Fast-moving Brexit Britain shows up the ever-lumbering EUEU-Aus trade deal?  3 years on, and it's "Ding ding, Round 11!"?© Facts4EU.Org 2021Brexit put a bomb under the EU, but still they can't do a simple trade deal with a country like AustraliaBeing an open and outward-looking country (like Brexit Britain), Australia has wanted to do a trade deal with the EU for many years. In theory there was nothing preventing this except the EU Commission's apparent lack of interest in trade.Under EU diktat, Australia could only do a trade deal with the UK once the UK had left the EU which happened on 01 Jan this year. As Facts4EU.Org reported way back in late 2016, the EU Commission specifically forbade the UK Government from having trade talks with other countries such as Australia until it formally left. This was not contained in any EU laws or treaties, it was a diktat from the Commission.The UK-Aus deal is now agreed in principle, announced by UK Prime Minister Johnson and Australian Prime Minister Morrison in London on Tuesday 15 June 2021 after less than six months of detailed talks. Facts4EU.Org will report further on this when the official papers have been published.?Does the EU employ "Trade Prevention Officers"?Meanwhile the EU-Aus trade deal lumbers on. According to the EU Commission's Trade Directorate the talks with Australia reached Round 10 in March, after starting on 18 June 2018 – almost exactly three years ago.Judging from the summary documents of the last round which Facts4EU.Org has studied, there is still a long way to go before any agreement in principle will be reached. Round 11 is due to start in the coming two weeks.How Brexit put a bomb under the EUFor years the Commission seemed to have little interest – and certainly no sense of urgency - in its trade talks with other countries. This all changed after the UK's EU Referendum result, when the EU suddenly started scrabbling around for any trade deal it could find.The Commission's new and sudden enthusiasm for trade did not start well, however. Some months after the Leave vote, the EU's talks with the US broke down completely and the US withdrew. And this was while the USA was still under the Europhile presidency of Barack "UK will be at the back of the queue" Obama.The EU's attention then turned to Canada – a popular choice for the French. Talks had started in 2004 in Ottowa and a deal of sorts was finally done in September 2017, called 'CETA'. It remains unratified to this day, 17 years after the talks began. As the Commission itself says:"National parliaments in EU countries – and in some cases regional ones too – will then need to approve CETA before it can take full effect."- EU Commission website, accessed 16 Jun 2021Taking into account upper and lower chambers, and regional parliaments, we believe that over 35 approvals across the EU27 countries will be required before this trade deal is fully ratified.Should Australia even bother with the EU?In 2019 when the UK was still an EU member country, Facts4EU.Org analysed the trade figures from the EU, from Australia's Dept of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), and from the Australian Bureau of Statistics.?© Brexit Facts4EU.Org - click to enlargeLooking at Australian exports, the UK accounted for 40% of Australia's sales of goods and services to the EU28. So for Australia, when the EU28 lost the UK and became the EU27, the European Union plunged in size from nearly $AUD 30 billion down to less than $18 billion.The vast bulk of Australia's EU trade deficit (when the UK was still a member) was with the EU27?© Brexit Facts4EU.Org - click to enlargeLooking at the balance of trade between Australia and the EU, in 2017/2018 it was negative to the tune of A$47 billion. In other words the EU was selling Australia 47 billion dollars worth of goods and services more than Australia was selling to the EU.However, it was not Australia's trade with the UK that was the problem. 91% of Australia's trade imbalance with the EU was down to the EU27 countries, not the UK, despite the UK accounting for 40% of Australia's EU exports.OBSERVATIONSBonzer news about Brexit for AustraliaThe good news for Australia is that the EU's loss is Australia's gain. When the UK was freed from the EU's common commercial tariff and protectionist policies, it became an even more attractive destination for Australian companies selling their goods and services.Naturally it's still worth Australia pursuing a trade deal with the EU27, if it can get them to reduce their protectionist high tariffs and the other barriers on so many goods that Australia would like to export to them. At the current rate of slow progress, however, this does not look like happening any time soon.Cue the Britain-bashersWith regard to the new UK-Australia trade deal, the 'usual suspects' amongst the Britain-bashing, pro-EU lobby in the United Kingdom have been highly vocal in their opposition. This is interesting mainly because the precise terms of the deal have not yet been published.It is also notable that none of these complainer-remainers seem to be concerned about the massive quantity of exports sent over the Channel by the EU, which completely dwarf any possible exports by Australia to the UK. These imports to the UK include food products and livestock. We find it odd that the pro-EU National Farmers Union seems to have no concerns whatsoever about the impact of the EU27 countries dumping their wares on the UK.Facts4EU.Org will review the UK-Australia trade deal when the details are released.

