(And yes, I am aware of the meme popular in certain anti-EU circles about Napoleonic Law versus Common Law and how the EU uses the former which only permits things explictly stated while the latter allows everything *except* things explicitly stated. It’s a load of ahistorical abject bollocks made popular by people who haven’t got the first clue about how EU Law actually works. In any case, it matters not a jot in this instance, as Britain (or, at any rate, England, Wales and Northern Ireland) still has its Common Law, and would therefore not be obliged to stop eggs being labelled by number even if the final version of this proposed legislation forgot to include an explicit opt-out.)
EU law over rides UK. EU law is Napoleonic: if it is not stated that you may then you may not.
I\’ve wondered this for some time and I\’m afraid, sorry and all that, but I think Our Clive is being paid you know.
Purely personal opinion, but I really do.
