    Lula da Silva is right! The possibility of Latin-American countries dumping cheap foodstuffs garnered by unacceptable means must be avoided. No GM crops, no growth hormones, “antibiotics” controlled to EU standards, mined products to be free of cyanide and cyanate processes. Prices for South American products to be fixed by reference to EU prices for the same products, e.g. Argentine beef offered at £2.00 per kilo, EU beef offered at £4.00 per kilo. Argentine beef subject to £2.50 per kilo import tax. And so on. EU products must come first. If South America wants access to European markets, it will need to pay for it.
