Potentzialtasuna? Blokeatu lezake, blokeatu ahalko luke.
Irrealtasuna? Blokeatuko luke
Albistea: Norway may block UK return to European Free Trade Association1
(a) Norvegiako politikari batzuk bilduko dira Britainia Handiko (BH) Brexit ministroarekin2
May and could block…potentzialtasuna ala irrealtasuna?
(b) Norvegia ez da Europar Batasuneko (EB) kidea3
(c) Norvegiako interesak, post-Brexit eta BH4
(d) European Economic Area, EEA (Europako Area Ekonomikoa)5
(e) Argitasun gehiago datorren irailean eta urrian6
(f) Norvegiako afera: 38 herrialderekin sinaturiko akordio ekonomikoak7
(g) BH EFTAn 1960an8
(h) Europako Area Ekonomikoko kidetasuna eta litekeen blokeoa9
(i) Norvegiako alderdi laborista eta BH-koa hurrengo irailean biltzeko asmoan10
(j) Norvegiako ezkerreko alderdi sozialista EEA delako akordioak birnegoziatzekoaren alde, BH-aren laguntzarekin11
Hortaz, ekonomia nagusi eta norberaren interesak mahai gainean nonahi, EFTAn ere…
Dena den, badirudi balitz (… litzateke: irrealtasuna) eta baledi (…liteke: potentzialtasuna) direlakoen artean dagoela jokoa. Joko ekonomikoa, noski, ez gramatikala (!?)
Denborak esango du. Izan ere, laster jakingo dugu nola bukatuko diren martxan dauden bilerak, kontaktuak, eztabaidak, ondorioak eta erabakiak.
Inoiz eztabaidatuko dituzte puntu garrantzitsu guzti horiek Katalunian ala, Quim Arrufat-i esan bezala, super neoliberala den Xavier Sala i Martín-i segituko diote?

Egun on, Quim
Más trabajo, pero muy importante trabajo.
Ya sólo os falta tener como asesor económico a Warren Mosler, para que os libre del super neoliberal Xavier Sala i Martín.
Eta Euskal Herrian, non ez baita ezertaz ere ez eztabaidatzen?
Egin dezagun amets, udan gaude eta:
Demagun testuinguru hau: EFTA eta bertan sartzeko kide berri bat.
Zer gertatuko litzateke EFTAn, baldin eta kide berri hori ‘tamaina handiko’ Britainia Handia izatearen ordez ‘tamaina txikiko’ Euskal Herriko errepublika independentea izango balitz?
Galdera egokia hurrengo hauteskundeak gertatu baino lehen hemengo independentistei egiteko.
Animatu eta egin!
2 Ingelesez: “Norwegian politicians to meet UK’s Brexit minister amid concerns that allowing Britain to rejoin will shift balance of organisation
Norway could block any UK attempt to rejoin the European Free Trade Association, the small club of nations that has access to the European single market without being part of the EU.
Senior Norwegian government members are to hold talks with David Davis, the Brexit minister, in the next few weeks.
Some Brexit supporters have suggested that Efta would be one way of retaining access to the single market while honouring the referendum mandate to leave the EU.”
3 Ingelesez: “Norway is not a member of the EU, but it has access to the single market from its membership of the European Economic Area (EEA), which groups all EU members and three of the four Efta members: Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein, but not Switzerland.”
4 Ingelesez: “Norway’s European affairs minister, Elisabeth Vik Aspaker, reflecting a growing debate in the country following the Brexit vote in the UK, told the Aftenposten newspaper: “It’s not certain that it would be a good idea to let a big country into this organisation. It would shift the balance, which is not necessarily in Norway’s interests.”
She also confirmed that the UK could only join if there were unanimous agreement, thereby providing Norway with a veto. Aspaker said she did not know the UK’s plans.”
5 Ingelesez: “EEA membership requires the four EU freedoms: free movement of persons, services, goods and capital. Norway, in need of extra labour, does not oppose free movement, though the issue of asylum seekers and refugees is controversial.”
7 Ingelesez: “One concern is that Norway, through Efta, has signed trade agreements with 38 countries, including Mexico, Canada, Colombia, Morocco, Kuwait and Qatar. If the UK joined, those trade agreements might have to be renegotiated and future trade deals would become more complex.”
8 Ingelesez: “Britain was a founding member of Efta in 1960, a free trade organisation that was an appendage to the European Economic Community, the forerunner of the EU. In 1973, Britain joined the EEC.”
9 Ingelesez: “By opposing a British return to Efta, where decisions are made by consensus, Norway would in effect block the UK’s chances of accessing the single market via the EEA, since only EU and Efta members can be part of the EEA.”
10 Ingelesez: “Norwegian Labour party (NLP) officials are due to travel to the UK Labour party conference in September for talks on future relations with the EU.
Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour leader, told his party at the weekend that it needs to accept the vote to leave the EU, but has suggested the possibility of Norway-style access to the single market.
Sources in the NLP said there was growing concern at the consequences for Norway if the UK joined Efta. A source joked that the country might lose its superpower status in Efta, were this to occur. The combined population of current Efta nations is 14 million, compared with the UK population of 55 million.”
11 Ingelesez: “Audun Lysbakken, the leader of Norway’s Socialist Left party, has argued that the EEA agreement should be renegotiated with the UK’s help, saying countries “outside need a better model for cooperation with the EU than the current EEA agreement”.
He said he was amazed that his government did not want to have an open debate about a new relationship with the EU. “Throughout the spring, the government has been adamant that the EEA is not a good model and it is not something they would recommend to the British. Now they suddenly want to leave it as it is,” Lysbakken said.
“The EEA has created a significant democratic deficit through importing laws over which Norway has little influence.””
