EU Agreement Ignored

The EU has banned battery hens with effect from next month.

Nearly half, 13 out of 27, countries intend to ignore the ban.

Worse, the UK, which already has such a ban anyway, will continue to import eggs and egg products produced in defiance of such a ban.

So much for the spirit of co-operation across Europe, and for Cameron's posturings about protecting British interests.

No doubt DEFRA will be quick enough to prosecute any UK producers who infringe the regulations.

We will probably see a similar situation when pig stalls, already banned here, are banned across the EU the year after next.
