False Diplomacy

Several news organizations, including Forbes, recently reported that the independent state of Narnia had walked out of the current round of WTO trade negotiations in Hong Kong.  The issue?  Pressure on Narnia from the U.S. and the E.U. to liberalize its clothing/textile sector. 

A bit of advice to the media:  don't believe every press release you read. 

Narnia is not a real country.  It does not have a garment industry.  And just to be clear, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is a children's book in the Chronicles of Narnia series by C.S. Lewis and a new Disney movie, not another fictionalized tale of life at Vogue.
