Woman scorned

British fish and meat exporters are facing EU “bureaucracy” at the border and seeing produce turned away if a form is filled out in the wrong coloured pen.

That’s what it looks like, doesn’t it? Woman scorned……

  1. So Much For Subtlety

    I am enjoying the EU being forced to back down from trying to close down vaccine exports.

    But a woman scorned? We know that they need to punish in order to deter. If Britain leaves and makes a sense of it, perhaps other people will too. Edmund Burke said that Great Empires and small minds rarely go together. The EU has chosen to be small.

  2. Long ago, in local government, I was required to fill in forms with black or red pen. Blue, I think, did not photocopy well.

    So it’s reasonable that the EU had a rule.
    The silly bit is not changing it in the age of scanners.
    But I think many of us think the EU is living in the past.

  3. “The Dutch have in some cases asked for the certificates to be translated into Dutch…”

    Because ‘only’ 93% of the Dutch speak English?

  4. “The Dutch have in some cases asked for the certificates to be translated into Dutch…”

    I’ve faced the effrontery of furrin pen-pushers asking for degree certificates to be translated into English. “Latin is the language of scholarship” I replied. Which amused me more than it amused them.
