The European Union has decided to scrap regulations for timber quality and packaging sizes in a drive to reduce red tape. This is good news.
I struggle to see why Europe needs a uniform standard for packaging sizes - I'm a bright chap; I can figure out the difference between an 800g loaf and a 1000g loaf. And if my wood is too knotty, I'll not use that supplier again.
I hope that this drive to reduce red tape keeps going. I can think of a few more regulations that need not be taken at a level so elevated as to standardise across nearly half a trillion people.
