Nigel Farage dumped dead haddock off a fishing trawler dubbed "HMS Brexit" Wednesday morning as he led a protest against the Government's Brexit transition deal.
The former UKIP leader and other Leave campaigners sailed on a fishing trawler, before stopping outside Parliament to ceremonially throw crates of dead haddock overboard.
Watching on from the Commons balcony were a small gathering of flag waving MPs - including Tory Sir Desmond Swayne.
Stuck between a Rock and a hard Plaice
Speaking to Sky News, Mr Farage said he was "very" disappointed and that "promises were made that haven't been kept".
"The ludicrous situation is that haddock stocks in the West Country are very good indeed.
"And yet the total allocation of haddock for the British fleet is 9%.
"What that means is the guys are going out fishing for other species, catching haddock because they can't avoid them - and fish like this are being thrown back dead.
"It's just mad, the whole thing."
Turbot charged fishing
There were similarly comic scenes as the morning progressed, when the Fishing for Leave organisers realised they could not dock at Embankment Pier for a press conference led by backbench Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg.
Mr Rees-Mogg said he wouldn’t be doing any haddock tossing himself, saying “I am not a fish-thrower”.
I've haddock enough of the TFL Basstards
A Transport for London spokeswoman told Sky News that no permission had been given to the group to dock, leaving the boat officially named "Holladays R8" to do repeated laps on the Thames.
A police boat later arrived and escorted them back up the river.
Don't tell him, Pike
Pro-EU campaign group Best for Britain said: "The Brexiteers are lost at sea. Today's comedy of errors is a metaphor for their Brexit plans."
"Taking back control from faceless bureaucrats but maybe they need to start with Transport for London who run the pier they tried to dock at. All in all this was a fishing farce that made them all look ridiculous."
They do realise that a hard Brexit would mean tariffs that completely annihilate the UK fishing industry, right? I swear, I have all kinds of sympathy for people in hard up coastal towns but some people are just too stupid for their own good. Farage helping them campaign for their own doom is yet further proof of what a horrible toad he is.
