Complaints about Nigel Farage fly tipping fish have been submitted to Westminster Council after yesterday’s protest by the former Ukip leader on the Thames.
Farage joined a raft of protesters campaigning for a revision of fishing quotas during the Brexit transition.
The red, white and blue fishing boat sailed down the River Thames before stopping in front of Parliament and dumping the crates of dead haddock, which symbolise the stock that gets thrown back into the sea because of stringent allocations off the coast of Britain.
But several people have taken issue with the stunt, reporting Farage for fly-tipping fish carcasses.
A link to Westminster Council’s “fly tipping and enforcement” page made the rounds on social media, although no arrests were made on the day.
“Instead of throwing dead fish in the Thames, Farage should have done his job as a member of the fisheries committee”

Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
