Oh Dear - Kiss A Deal Goodbye - Brazil Joins Anti List

This could be it.

Brazil says that the revised WTO negotiating texts need "much improvement". Brazil is joining India and Canada in this type of position. We wanted universal praise. Only universal praise would warrant another meeting at senior officials level this month and a hope of success from a Ministerial meeting in June.

We fear no one wants to settle until they know who will be the next occupant of the White House. Obama/Clinton could be problematic. McCain would do just fine!
