Learn from the French example

Comment 9th July 2010

For years now the French have had a sensible and practical approach to EU legislation and regulations: they take a long cool look, and decide: (a) if it makes sense, and  (b) if it is good for France; if the answer to either of these is 'no' , they ignore the EU dictat, and continue to do things their own way.

Britain should do the same – NOT slavishly snap to attention and immediately observe the letter of every one of even the most half – baked pronouncements which emanate from Brussels and Maastricht. 

Why does this matter?

We are allowing ourselves, in our way of life, and in business, to be hamstrung by rules which are created by some of the most extreme loonies in the EU administration, and which, if we were to be charitable, might – only might – be relevant to the country of the originator, but are, in many cases, an assault on the way of life we, in this country, have cherished and defended for hundreds of years.

I am a firm believer in the idea that the EU is a great benefit to international trade, and in other areas, but the thought of a 'United States Of Europe' with the UK subservient to the gnomes of Brussels fills me with dread.
