    EU bans giving bones to dog owners
    By Nigel Rosser, Evening Standard
    26 May 2004

    Butchers are being threatened with fines if they give bones away to dog owners. They are being sent letters telling them that a new European directive bans the traditional practice.

    In future, Britain's 10,000 butchers will have to pay for the bones to be incinerated rather than hand them free to customers for their pets.

    For the fucked-up **** which a relatively high degree of freedom allows...I'll take it any day of the week over THIS ****. Enjoy, mates.

    The U.S. has things along the same lines. Seatbelt laws, helmet laws, etc. "Freedom" is a relative word.

    Would anyone else care to repeat what I said, albeit, just a little differently?

    A spokesman said: "Customers can take bones away with them when they buy the deboned meat if it is for human consumption."
    I think that's what keinhaar was talking about. The "by-product" is ok for human consumption, but not for pets?

    And what does "barmy" mean anyway?

    The EU sucks huge amounts of dick. They're getting a big thumbs down from me in the June vote.

    Pricks.

    I second that. Joining the EU will probably have all kinds of 'freedoms' taken away. Just look at France and that whole not wearing anything that makes you an 'individual'/appear different thing.

    I know, they're a bunch of complete fags.

    Like you say even France aren't happy, and that's saying something.

    'President' Blair will probably rail road us into it anyway.

    I'll have to practice throwing condoms filled with flour.
