Australia-UK trade agreement:
Good, boring policy

Australia and the UK kicked off free trade agreement negotiations on 17 June to speeches and video presentations so triumphant as to border on self-parody. Yet for all the pageantry and scorn, a trade deal between Australia and the UK is fundamentally a commonsense policy that warrants neither breathless excitement nor derision.

In discussing the negotiations, the two sides inevitably cited existing levels of bilateral trade valued at just over A$30 billion, at last count.



Even if Australia secures a deal with the UK, its value will pale in comparison to Australia's exports to China, which were worth almost $150 billion last year.?
============

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC ) has given the green light to a $600 million deal that would see China Mengniu Dairy acquire Dairy Farmers.

Under the deal, which still needs Foreign Investment Review Board approval, Mengniu will acquire big-name Australian dairy and juice brands including Dairy Farmers, Big M, Pura, Daily Juice and Berri , the sale also includes Malanda Milk.

Mengniu is 20 percent owned by Chinese state interests. Commercial entities in China ultimately operate at the discretion of the Chinese Communist Party. The Party has shown itself to be willing to pull economic strings to punish those it thinks are acting contrary to it.

But this could be mitigated by the fact that Lion is located in Australia. Hence, Australian labour, competition, tax and hygiene laws apply. And if things got wildly out of control and Australia’s security was threatened by what was happening at Lion, then Australian law allows Canberra to nationalise the company.

England is only one of four countries in the UK, so you've missed a huge part of cultural heritage and identity there.

I'm mixed UK and European and I can't say I've ever been confused about which bits of my culture come from which country. I don't know why you think the UK part of my identity might have changed because of Brexit.

I haven't suddenly started patriotically waving the Union Jack, turned into a neo-Nazi, nor had hankerings for fish and chips fried in stale oil with lashings of chemical salt and non-brewed condiment.

Time will tell. It wasn’t the EU delIvering orphans to the door of kebab houses, and obviously Pakistan is not in Europe. The British left comes with us after we leave the fight has only just begun with the evil nerds, this spastic menace that would do anything to destroy the white rough for kicking them into a locker in high school. That kid you made fun of for his funny walk made it a long in the public sector, this is only the beginning of our defence against the dork arts.

OK, UK then, my apologize. Well among many identity changes, hasn't the UK Passport color changed? Isnt the uk going to focus more on domestic issues and generate more independent foreign policies, especially trade and less automatic support for the US.
