    Default Progress from the Biden Administration!

    From the BBC. . .

    US suspends tariffs on single malt Scotch whisky

    The US has agreed to suspend tariffs on UK goods including single malt whiskies that were imposed in retaliation over subsidies to the aircraft maker Airbus.

    Tariffs will also be lifted on UK cheese, cashmere and machinery.
    The duties will be suspended for four months while the two sides seek a long-term settlement.

    On 1 January, the UK dropped its own tariffs on some US goods, put in place over a related dispute about US subsidies to Boeing.
    It is the latest twist in a decades-old trade row that has seen the EU and the US target billions of dollars worth of each other's exports with taxes.

    The UK is part of the dispute as a former EU member. Airbus makes wings and other parts in the UK, but assembles its commercial aircraft in the EU.

    It has hit Scotch whisky producers particularly hard as the US is a key export market. Distilleries have reported 500m of losses since 2019 due to the tariffs.

    When you can take the pebble from my hand, it will be time for you to leave.
