2010 will be the ‘Year of EU Regulation’.”

So says Mark Watts the former Labour MEP who heads up the Luther Pendragon office in Brussels. That may be the case, though I wish he wasn't so damnably happy about it.
“Regulation is now back in fashion in a big way and we know Brussels will be seeking to regulate almost every sector in 2010. Luther is advising clients that 2010 will be the ‘Year of EU Regulation’.”
I suppose we better not tell Vince Cable who has today announced his One in One Out program for regulation. As Lord Pearson, the UKIP leader puts it,
"what on earth does he propose to do with the avalanche of EU regulations? For this policy to have any real affect it must include EU regulations...Given that it would be illegal under EU law to abolish EU regulations unilaterally, then I can safely assume is that the assessment is, "tough, we are going to keep them'".
Glad to see young Olly Kaye has something to keep him off the streets though.
