This includes: a mixture of tariffs and quotas on beef, lamb, pork, poultry and some dairy to support farmers and producers who have historically been protected through high EU tariffs retaining a number of tariffs on finished vehicles in order to support the automotive sector and in light of broader challenging market conditions.
However, car makers relying on EU supply chains would not face additional tariffs on car parts imported from the EU to prevent disruption to supply chains in addition, there are a number of sectors where tariffs help provide support for UK producers against unfair global trading practices, such as dumping and state subsidies. Tariffs would be retained for these products, including certain ceramics, fertiliser and bioethanol to meet our long-standing commitment to reduce poverty through trade, the government currently offers preferential access to the UK market for developing countries.
To ensure that access for developing countries is maintained, we would retain tariffs on a set of goods, including bananas, raw cane sugar, and certain kinds of fish Trade Policy Minister George Hollingbery said: Our priority is securing a deal with the European Union as this will avoid disruption to our global trading relationships.
Notes for editors It is not possible to leave things as they are: If we maintained our current external tariff regime and applied it to the EU, this would impose new tariffs on EU imports, driving up prices for consumers and disrupting business supply chains. If we fully maintained zero tariffs with the EU, we would also have to extend this to the rest of the world due to WTO rules.
This would minimise disruption to EU trade but would open the UK to competition from other countries including those with unfair trading practices. Businesses can find more information about our temporary tariff regime here.

This book is about a Dude traveling around New Zealand, staying at farm and homestays, which is like actually staying in someones home v. It was a very interesting read, being here and all! Made me kind of want to do that, sort of. But I like being alone and keeping to myself. And what if you stay with weird people?
I would hate that! But the back of the book had listings of some of the authors favourites, so I may have to look them up when I travel down south. It was a chatty book, which I liked. Dude drinks a lot of wine yay!

He is older and has a bit lots more money then I do to travel and see things, so that was kind of annoying. And fishes a lot, which I have no interest in, despite never being more then 40 miles from coastline learned that in the book! I have read books on New Zealand before I came here, but I really liked reading it while I was here and made me want to pick up a book I read in Hawaii last year about a dude hitch-hiking around both islands.
I read this other book a few months ago that the author actually mentions in his book and the guy sounds like an ass and he did in his book as well.

There are very few travelog books written about New Zealand and as much as I would love to write one, I don't have an angle or good stories to tell. I wish I was more chatty, but not really. Aug 08, Sally rated it it was ok Shelves: non-fiction. This was the second book that I purchased before our trip to New Zealand later this year.
We have been there on two previous occasions and love it, and always ken to pick up a few tips about places to visit that we may not have been before. To me the title implied that Alexander Elder was not going to follow the flock, he was going to do things differently.
The Settlers of Catan
Not so…his idea of being different was to use home stay accommodation rather than back packing, caravanning or motels. He set the tone from his first night in New Zealand, right down south on Stewart Island where he bad-mouthed his host whose only crime seemed to be taking Alexander in without a booking and not gushing over him.
He glossed over some of the tours he went on and sites he saw but concentrated on his opinion of a tour guide operator; this happened earlier on in the book when he went on a glacier walk where Alexander recounts the conversation but says nothing about the walk such as the views, the beauty — anything! Rating: D — Average - it was OK, a bit of a struggle to finish whatever redeemable aspects there were to this book, they were not fleshed out enough for me to truly enjoy it.

I was looking forward to reading this book as I love New Zealand and am about to embark on a travelling adventure there and so was hoping to pick up a few tips etc Unfortunately, the author was too absorbed by the materialistic aspects of his trip for my liking, which made the book a tad boring! The author is very happy to describe the wines he drinks in detail If he wishes to improve as a writer he needs to I was looking forward to reading this book as I love New Zealand and am about to embark on a travelling adventure there and so was hoping to pick up a few tips etc If he wishes to improve as a writer he needs to articulate his descriptions better and use some metaphors etc to really enable the reader to visualise I know how absolutely amazing New Zealand is and was hoping for a travellers' tale that would emphasise the wonder and beauty of this fantastic country.
The author praises the qualities of the New Zealanders, yet he himself is not as chilled out and easygoing as he professes to be He should try being more like a New Zealander!
Just because a little old lady doesn't welcome you like a long lost relative into her home late at night, it doesn't mean that you have to be so negative about your stay there Most people in his position after crashing his car and waiting for a tow etc would just want to get showered and head straight to bed, and not be dragged into a family environment where you are forced to be polite and have to endure polite conversation; I suspect the old lady was thinking of his feelings But the author was very negative and one-sided in his opinions.
I did not finish this book And therefore it may have improved Unfortunately, the way in which the author was negatively aopinionated most of the time prevented me from persevering with the book Jan 13, Caro rated it liked it.
This is a real oddity: Elder chronicles his travels through both islands, and when I say chronicles, I mean that every vibration of his cell phone is recorded. So why did I keep reading a book that feels more like a vanity publication than a book from John Wiley, of all houses? For the descriptions of NZ, of course.
Not really worth it, but I persisted for some reason Mar 21, Cutterid rated it liked it. A travel book, but more like a travelogue. Alexander Elder chronicles his 2-month adventure in New Zealand, detailing the wonderful and not-so-wonderful people he meets, the scenery, the wildlife, and the national spirit he encounters. I read this before I planned my own trip to New Zealand.
It did give me some ideas about how to travel and what to expect, but it wasn't as great a help to me as I had hoped.

My trip was only going to last 2 weeks, so I didn't have the time to hang around in one p A travel book, but more like a travelogue. My trip was only going to last 2 weeks, so I didn't have the time to hang around in one place for a while like he did. He reads as being a Big-Shot and he certainly is confident and a bit full of himself. But he does make friends and this bravado I think must be part of his charm. I did enjoy the read, though, and the insight it gave me into New Zealand's land and its people. Dec 28, Alisa rated it did not like it Shelves: nonfiction , read-for-travel.
The first problem is evident from the author bio: "Dr. Alexander Elder is But Dr. Elder is more than a bit of a blowhard so it fits his personality. I felt, ultimately, that I learned much more about him the success of his previous books on Wall St. His travels were woefully short on descriptions of his journey and the sights and long on the many shortcomings of the places where he stayed and the not-interesting details of getting his computer fixed.
Not up to the standards set by Pausanias. View 1 comment. Jan 16, Kelly Lynn Thomas rated it it was ok Shelves: nature-and-travel , mfa-books , nonfiction. This is more a travel diary than anything else. I don't have a problem with that in and of itself I do enjoy nature journals , but the author spends as much nitpicking his experiences at the places he stays as on his actual traveling.
I didn't feel like I was in New Zealand.
For example, in an early-ish chapter, the author goes on a glacier hike, but hardly describes what it feels like to walk on a glacier. Instead, he recounts the things his guide says; things I really don't give two shakes ab This is more a travel diary than anything else.
Instead, he recounts the things his guide says; things I really don't give two shakes about. He does take frequent narrative detours to go into the country's history, which I do appreciate, but that wasn't enough to save the book from its monotony. Mar 22, Cyndi rated it did not like it. I only made it through about a third of this book, so perhaps I shouldn't review it, but In my opinion, the best travel writing is a combination of learning about a person and therefore something about the human condition and learning about a location. So strictly speaking, this book should be a success.
We certainly learn a lot about both the author and New Zealand.
