The EU is digging its own grave. They're engaged in a one-way trade war against the UK. They're trying to empty supermarket shelves in NI, purely for their own political ends. And they're trying to separate NI from GB. They've shown how incompetent they are with the ongoing vaccine farce. They use politics to bully any country without or within the EU that doesn't toe their line. They'd rather cause grief to commerce even within the EU than adapt policies to reality. They've made it as clear as day for anyone to see - and yet so many still cling on to the illusion that the EU in its present form is a wonderful institution. Amazing, but was ever thus - remember the yarn about the emperor who wasn't wearing any clothes; not much changes.

As I said yesterday - good luck to em if they think they are going to keep the lid on inflation the way this lot like chucking money about. Oil rising pretty quickly so there you go. Nurses offered 1%. See how long that lasts. On the radio yesterday about 50% are fatties. Not a good example for UK Obese inc.

Ending US tariffs on exports is a major win for Global Britain Trade breakthrough shows we can do more to stand up for British industry than was possible as part of the EU – and deliver more jobs LIZ TRUSS 4 March 2021 • 6:00pm https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2021/03/04/ending-us-tariffs-exports-major-win-global-britain/ As the world recovers from coronavirus, we need to draw a line under trade disputes which risk holding back our businesses and people. Neither side benefits from tit-for-tat tariffs, which drive up costs for consumers and producers alike. The feud between the United States and the European Union over aircraft subsidies for Boeing and Airbus shows how damaging things can become, with other industries unfairly embroiled in the process. We have seen American tariffs hitting our exports of Scotch whisky and pork, while our allies across the Atlantic suffered levies in turn on goods like sweet potatoes and ketchup. This trade dispute has dragged on for over 16 years, making it one of the longest-running in the world. But we are using our freedom as an independent trading nation to finally bring it towards an end. On January 1, I demonstrated the UK’s commitment to resolving this dispute with its single biggest trading partner by proactively removing a range of tariffs on American goods. Our clear show of good faith brought the US back to the negotiating table and allowed us to make proposals for a resolution. This is Global Britain in action: securing new opportunities as a newly nimble nation. I am delighted to say that our American allies – under their new President and his hard-working staff at the US Trade Representative – have embraced our move to seek a fair settlement. We have agreed to suspend all US tariffs on UK exports arising from this protracted dispute. This breakthrough shows that we can do more under our values-driven approach to stand up for British industry than was possible as part of the EU – and we can deliver even more too. The benefits of this four-month tariff suspension will be felt across every region and nation of the United Kingdom, especially in Scotland. Our Scotch whisky, the UK’s largest food and drink export in 2020, will be even better value for consumers in the United States, its most valuable market. The easier it is for Americans to buy a bottle of Macallan, Talisker or Glenfiddich, the more money those producers will have to invest in their businesses, their staff and futures. That will help distillers to grow their businesses through exporting. According to industry estimates, over 50,000 people work in Scotch whisky, or have their livelihoods supported through its supply chain. Put simply, trade equals jobs. Before readers enjoy a dram to celebrate, there is more to welcome from this announcement. The suspended tariffs will benefit our great pork producers in Yorkshire and the East of England like Cranswick, our makers of cashmere knitwear in Ayrshire and our producers of choice cheeses like Stilton in the Midlands. Such opportunities will help level up the UK by securing jobs and prosperity across the country. This shows what our deeper engagement with the US as two great independent trading nations can accomplish. Last year, we saved our exports of gin, beer and sparkling wine from new tariffs, and removed them altogether on exports of shortbread. And now, we are de-escalating tariffs in a move which will create space for us to resolve the trade dispute around Airbus and Boeing for good. There is a lot to gain in doing so. A fair and balanced settlement would support the livelihoods of thousands working in aerospace firms, from Airbus in Broughton and Belfast to Boeing in Sheffield and Farnborough. We are determined to work with our close allies – the United States – to build on our trading relationship and put these futile disputes behind us. I have no doubt that we can seize this opportunity as a landmark in our flourishing trading relationship with the US. By taking it to new heights, we can boost high-quality jobs in the industries key for our future, from advanced manufacturing and agriculture to services and technology. We have already made extensive progress towards an ambitious trade deal, which could go further by eliminating almost half a billion pounds in tariffs on UK exports. The UK and US are united in our determination to build back better, and that mission goes beyond our shores. Together, we can write a new chapter for global trade, with the UK a newly-independent trading nation once again, a new US administration in place, and a new director-general at the World Trade Organisation. It is time to turn the page on winner-takes-all feuds to focus on the win-win opportunities for our people. That is why we are working with our like-minded democracies such as the US to lead the charge for modern rules fit for 21st century trade. At this critical moment in our history, we are sending a powerful signal that the best way forward for us all lies in free and fair trade.

No inflation. Now theres a thought from someone of my generation. Imagine taking out a mortgage at 30 and by the time you pay it off at say 60 the monthly payment is the same as it was at the start and so is the value of your house !!!

diku They had better be as Sunak is encouraging those who cant afford a deposit to take on huge debt which will also lead to an artificial increase in house prices (which even less can then afford) which adds to inflation. At the same time we are all getting our gas boilers ripped out and our diesel cars crushed so we can buy nice new expensive ones if we can still afford em as on line shopping getting taxed. At least the price of a pint has been frozen. Clever that as thousands of locals wont ever reopen (apart from Rishis which his mates are buying). IMO they could have their work cut out keeping 'their foot on the throat of the (next)beast'. Border issues with our EU 'friends' aint gonna help either

lefrene Carrington as most people knew what was happening. The issue really was the miscalculation that no one thought the Argies were up for the bargie. I dont think most Argies did either only the idiot Galtierie. A bit like Sturgeon and Macron. Little stagers trying to be big time charlies. You can imagine Kim firing one off at Japan or S Korea. Maybe his work better than Musk's - ha

I agree. Round and round it goes. I was thinking about this recently and was trying to understand it by bringing it down to a smaller scale. Imagine a large group of people of say 30 sitting around a large table. All may have different skills and things to sell to each other and each have some money to spend (UK pounds) - all good. But then one of these people (the government) can stealthily add to their UK pounds and add as much as they wish. So over time where will we end up with this one player 'gaming' the system? I can only think we must get significant inflation eventually.

The "debt" is fictional money borrowed by the Gov from the Bank of England. Where did the BoE get it from? The local computer....magic Who owns the BoE? The government. Round and round it goes...

If the debt keeps on pilling up then the constant talk of this money somehow has to be paid back becomes irrelevant...

No Govt here is allowed to produce anything but a balanced budget - similarly no LA etc How the debt is accounted for and settled should be explained in the forward plan. The debt has to be repaid or the Govt goes broke. As I see it - and yes it does matter. There is always a day of reckoning. Germany thought it could get out of it by devaluation - similarly Venezuela.

It is quantitative easing, money created out of thin air owed to nobody .... unfortunately I have no idea how they retire it without causing some serious trust/confidence issues

The dafter and dafter column. Italy stopping AZN made in Italy vaccine being sold to Oz, even though the EU didn't want the stuff - and a helluva lot of EU citizens still won't take it after being put off it by EU leaders. So the EU now decides on commercial transactions. Commie state, innit.
