France and UK have each sent two patrol boats. The UK are described as "Batch 2" somethings and the French simply as "maritime patrol boats." Meanwhile French fishermen declare they are "ready to restage the battle of Trafalgar" which is not something, were I French, that I would use as my historical reference.

Nonetheless, the British seem blockaded in their port. Hope this doesn't spiral out of control.

From a geopolitical caloric POV, which is more worth fighting for: beef, pork, chicken, fish (cod), shellfish, grain/rice or ice crème? They say if there were no chocolate, 50% of the world would go bonkers. The same is said about coffee.
