He's watching things carefully at the moment, since the threats to the electricity supply could definitely make things complicated.
That's why God invented the UPS and the Honda generator.

We have us. France has their forces, and all their EU colleagues who would doubtless help.

Whoops.

Plus NATO members are bound by treaty not to attack other members. Any action against France would be suicidal for the UK.

Good article here.

In essence, the dispute has nothing to do with Brexit and is everything to do with Brexit.

The complex pattern of fishing rights around and in between the Channel Islands has been a vexed question for centuries. Such rights were outside the EU Common Fisheries Policy.

In 2000, Britain and the Channel Islands government signed an agreement with France (The Treaty of the Bay of Granville) which established a pattern of rights for French boats up to 3 miles from the islands’ coasts. Last year, Britain and the islands said they were terminating the treaty as part of the “it’s all our fish now” policy as the end of Brexit transition approached. An interim deal was reached.
