No I wasn't, that's why I followed the sentence with a smily.
But you never know what daft ideas will come out of the EU (Germany)
next. Banning high power AV amps perhaps ?, or maybe TV's that use
more than 60 watts ?. At least they won't ban burning coal because they
are building a few new brown-coal fired power stations for themselves.
Never ever look at it. All the things that the EU have
banned have been reported in all the papers at some point,..
Almost any garden chemical of any use
Methylene Chloride paint stripper
Paint that actually protects properly
Vapona strips and many other domestic treatments
Coal (exemptions for Germany)
and they are determined to ban glyphosate at some point
(but Bayer have a much more expensive on-patent replacement).
You've bought a vac under the new regs which isn't up to it? Care to name
Pretty nasty stuff.
Only from DIY products.
Which one would that be? Lead paint? Banned here before the EU existed.
They've been banned have they?
You seem to want to poison yourself. Fairy nuff, but others might not.
Can you give some details about coal being banned?
Ah - that would be one of the chemicals you use in a garden?
I'd have thought it easy for a rabid Brexiteer to come up with some really
daft EU regs. All you've managed to say is you want any dangerous chemical
to be freely available and don't care how much you spend on wasting
energy. And that you're not old enough to remember the evil smogs cause by
1/10. Must try harder.

When you say 'they banned' you presumably mean 'we' - the UK was
involved in the decision. And good riddance to most of the stuff you
list, I'd have thought (although Lidl were selling a 1500W vacuum the
I was in Germany recently and signs on the hotel breakfast toasters
warned against browning - carcinogenic apparently. They were set to
produce slightly warm bread. It'd amuse me no end to see 'our' EU
legislate for that :-)
That's because its all brexiteer lies and they haven't actually banned
any of the stuff.
Except the Vapona fly killers maybe.
As you have seen you can still buy 1500w vacs because they haven't been
banned. However domestic vacs are limited in power. Workshop vacs are not.
These brexiteers actually believe that if they keep trotting out the
same old lies that everyone will think they are true.
I wish they would just tell us the real reason they want to leave so we
can make a judgement on fact rather than that they lie.
They want POWER! Without the control of the EU.
Well that's the 0.00005% that actually form policy and "run" the country
The minions just fell for it hook line and sinker just like the people
I remember being on a camp site in Eguisheim, France, a long time
ago. The village was a delightful throwback to an earlier age.
I noticed that the locals appeared to pull up by a water fountain
in a square and drop in a bucket to wash their cars.
As it was a very hot dry period, my car had become pretty dirty,
so I decided to follow suit. As I had a Renault at the time, it
even looked the part.
Locals didn't even give me second glance, though tourists off a
bus that arrived nearby seemed a bit more interested.
