EU Suspends NZ Butter

This should make us all wonder what the EU is about.

Agriculture industry leaders say an internal problem in the European Union needs to be sorted out by the Union without resorting to punishing New Zealand butter imports. The European Commission Agriculture Minister has received a letter from our (NZ) government protesting a suspension of butter imports from New Zealand. It is a technical row, brought to court by a dairy company in Germany. Egenberger GmbH challenged, among other things, the rule that only Britain is responsible for issuing import licences. That prompted The European Commission to announce a retrospective import suspension.

Yo! Blair! What are you going to do about it?
