    Germans attempt to tilt the playing field thwarted

    After a five-year legal battle, James Dyson has finally succeeded in his long-running legal battle to get the EU’s top court to strke out their absurd regulation that vacuum cleaners should be tested… without dust. The regulation enabled Dyson’s German competitors to market their vacuum cleaners with superior energy labelling, despite the fact that their performance dropped significantly as soon as their bags contained dust. That is, as soon as they were used…

    The ruling means the EU will now have to go back and design a regulation that means that test are carried out “as close as possible to actual conditions of use”. ie common bloody sense.

    It dirty tricks like this by the french and germans that is why we loathe them and voted to leave.

    Clinton: Religious freedom and religious tolerance are essential to the stability of any nation, any people. Hatred and violence in the name of religion only poison the well.

    What fantastic news. I'll sleep better tonight. I guess some things suck worse than others.

    Seriously, I didn't know such a regulation existed.

    The EU has constantly passed regulations that disadvantage the Uk to the benefit of the french or germans, its been going on for 40 years. Another example was the EU banned the use of creosote , and licenced the use of a substitute ...made only by a german company, and cost twice as much.
