Pipelines Produce Peace and Prosperity; So Why Oppose Them?

Nordstream 2 is "a logical development stemming from the facts that Russia wants to provide gas and Germany wants to buy it, which led to a mutually acceptable agreement and commitment of many billions of dollars, largely by the firms Uniper and Wintershall of Germany, Royal Dutch Shell, Austria’s OMV and Engie of France in association with Russia’s Gazprom — an impressive example of European pragmatism."

The EU Isn’t Interested in Free Trade with the UK, Just Political Domination

"It’s ironic that while UK Remainers agonise endlessly over the supposed disastrous effects of the UK breaking away from the EU’s trade and regulatory system, the EU Commission appears to fear the precise opposite – that such a breakaway will allow a more nimble UK to thrive and leave the EU in its wake, and that such an outcome might encourage other member states to follow the UK out of the door."

Ethan Thoburn: Post-Brexit Priorities

"It is in the EU's best interest to get a FTA out of the transition period, if demand in Britain for goods and services from continental Europe drops, due to reciprocal restrictions or poor relations, for French wine and cheese or for German automobiles or for Italian food then it'll be the European Union and its businesses that will feel the brunt."

Catherine McBride: If I Were in Charge of the EU UK Trade Negotiations

"There are already 3 billion middle class people in the world and by 2030 AMRO estimates that there will be over 5 billion. As people become wealthier, they eat more, have money to save and invest, and have more leisure time. So UK industries should be looking for export opportunities outside the EU, not demanding protection, subsidies or tying themselves to EU regulations and the mythical level playing field."

Bill Blain: A Trade Agreement, Yeah!

"If I had the time this morning to trawl the last three years of trade headlines, I’d have analysed everything Donald Trump said he wanted from China and put them all on a list. I’d then put yesterday’s “agreement” beside it, and work out what’s missing. It’s likely to be a long list."
