Negotiations for a trade and cooperation agreement between Mercosur and the European Union must continue and should not be overshadowed by political issues such as the impeachment process in Brazil, pointed out Paraguay's foreign minister Eladio Loizaga, following a motion by 15 Green Euro and United Left parliamentarians in Strasbourg to cancel discussions because of the “corruption contaminated” removal of Dilma Rousseff.

    The EU has failed after 5 years to have a trade deal with the Americans,
    Failed with china,
    and apparently she has cocked up the agreement with south Korea,

    so you guys have no chance.
    so they say.

    “which the two blocks started discussing in 1999”

    So it's only in the SEVENTEENTH year, don't know what the rush is for!

    I was told by my Escribana when I arrived in UYU that 'we work to the ten years rule, we take ten years to think if we should do it, ten years to get the enabling legislation and ten years to implement it'. I think there is a lot of truth in that!

    So who gives a rat's arse what the 15 imbeciles in the Lefty European Parliament think ? They have a very strange idea of what “'corruption contaminated” means ...they should look in the mirror.

    There's already trade taking place. Any sort of agreement will only be a back and forth trading of advantages for politically-favored groups and industries that will profit the politicians and their favorites at the expense of the public. There's no need of trade agreements -- the need is for reduction (or elimination) of tariffs and trade restrictions so that people can buy what they want, where they want, and at the best price they can find.

    While there is not a leader elected by the people, any agreement will be liable to be set aside.

    “You are the only 'smart' guy on the 'planet. '”if I had ever stated that you'd have posted a link. Since you won't be able too, it'll be just one porky, in a long link of porkies
    Like the last post “Your attempts to shift your burden to some utterly irrelevant personal issue is simply a diversion.”
    “As if their content is what rules the world…..”It does in these matters. But, you clearly are person that will not countenance anything that attempts to impose limits on conduct that is inherently unfair. Which is perfectly in tune with your political beliefs.
    “I think that “Shifting the burden”, in this case, is quite the right thing to do”. You may well consider such a self-serving opinion the right thing to do. But I have posted ten viable sites that say you can't do it because it's considered an abuse. “Despite the fact that you never PROVE anything” I am bound by the same rules, If I make an assertion then I have to provide evidence that confirms it. I guess to a dip-shit like you I might appear to be a little more than human.

    @7 Hill
    Post a link ? why ? all the evidence required to prove that you believe you are the 'smartest' guy on the planet, is readily available in your supercilious posts.
    Glad to see that I am ruffling your feathers, you stinkin' old buzzard.

    “All the evidence required to prove that you believe you are the 'smartest' guy on the planet” Is solely dependent on your long discredited personal opinion ha, ha.
    The only thing that has been proved is that I'm certainly smarter than you as I have, and will continue to beat you hands down.
    Careful now, don't let your brains go to your head!
