These guys need more than words.

Even when MPs get the chance to talk directly to a fishermen - in this case skipper David Stevens was sat in the wheelhouse of his trawler - they still seem unable to do anything other than espouse the party line. How on earth is that kind of response going to help him (having recently invested several million pounds in a new vessel) or all the other skippers affected by the deal? These guys don't need platitudes, the fishing support grant - if eligible - is just sticking plaster over a gaping wound.
