But your sarcasm is a bit misplaced?
The point is, how many euro "civil servants" on decent wages, in expensive prestige offices, doing research, asking producers, speaking to lobbyists, the food industry, restauters and producers,with all the best equipment, and providing every document in several languages via expensive translators, through hours of committees, to production of the proposals, voting ther on, and the media output, did it take to come up with just a totally obviously spannerish idea to a non problem.
If this didn't cost hundreds of thousands, possibly millions of wasted euros, from a largely unaccountable body who sit supreme and neigh on untouchable over English law, and isn't being replicated in hundreds of other offices with other equally spannerish ideas, it would be ok. But your tax bill pays for this farce.
So its not such a non story really, is it? Is this what "Yerp" should be about? Perhaps focus on international free trade, law and order and defence, and save billions of highly paid euro politik'ers and their expense accounts...
