Bonkers Conkers EU Ban Plan New Legislation Outlaws Conker Trading

The EU have EU-turned:

Yesterday the PM weighed into the daft tale, saying:

“This is exactly the sort of thing that Europe shouldn’t even be discussing. It shouldn’t even be on the table, to force a pun – so to speak. So this shouldn’t even arise. This is exactly the sort of area that the European Union needs to get right out of in my view.”

Well thankfully they have seen the light, but here is another one for Dave to get stuck into…

At the beginning of the month the “Plant Reproductive Material Law”  was adopted by the EU Commission to regulate all plants. Seed experts say:

“Under the new law, it will immediately be illegal to grow, reproduce or trade any vegetable seed or tree that has not been tested and approved by a new “EU Plant Variety Agency”, who will make a list of approved plants. Moreover, an annual fee must also be paid to the Agency to keep them on the list, and if not paid, they cannot be produced.”

Which means that strictly speaking it is now in breach of EU regulations for schoolboys to swap or sell their conkers to their mates, without paying an annual fee and without conkers being “officially tested and registered”. Bonkers.
