"the basis for our independence is economic independence". 

Icelandic  fisheries minister Ludvik Jósepsson 

 

This was one of the reasons for the war between Iceland  and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

 

A war over fish.

 

This happened in 1974.

 

Now that there is a deperature from Europe perhaps it would be time for politicians to examine the importance of fishery in the debate over livelihoods and independence.

 

Especially since  lessons have been  drawn from this  war over fish between Iceland and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland which  have been applied to  theories on international relationships perhaps the politicans missed those lessons
