Seems fair. Turkeys don't vote for Christmas ...

PS There probably isn't an EU Reg that requires me to add "or Thanksgiving"

What really annoys me is the way people who have never ever had to deal professionally with the Commission support, without thinking, the EU. They bleat' If it isn't working, get it changed', not realising that the power of the Commission pretty well prevents that. Meanwhile, the EC come up with proposals that are utter crap not only because of total technical ignorance of the subject, but also because they do not understand the commercial implications of what the idiots propose.

OK, I may be biased, but before retirement, I had to deal with these incompetent stupid overpaid dickheads in Brussels! So incompetent that they cannot even get the title of an approved standard published in the Official Journal in as much, in some cases, as 16 months............

We could save a fortune by shutting down the various Directorates in Brussels and substituting intelligence in individual countries....
