Have you no shame? bloke (not) in spain August 30, 2014 at 9:56 am Listening to the segment caused me to wonder about the possible EUness of this. From a Brit perspective, it’s of course nonsense. if you’ve fitted carpets throughout a high powered vacuum cleaner’s obviously more efficient. But are fitted carpets a peculiarly Brit affectation for homes? I can’t honestly say I’ve seen them anywhere else. My Spanish apartment doesn’t even have a rug & few people I know there have more than the odd one or two. More for show than practical necessity. Nowhere I’ve lived in France had them & the only French or Belgians i remember fully carpeted were in a Paris apartment. Italy seems much like Spain, Romania’s never heard of them & my recollections of Germany were well polished wood. If one’s mainly dealing with the odd rug & using the curtain attachment a high power vac’s a needless extravagance. Maybe the story’s just as much the usual inappropriate EU one-size-fits-all-ing & the ridiculousness of trying to manage behaviour at this level. if you want to manage behaviour in the first place.
