I thought that too. Then I remembered that tariffs don't just appear. We're paying bureaucrats salaries so that they can decide how much more expensive becoming a clown should be.

You're happy with a tariff on Apples to protect Orchard owners and workers? Fine, but what about cider makers? What about bakers? What about green grocers? What about super market workers? You've made all of those industries more expensive and therefore harmed their workers. Why is that fair?

If orchards don't pay well enough then perhaps there should be fewer orchards? Or they should be more efficient. Or they should concentrate on premium products.

The US and Aus were two countries I picked as being culturally similar to the UK and English speaking so I had a chance of finding and understanding their tariffs. And frankly it was enough hassle traipsing through those three that I couldn't be bothered to look for any others.
