Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
To be clear, it was your first comment on this post, beginning with: "Do not tell me what I appear to think. You're wrong about what I think, just as you're wrong about the politics of this country." And, in fairness, I have to come to some conclusion of what you think from the words you use and the view you express. That is what an attempt at understanding looks like. From prior private discussions I have taken that you don't share my concern for the economic impact of trade policies on those who are un or under employed as a result. I have tried to make the point that economics is fundamental and that failing to address negative economic impacts will, in time, undermine all the social issue progress we have made. That is exactly what I now see happening.
