IF YOU VOTED
for the so-called EU
in any way, manner, means, shape, or form—
“In this era of high prices and growing demand, it makes no sense to throw (misshapen fruit and vegetables) away or destroy them. It shouldn’t be the EU’s job to regulate these things.”
Under the present regulations, Class 1 cucumbers must be “practically straight” and be bent by a gradient of no more than 1/10.
Produce that does not meet the minimum standards can not at present be sold as second-class, meaning many edible items are thrown away by farmers…
then you voted for this (above).
And for this—
A majority of EU member states, including Britain and Ireland, have voted to reform rules like EC Commission Regulation No 2257/94, which caused international ridicule by stating that all bananas must be “free of abnormal curvature” and at least 14 cm in length.
—and remember always that as a voter—
All you achieve with your vote
is endlessly more of the above
—wherever you are.
Unless you live in Switzerland …
“Mr Argus, Sir?”
“Yes, Little Ollivia?”
“How do they quantify ‘abnormal curvature’, Sir?”
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, Kid.”
“A wee backhander never hurts, Sir?”
“You got it, Cutie~!”
