Just not listening

It WOULD appear the SNP don’t listen very well to the Scottish fishermen who are very angry at the introduction of 30 Marine Protection areas in Scottish waters, saying it will lead to more dangerous fishing and could damage the fragile fishing communities and even a bring repeat of the Highland clearances.

I’m all for conservation of our Scottish seas, but this must be done on a consultative basis rather than ticking boxes and forcing through unacceptable changes.
