The birds that live on Rockall are quite loud and fat so I guess the Scots could probably claim them as their own.

Declare war on Scotland so. We've never declared war before on another country - It will he like old times when Gael fought Gael...

Exactly. Braveheart didn't involve a navy - but the FCA still braved their arses

So if UK naval vessels arrest Irish fishing vessels I presume we will be sending our own naval vessels?

how about this, the UK gets the entire northern third of our island and we get a tiny rock in the north sea?

No they don't. The UK government has those. The Scottish government have strongly worded letters and an inflatable dinghy.

We are part of the European Union - whose fishermen also fish there.

If the Scots arrest our fishermen then we should send just one OPV and arrest theirs.

Although I am still at a loss as to how Scotland intends to enforce something they have zero capability of doing.

Being served enforcement action by the Scottish Government feels a bit like the international relations equivalent of being served enforcement action by your local community council.

No offence lads, but you're not a real country and it's not a real government, so just go away will ya.

Maybe if they ask their (soon to be) new leader Boris nicely, he might give the issue a mention while he's giving away their fishing rights in return for a few crumbs from the EU table after Brexit.

I hope they've learned from their Cod War experience.
