Anybody clued up on EU regulations?

Particularly the ones that only apply to us & not the French.
Please would you walk a little faster, or get the f*** out of my way.

There are no EU regulations that only apply to us.

They have binding legal force throughout every Member State and are on a par with national laws.

Bob, there are loads that only seem to apply to us. How about health & safety?

Or how about Eurodisney tickets? I can get 1 adult & 1 child generously discounted 4 days for the price of 3 for 240 pounds.

On a French site, an ANNUAL pass for 1 adult & 1 child 168 Euros, but these deals are only available to our French clients. What would happen if one of our companies tried that.?

The problem with the EU is that regulations are supposed to apply to all members.

Only the British play the game of cricket and play an extra innings to ensure fair play!  The others may implement the rules into law, but have no enforcement authority, so their adherence is meaningless! And then these others threaten the UK with the European Courts when the UK don't play by the rules the others don't play but decide we should.

It really is time we left this "Mickey Mouse" outfit, and made our own politicians do the job WE pay them for - Government of the UK people, by the UK people, for the benefit of the UK people!!!

Currently, despite their fine words and posturing, they are mere middlemen for the EU and should have their salaries halved or even quartered to match those of other salesmen/lower managers!!

What gets me Mike is how blatant it is.  When I asked why they couldn't post to my UK address I got an email saying "These deals are only available to our French clients.  So now I gotta get them sent to my mate in France.

Clegg says "Migrant clamp illegal"!

Is this guy a lawyer, or just more interested in becoming another parasite, e.g. EU commissar?

Get rid of the EU and Clegg!!
