Well, the EU can apply more sanction although there are already a huge number if these imposed already. Additionally, as sanctions are imposed, Putin simply overrides these by supplementing the impact of any sanctions with more support. This in turn alienates and brings Belarus closer to Russia every time the west does this. Sure you can ban Belarussian airlines from landing at European airports and make Belarussian airspace a no go zone but the real issue is Russia, which will cancel out any impact on this relatively small country.

Sanctions only hurt the normal residents of Belarus, the 'elite' will feel no effect from them as they will receive reciprocal support from Russia.

Lowish oil prices hurt Russia and the Belarussian economy is dependant on Russia.

An enjoyable throw-back to the cold war.

I was half-expecting Michael Caine and Colonel Stock.

Or Callan versus 'Richmond'.

Those were the days.

The best film ever for me 'The Spy who came in from the cold'.

Switzerland walks away from EU deal

[Link]

13 years of talks down the drain. The EU again pushing for too much, after Brexit you would have hoped that they would have realised this was an opportunity to create a template which perhaps the UK and other non EU countries might have considered in the future.

Freedom of movement for workers was the sticking point again.

President Van Useless not covering herself in glory.

From our perspective now, it's probably best that the whole thing falls apart and gets put back together again in terms of ease of trade, but not the fixation on freedom of movement. Sure it's a privilege to be able to more where we wish, but without limits the pace of change is too fast. That's the sad thing about our relationship with the EU, if they had been reasonable something of mutual benefit (that would've actually benefited the whole of the EU) could've been thrashed out.

"Boris Johnson warned not to strike Australia trade deal that could 'decimate' British farming"

[Link]

Not a nice place trying to make deals as a 3rd country, especially when you have a government that doesn't care about local industry.

Any trade negotiation will impact somebody so far I have not heard what the UK will benefit from and that to me is the key question. I am not in favour of giving up our farming industry for nothing so what do we get in return.

As for our farmers they have had 40 years of being funded by the taxpayer (CAP) and yet we have had many food / health scandals during this time.

They may not be able to compete with Australian large scale farming so they should focus on quality.

I would like to see any taxpayer support focused on free range, organic and environmental friendly produce, the public can then make the choice as to what they buy.

Not surprising at all as the report also states the reason:

"China was the only major economy to see its global trade grow last year as it became the first big country to emerge from the pandemic."

However it also states:

"Despite a 23.1% fall in total trade with European Union countries as a whole in the period, the EU remains the UK's biggest trading partner, the report found."

To put things into perspective, in 2020 Germany was the 3rd largest exporter of goods in the world, more than double the the value of UK exports at nearly 1.4 trillion. Germany has a population only 20% larger than the UK. It's really no contest in global trade.
