One of those stopped clock moments

I find it hard to believe that they are even discussing this, but so be it.
Commodity prices have surged largely due to supply and demand bottlenecks and the European Union's response should be "considered and market-based" rather than rely on mandatory curbs, governments are set to agree.

Hold the front (business) page, the EU recognises it cannot control everything. Though of course there is one country which thinks otherwise. I wonder which that might be?
Some EU countries such as France want curbs on what they see as speculators such as hedge funds making quick gains in commodities markets at the expense of consumers.
