If you need to attack me for my alleged violation of treaties, at least get up to date, . It's not 2005 any more, the people have spoken, the EEC ceased a long time ago, etc.

It's articles 29, 30 , ex 23, 24 TEC. You're welcome.

After and the new VAT rules, Finnish customs () have some harsh words for my books coming from across the channels.

EU VAT was paid and the seller is in IOSS. But Royal Mail put the envelope inside a 11 kg m-bag and hid all customs declarations. Masochism?

Non tutto il male vien per nuocere: grazie a , Tesco non esporta più in Finlandia e arriverà Carrefour.

Spero arriveranno fagioli italiani invece dei cinesi di prima, ma per ora c'è solo il tè (palese provocazione).

Yet for some reason I can't find a single trade union in asking for it. Not even urtu.com/our_aims . One union is too busy asking for more environmental destruction with : tssa.org.uk/news-and-events/ts .

Mentions of collective agreements are found only in statements by workers from EU countries.

"Labour Party adopts IER sectoral collective bargaining plan"

About time. The minimum wage figure got all the press but asking the government to facilitate a collective agreement for lorry drivers seems an easy way to find out whether they're serious about raising wages. Johnson is so brazen that he could pull it off and make it look like some newfangled invention allowed by , rather than something the Tories have spent half a century destroying. JFDI!

Right to a healthy environment accepted at the UN.

Delegates were reassured by Finland: the constitution states the same since 1999 at §20 but business as usual continued. Meanwhile police jeers democracy on Twitter and jails supporters of §20.

Il mio viale alberato preferito a è Pohjolankatu, qui visto dall'incrocio con via Kullervo (altro nome mitologico). Oso dire che i suoi tigli in autunno fanno competizione agli olmi di via Mac Mahon a Milano.

We undermine our own advocacy by not leading by example when we can. @mako's seminal essay mako.cc/writing/hill-free_tool makes the great point at we cannot allow ourselves to be at the whim of the companies whose tooling we do not control.
By ceding control to proprietary platforms, we set ourselves up for failure when they inevitably fall down or ask for more.

The EU-USA Pittsburgh Statement is a bag of contradictory slogans. Declares a , supports business as usual. Blames "non-market-based" economies and "state-owned enterprises" aka China, forgets fossil subsidies and corporate welfare.