Time to trust people more. Time to control people less.JUNE 17, 2021 5 COMMENTSI will post this morning the text of my speech yesterday in Parliament about the planned extension to the lockdown. I joined with others to vote against the measures, and spoke in favour of an alternative approach.Yesterday with full Opposition backing Parliament voted to delay the return of a full Parliament. All the time we are encouraged to join remotely, all the time seats are very limited in the chamber, all the time you need to bid for a speaking slot in advance and find your name on a published list, the scope for spontaneity and more challenge to government is limited. Parliament thrives on the  momentum of causes, on the noise of support and opposition, on the heat of the moment remark or intervention. Much of this is lost with a largely remote Parliament.The Opposition parties supported the government and most Labour MPs did not bother to join the debate. The few who did just wanted to exploit the latest  Cummings Revelations. It fell to Conservative MPs to question the policy and to make the case for a restoration of Parliament.Now the government has said we will have to live with the virus, and has stated it cannot be completely eradicated, the question is why not start doing that now? We accept all sorts of other risks in our lives. We all know there is no guarantee of immortality, and no government can protect us from all harms. Every time we cross a road, drive a car, fly in a plane, prepare food, stay in a railway carriage or on a bus with people with flu we run a risk of harm. It is important to let people decide for themselves how much risk of this virus they want to run, and offer them several ways of minimising that risk.We n ow want to get on with our lives. We now need to let people go to work and rebuild our prosperity... John Redwood

Truss closes in on New Zealand trade deal Deal with New Zealand is seen as a clear next step after Britain and Australia announced the outline of an agreement on Tuesday By Louis Ashworth and James Crisp, EUROPE EDITOR 16 June 2021 • 7:59pm Liz Truss at Downing Street on Wednesday Liz Truss will hold talks with New Zealand negotiators on Thursday as she seeks to pave the way for a trade deal with the country in a matter of weeks. The Trade Secretary's Kiwi counterpart, Damien O’Connor, flew to Britain on Wednesday and the pair had dinner, ahead of direct talks due to be held in the Locarno Room of the Foreign Office. It is the first time they have met in person. A deal with New Zealand is seen as a clear next step after Britain and Australia announced the outline of an agreement on Tuesday. The tie-up with Wellington is expected to follow similar broad strokes to the Australian deal – prising open the country for UK goods and services, but opening up British markets to exports sent by New Zealand farmers. A source at the Department for International Trade said: “We want to keep the momentum going that’s been created by the Aussie deal. The agreement will be similar in shape to Australia – so fundamentally liberalising, high standard and advanced in areas like services, reflecting our shared values and the kinship between our two countries. “The New Zealanders will need to give us much more on mobility, investment and services if they want an agreement, and Liz will be driving a hard bargain on that.” Government officials emphasised that any deal signed will maintain protections for UK farmers. The immediate economic benefits of a deal with New Zealand are likely to be negligible. The Government’s own analysis said the GDP impact over 15 years would be “close to zero” compared with not having a deal. However, Britain is seeking to show the world it is a free trading nation and it is hoped that larger and more lucrative deals will follow. The outline of the Australian deal met a frosty reception by many British farmers, who warned a gradual phasing-out of tariffs and quotas could leave the UK vulnerable to a flood of Aussie beef. The backlash continued on Wednesday, with Peter Hardwick from the British Meat Processors’ Association saying an influx of high-end cuts from Down Under could “skim the top off our home market and have a very negative effect on returns”.

According to the Mail he made 60m from Lloyds, Didnt even have the guts to take on the PPI case. When he realised what he had done he had a nervous breakdown. The real problem lies with the chairman and board who appoint the CEO.

It's not as simple as that. They cant take them back because they would have to decon them and certify they are ok etc etc. Crutches, boots etc are treated as disposable items for a reason. Think about it.

Antonio got his knighthood. He never put shareholders first, the main responsibility of a CEO. When people say all he did was feather his own nest with options, an over exaggerated remuneration award and screwing the banks shareholders, I am inclined to agree. When he arrived, the share price was 60+p he had a £9million golden hello, went on sick leave for stress, brought in his cronies from Santander to do a lot of his work whilst still getting a generous salary and bonus for not actually delivering anything himself. IMV parasite comes to mind

mm2, send them an official 28 days notice, and then dispose of it as you see fit. Send it to the home of the head of the hospital board, with a suggestion that it be sold and the proceeds used to defray that persons stipend. If this is happening to you it's likely it's happening all over the country, there could be a business in acting as a collection point and exporting the stuff to less careless parts of the world? Perhaps a letter to the press? NHS always screaming for more money, but look at all this waste, sort of story.
