Being hailed as a new dawn by Johnson, it seems from the little that has been put into the public forum, Australia has gained far more than the U.K. from this deal.
It is centred almost entirely on goods with the intention of eliminating tariffs over the next 15 years.
It will save each U.K. consumer 52p per year.
Under 35s can extend their holiday visa without having to work in Australia.
Farms will be protected by a cap on tariff free imports for 15 years.
Nothing has been said about the importation of hormone fed beef or animal welfare.
More than 30 active substances are allowed for example on sugar cane that are illegal in the U.K. e.g. paraquat
Antibiotics are used as growth promoter. Banned in U.K. 16 times more in use for poultry and triple in pogs.
Tariffs on wine will be eliminated saving 7-8p a bottle .
No vote on deal by parliament. But deal will be scrutinised once done.
Democracy seems to have a different meaning in the U.K. to how it is generally understood.
For Australian farmers it is a big win.
For U.K. farmers it is a big lose. It is expected that many farmers will go to the wall.
All for the sake of adulterated meat.
