Recently on Countryfile a BBC programme a report about the new European Union (getting more like the Soviet Union every day)in which a discussion took place about a new law which comes into operation later this year.
This law is all about battery hens.
There will have to be new bigger/better gages in which to keep hens.
That's great. I'm all for improving the life of the hens.
However what really struck home to me was the comment from some of the egg producers that they were going to have to lobby the government to control the import of eggs from other European Countries.
Whilst our farmers are having to spend out large sums for new gages etc it appears that some other EU countries are likely to ignore the law and continue in the old way.
What is the point of bringing in new laws if the EU cannot or will not enforce them?
It is now such a corrupt organisation that I fear for the future.
Oops I shouldn't have posted that I'll probably be one of the first to have the EU secret police knocking on my door in the early morning.
Seriously though the organisation is getting out of control and somehow will have to be reigned in before it does unrepairable damage.
Enough of my rant.
Let's have a joke:- There are three kinds of lie, a small lie,a big lie and politics.
