Freer free trade

It is always nice to see the architects of the reasonably unfair world trading system told they can't behave as they want to.

Agricultural access for poorer nations to rich markets is a huge priority in reducing global poverty levels. Rich world farmers are such a powerful lobby group that they prevent the free access of poorer nations.

It is good to see the principles on which the WTO was based upheld and in a forum which has been designed and authorised to hand down binding judgements. This is really great news.
