EU Probes U.S. Biodiesel Subsidies in New Trade Row - Nogger

The European Union is a little bit annoyed that the Yanks are pissing all over us once again.

"I've always liked the sound of my own voice," said Peter Power, a spokesman for EU Trade Commissioner Peter Mandelson.

We've handed the Yanks a massive loophole and they're milking it for all they're worth.


It's just a coincidence that you are stupid enough to let us increase our exports from about 7,000 tonnes in 2005 to about 1 million tonnes in 2007.

Brussels now has up until March 13, 2009 to piss around and prevaricate whilst the Yanks mercilessly continue to tear the arse out of the job, laughing all the way to the bank.

After that Brussels will have a bit of a moan, the Yanks will say, ha ha, well we aren't going to eat your stinking French cheese then, Brussels will say sorry, then we'll all carry on like before.
