Land of the Free

The sale of these vegetables would of course be a criminal offence here in the European Union.

They don\’t meet the requirements for size and uniformity.

Aren\’t we lucky to be so protected?

Can we leave yet?

  1. You can buy veg like that on most Farmers Markets in the UK, all legally.

    A tad tabloid, Timmy.

    Tim adds: Can you show me the let out from the fruit and veg directives then please? Or do people simply turn a blind eye at Farmers’ Markets?

  2. Does anybody know whether Tim is correct that such non-uniform vegetables would be illegal under EU regulations when sold at the farm gate or at a farmers’ market?

    It would greatly shock a friend of mine who wants to sell her overflow of courgettes. I only told her today that the EU would probably not like it.

  3. “It would greatly shock a friend of mine who wants to sell her overflow of courgettes. ”

    Well Paul, perhaps this thread will give her some ideas about what to do with them.

  4. What the directives say and what actually happens IRL are often two different things.

    I don’t consider this to be a counter-argument against the shitness of shit directives.

  5. “Only when you’ve got the consent of the people.”

    No, the consent of the people should have been given in order to join the EU!! And no, the referendum to joing the EEC tading block in 1973 does not equate to consent being given to membership of the EU.
