An Affront to Justice
You really do want to read Booker's column today on Bowland Dairy Products.
The European Commission has just closed down the firm, despite the Court of First Instance showing them that they were wrong, and that they must desist. Further:
Despite the FSA's solid support of Bowland and its insistence that no rules had been broken, the Department of Health bowed to the commission's diktat. On October 16 it rushed through a statutory instrument, the Curd Cheese (Restriction on Placing on the Market) Regulations 2006, to take immediate effect. Section 3 read "No person shall place on the market any curd cheese manufactured by Bowland Dairy Products Limited"....
So, the courts don't work....even when you win in them the Commission just carries on in its own sweet manner. Further, to get their way, the introduce an entirely alien concept into UK law.
Can we leave yet?
