After looking at the link, again, it still only informs me that the RN role was only to stop the Icelandic coast guard cutting UK trawlers nets.
The reason why you make the mistake that the RN would do something is because your own govt, navy and coast guard are a bunch of stupid bullying authoritarian scum who would do something and you assume that other countries would be the same.
I was born in the UK and still live here, our culture is different. What has the UK govt ever done about Sealand? Answer nothing, ever.
Most nations take IUU (Illegal, Unreported, and Unregulated) fishing in their EEZ very seriously
I could paste many other links. And this is just illegal fishing. You try setting up a permanent colony, with intent to harvest energy and other resources, in a nation’s EEZ and they will shut you down.
Sealand is a special case, which will never EVER be duplicated. Seasteading will have to go outside the EEZ or it won’t happen at all.
I am sure that many nations do take these things seriously, however we are talking about the UK so links about what other nations have done is irrelevant bollocks.
1. What exactly would the RN do?
2. Why is Sealand a special case? And why will it never be replicated?
I’m mainly thinking about this in terms of seasteading within the 200nm limit around the UK; other countries will no doubt have differente laws. I’m wondering how much resource extraction we can do without getting into trouble…
Probably a fair bit, for three reasons.
1. It would take time for anyone to notice.
2. What would the Royal Navy do apart from keep you under surveilance.
3. The govt has never done anything to Sealand.
Personally, I think that starting a seastead micronation is possible within the EEZ of a country, as long as you’re outside the territorial waters of the country. Unfortunately, you’re not allowed artificial islands, according to the tyranny law of the sea.
