EU plan threatens British participation in hi-tech research
Commission security proposal would restrict UK access to Horizon Europe quantum computing project

Britain will join China in being locked out of research with the EU on cutting-edge quantum technology, such as new breeds of supercomputers, due to security concerns under a European commission proposal opposed by academics and 19 member states.

At a meeting on Friday, commission officials said the EU needed to keep control of intellectual property on key projects and that working with even close allies such as the UK and Switzerland opened up an unacceptable risk.

Under the UK’s trade and security deal with its former partners, the government retained the right to pay into and participate in the EU’s Horizon Europe research programme, a seven-year, €95.5bn (£82bn) funding scheme. But the commission has now decided to curtail the type of projects in which the UK will be able to take part under a draft proposal discussed with the member states on Friday.

Representatives from Germany, Belgium, Spain, Ireland, Italy and the Netherlands were among the 19 member states who voiced concerns over the plan driven by Thierry Breton, the French internal market commissioner, and backed by the French government, among others.

“You can’t just put the UK and Switzerland in the same box as China and Iran,” said one concerned diplomat. “If this is what Breton’s idea of strategic autonomy looks like, we’re in for one rough ride. The commission is pulling the rug underneath fruitful collaborations; they need to stay on the carpet.”

But commission officials rejected arguments about the importance of working with trusted partners, sources said. The UK’s attempt to break international law over the Northern Ireland border was raised by the commission as an example of why there was a lack of trust.

Not against that as the Brits never appreciated good French wine and referred to it as claret. Australian plonk in box suits them down to the ground. Victory wine!

The worst Australian plonk in box is better than the best Dutch wine. :hehe:
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

Quantum computer is so new it probably benefits from in house develop more than most things. Nothing to see here. Not yet anyway.

Now China has imposed punitive tariffs on Oz wine (along with a variety of other goods), we can provide enough wine (much of rather good, actually) to keep the Tories permanently sozzled...

It's popular here as well. Unfortunately I was raised wrong so I don't like wine, and I've tried many times to enjoy it.

We dont produce wine on such a scale as we need to put it into boxes. We do have a few vineyards which are far better than most Ozland plonk which is very easy to accomplish. Your wine is crap. I once got Fernland wine at their embassy which most Fernlanders would not even sniff. That was acceptable.

I know you want it to be crap so you can continue to hate, but unfortunately for you it's actually top quality.

Says the great wine expert from his trailer where? Grow up, Australian wine never got past the box stage and top quality it will never be. It is bog standard plonk and sells for €3 a litre box.

2021
South Australia’s Taylors Wines was named Winery of the Year (Import) at the San Diego International Wine & Spirits Challenge this year.

Judges crowned the Clare Valley family winemaker as the top imported winery in a competition that saw entries from more than 13 wine producing nations, including France, Italy, Spain, South Africa and the US.

The top honours were awarded to Taylors as more than 50% of the winery’s entries received a gold medal ranking or better. This is the second consecutive year that Taylors received the Winery of the Year honour.

...

In addition to the Winery of the Year trophy, Taylors’ Jaraman wines took top honours in the competition, with the 2019 Jaraman Shiraz bringing home a platinum award and ‘Best Shiraz’ and the 2020 Jaraman Grenache, a new vintage release, receiving a gold medal and the ‘Best Grenache’ title. In total, the family winery claimed eight medals at the competition.

No entries from the Netherregions. Can't imagine why...
