    Trade Deals

    We were away on leave the last 7-8 days, and offline the whole time. So today has been busy clearing email and catching up on the news.

    I see in the meantime that Boris and his trade colleagues have been busy, and some FTA's have been concluded (specifically one with Scotty in Australia):

    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/u...-b1866496.html

    Interesting to note that the 15 year protection (to be implemented for UK farmers) was actually withdrawn from the final agreement - despite some media saying otherwise.

    No doubt some big UK / Australian celebrations for the politicians, and that the EU (China) will be crying in their beer (wine) at the news.

    I did wonder when a UK - NZ FTA will be concluded. And what goods might be included:

    Not everybody in the UK is thrilled. There's a thing circulating on social media comparing animal welfare reglations in Britain with those in Australia. Basically it's making the case that Australia doesn't have any. Quite damning if it's accurate.

    Of course, all the Guardian reading Remainers are furious that the thing they said couldn't be done is being done and making them look foolish - so now they are coming up with every reason under the sun to be outraged.

    I think I posted the clip of James O'Brien vs Jacob Rees-Mogg where Australia was brought up as an example - Funny how back then (when they didn't think a Trade Deal was possible) no one was raising the issue of Australian Animal welfare standards...

    They rank ahead of some other EU countries.
    Whilst it's true they do lack a cohesive national standard this is not because they don't have rules, it just as they have traditionally had a state-by-state set of rules.
