UK announces new post-Brexit global tariff regime

Recommended Posts

Thank God a new Brexit thread. That'll keep the remainers and EU guys out of our Trump threads for awhile. 😆

Economic illiterate it is then.

 

Calling me a communist for arguing for free market competition. 
 

You are the one advocating for industries protected by a government mandated tariff wall - and having people pay more for things when they shouldn’t have to.

 

But yeah, maybe you prefer working in sheltered workshops? 

 

As for the conflating this with me supporting the EU tariff policy, where have I said that?

 

Oh that’s right, I didn’t. You just made it up. 

Careful, or the chips on each side of your shoulders might fall off.

So UK must have free market competition, but the EU tariffs are all OK? Or is this just your Anglophobia getting the better of your boganomics class? Guess what, neither Oztralya or Thailand have free market competition but heaps of tariffs. Psst, they certainly don't have free movement of people or goods either.

 

Tariffs are been around for donkeys and are here to stay, whether your Outback Peoples Republic likes it or not. Expect some new ones protecting UK industries and economy soon. While we are at it, we'll ditch the EU ones that stifle our economy and overcharge UK consumers. We will cherry pick what's best for UK.

Geez, there must be a real comprehension problem with you. I guess I can't expect that much from a bloke who drops 'globalists' in his posts - a term used exclusively by tin foil hat wearers, anti-vaxxers and 5G protesters.

 

Where did i say EU tariffs are okay? Oh that's right, i didn't. You just keep making that up.

 

As for Australia not having either free market competition and having heaps of tariffs...again, your economic illiteracy comes out shining. We have free movement with NZ and one of the worlds most flexible immigration policies. Anywhere between 250K and 400K new immigrants per year.

 

Australia is a leader in competition policy and has one of the lowest overall tariff rates globally. Its average trade weighted tariff is 0.86% (https://wits.worldbank.org/countrysnapshot/en/AUS/textview).  (But not being good with numbers, I'll tell you that that 0.86% is low).

 

The UK can have tariffs all they want for all I care. They just come with a cost and will only end up benefiting the powerful rather than workers. But I guess that's what you want. A bit like Thailand where the gap between rich and poor is one of the most extreme in the world.  

 

History teaches us some lessons here, the Smoot Halwley tariffs in the US in the 1920's made the great depression worse. I guess that's what you want!

Blimey strewth Blue. And here's me thinking that you are spouting on this Brexit thread that the UK can't leave the EU (with its' tariffs) or impose the UK's own, but now we can for all you care. 

 

Crikey, it's your very own class war against rich blokes. Yeah, no, mate, pity about us poor ockers who lost our jobs when whole industries are lost to foreign imports You know, those where the products can be knocked out by some blokes who are wage slaves in third world countries. Still they're the workers too (like we used to be) and probably mean much more to you in your global campaign against those rich barstewards.  Up the workers and I'm alright Jack. 

 

Sorry mate, but a link to some personal finance site does sweet fa for your boganomics credibility. OMG you're not an IFA are you?

Sorry, I was trying to keep it easy to read for you given your obvious challenge with anything economics.

 

I see you missed the world bank link though shooting down your economic ‘knowledge’ (555), but as a source it’s probably too ‘internationalist’ and ‘globalist’ for a man of the people like yourself. 
 

Feel free to google more serious articles if you want. They’ll largely say the same thing. 
 

Please do however continue with your Barrie McKenzie impersonation. Very clever, although you do come across as a dill in the same way Dick Van Dyke did in Mary Poppins. 
 

Still, Barry sounds like the last exposure to Australia you’ve had - not the 30 years of unparalleled economic growth and record low unemployment we’ve had. 
 

Very amusing that Bazza is your only reference, but I shouldn't be suprised given you sound like you are stuck in the 1970s. 
 

 

Yeah, Bazza was great. As were the 70s, at least until we were sold down the river into the fake Common Market. Were you even around then, or Is it all history to you, something that you picked up from students union leftist pamphlets and hippy lecturers?  Never mind though, come the revolution comrade, if you keep up the BS you could always be Australia's Second Working-Class Hero. 

 

In the meantime, no googling or foreign wannabe opinion is necessary. Boris and the UK government have proper economists, who know what's best for our nation, its citizens, industries and economy. So roll out the tariffs.

Free movement with NZ, with a population of less than 5 million. Hardly comparison to EU FOM. 

And yes, Australia adapts immigration policy to suit their needs. They currently need immigration to boost population numbers. And once they don't need more immigration, guess what they'll do - tighten immigration policy. 

And that's exactly how the UK can operate from now on.
