Cut Regulation

In a bid to pretend that they care, European Commissioners are talking about cutting regulations.
'We are working to identify legislation which careful assessment shows to be disproportionately burdensome and complex for EU citizens and businesses in relation to the public interests safeguarded.' European competition commissioner Neelie Kroes Some of the legislation produced by the Commission's officials is "absurd" Jose Manuel Barroso
As a good European I suggest we use the precautionary principle to help us. Unless it can be proven that a piece of legislation does not harm business or annoy people worthlessly, we scrap it. In the meantime, when you wish to clean up a lake, removing the rubbish is a good step, but stopping the flow of pollutants is even more important. The body that proposed the recent sun protection law cannot claim to understand this simple piece of logic.
