around the UK and setting unreasonable quotas.

Mr Hastings argued the Prime Minister must use this opportunity to exercise the “ghost of Edward Heath” – the Prime Minister who led the UK into the EU – by becoming an independent state which controls its own waters.

Thanks to Brexit, Mr Hastings argued the UK can finally utilise its own waters similar to that of Norway and Iceland, both of which govern their own waters while being closely aligned with the EU.

He added: “We need to take the opportunity and rejuvenate the coastal towns.

“We need a clean break from CFP.

“If we don’t, it will pretty much be the end of UK fishing as we know it.
