The Prince of Darkness is upset.
European Union Trade Commissioner Peter Mandelson criticised Australia on Monday for taking the U.S. side in stalled World Trade Organization talks on global trade liberalization.You see, Mr Mandelson thinks that Australia should know its place, and bow down to its former Colonial Master. But instead the upstart colonials are completely disrespectful:
"At the moment we hear from some quarters, from the Australian government, a lot of bashing of Europe,"Has it never occured to Mr Mandelson that Australia, as a sovereign country, has the right to side with who it likes in international trade talks?
Stupid me, of course not, how could we expect an EU commisioner to understand the concept sovereign country?
