Have to smile at the clunkers in Brussels
Seems they wanted to do their usual thuggish thing of applying sanctions. In this case Byelorussia.
But one country demurred!
Not out of any love for Byelorussia....

Cyprus blocked attempts by EU leaders to impose sanctions against some 40 Belarusian officials, including controversial president Alexander Lukashenko, in response to the disputed election results that saw the country’s leader secure a sixth term in office. Nicosia wanted the sanctions linked to similar action against Turkey amid a fiery dispute over natural gas drilling in the eastern Mediterranean.

People are so addicted to cheap goods and services there would be riots on the streets if they couldn't get year round strawberries oranges and bananas at prices they could afford. It's one thing to never have something but it's another thing to take something away from people.

Ask yourself one thing if you were to provide only Irish made clothes can you imagine a cost of producing that clothing.

at the moment an Irish jumper costs €120 to buy.

one thing that it is useful for is to show up just how poorly paid people are
That's because it is sold as a premium product to attract the Yankee dollar.
