Euro Trash

I recently participated in an editorial debate on the failed EU constitution vote. Keith Knudsen of Viterbo wrote the first piece here. And my peice follows here.

Had I read this piece before I wrote mine I would have included it.

Bavarians are hot under the collar over an EU directive that will force their barmaids to cover up, supposedly to protect them from the sun.

The new legislation, which is due to be voted on in the European parliament next month, was defended by Wolfgang Kreissl-Dörfer, a Bavarian MEP. He said: "Sun rays have become more aggressive and there has been a huge increase in the amount of skin cancer."
