@alanbeattie @dikenson Didn’t appreciate this is a Pauline moment for Economist. Still, Members must take blame, not WTO. (They deserve it).

@dikenson Who wants to do ‘more modest’? ‘Ambitious’ motivates the political economy. Modest is what your mother said. Fewer and higher :)

@sdonnan WTO? Even Mega-Regs confirm relevance of the rules, standards that they extend by reference. Danger is compliance may deteriorate.
