The man in the Berlyamont knows best

Banksy found himself introuble with the EU 'elf Police
This whole business of the Toy Directive is a classic example of the cloth-eared approach of the Euroocrats to the world.

They might well think that they are above politics, indeed they do. But this aloofness from people's day to day concerns leaves them able to do soemthing as daft as banning under eight year olds from bvlowing up balloons and the rest.

To them democracy, public opinion is something that must not register. It is short term, and thus politicians and their attempts to represent the fickle voice of the electorate must also be ignored.

Not being consrained by democracy they plough their lonely furrows, trying to make the world a perfect safe place. This comment from the Telegraph today exemplifies the approach,
"You might say that small children have been blowing up balloons for generations, but not anymore and they will be safer for it," said an official"
As Paul Nuttall, the UKIP MEP on the Public Health Committee in the Brussels Parliament puts it in the Express,
Ukip MEP Paul Nuttall, said: “These idiots in Brussels seem to have a death wish. The euro is falling apart, but what do they concentrate on? Throwing our toys out of their pram.”
