How I like my carrots is none of your business

Reprieve for curvy cucumbers and crooked carrots as EU bends rules - Times Online

Knobbly fruit and amusingly shaped vegetables, the staple diet of local newspapers, caption competitions and That's Life!, are set to return to the shops in a reprieve from strict European Union laws.

The regulations covering the size and shape of 26 types of fruit and vegetable are expected to be abolished today by EU agriculture officials... but the vote will be a close call owing to opposition from France, Italy, Spain and Greece. It is expected to pass now that Germany has swung behind the move, which was supported strongly by Hilary Benn, the Rural Affairs Secretary.

“I think a large dose of common sense is required here,” Mr Benn told The Times. “Frankly, if shops want to sell, and consumers want to buy, funny-shaped carrots and turnips then I do not really see what the problem is.”

Benn speaking sense? I must be still suffering from that bonfire smoke....

This, like the lbs and ozs, is smoke and mirrors to show us a "listening" EU and nullify one eurosceptic criticism. It avoids the question of why they should have any control over what we grow and eat anyway.

Indeed, very well said Dennis. Hilary Benn is a cunt, an utter cunt, just like his insane father.

WHY IN THE NAME OF ALL THAT'S HOLY SHOULD THE QUESTION OF WHETHER I CAN BUY A BENT BANANA HAVE A FUCKING THING TO DO WITH GERMANY OR GREECE, OR FRANCE, OR HILARY FUCKING CUNTING BENN.

JUST FUCK OFF AND DIE PLEASE.

If a LARGE dose of common sense ever occured in this country we'd tear up and burn every fucking EU directive we've ever signed and paint a gifuckingnormous FUCK OFF message on the white cliffs of Dover.

Think of the horror that those long-suffering vegetable definition writers are experiencing in the bowels of Belgium. Years and years of meetings, lunches, training, travel, dinners, and all manner of expenses wasted.

Theoretically its your money at work I think. Thank God its not mine - although we have our own problems with President-elect WealthSpread (tm) to deal with.
