    Why we do not first liberalize trade among BRICS?

    Mercosur needs to liberalis trade among itself before it makes plans outside the zone. It is a dysfunctional organisation that was created as a free trade zone and has been hijacked to become a political talking shop instead.

    Stunning photograph:
    The horse looks frightened by what it sees;
    Bolivar just looks pissed at them;
    “No Money Pepe” looks like the confused old drunk that he is;
    MADuro looks like he is giving the RC forehead, tit, tit and bollocks blessing;
    TMBOA looks like she is 'waving goodbye' if only;
    The guy from Paraguay has porked up a bit;
    While the Cowpat just looks his confused self as he mouths WTF am I doing here, a question he should be told the answer to: nothing so FO.

    15 years and counting and it's not over yet folks!

    cornelius, the “B” of the BRICS means South America. Therefore, the size of Western dissent is much larger than your imagination.

    ““B” of the BRICS means South America”

    No it doesn't. Brazil operates within BRICS out of its own self interest not on behalf of South America.

    @8 Brasil is going backwards, in recession and you cling to your ideology. Brazil needs to integrate its economy with world trade rules and standards and improve effciency. However it will never get there unless it breaks the shackles of this Mercosur agreement, Argentina ties a millstone round Brazil's neck and the socialists in Brazil are too dumb/indoctrinated/scared to break away due to some sort of illusion that they have that they must stand by their socialist brothers. Brazil is heading the way of Argentina as an economy, i.e. a failure.

    Seriously, why would The EU want anything to do with Latam countries, personally I don't see anything advantageous to us that would warrant a deal with 3rd World countries.

    Wow! So they have agreed on a proposal finally. Whoo-hoo!
    Still a long way from an actual deal. I imagine it will come back from Brussels looking like a particular incompetent naughty child's homework. Big red lines through most of it. “You need to pay more attention in class and not be distracted by your mates squabbling in the sandpit”
    PS: Please remind your mother to pay this term's lunch money, and we note that last year's fees are still in arrears.
