EU's big bad thumb

EU Commission targets states over noise pollution

BRUSSELS, July 11 (Reuters) - European Union states that have not adopted EU rules aimed at reducing noise in crowded cities will face court action if they fail to act soon, the bloc's executive said on Monday.

The European Commission said it was initiating legal action against 11 states which had failed to incorporate the rules into national noise pollution legislation, which should have been done by July 2004.

The states are Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Portugal and Britain.

Who are the clowns that come up with this stuff? I have a picture in my mind of nanny police running around giving tickets to construction crews drilling holes, other policemen blowing their whistles, businessmen/women shouting for taxi's, the honking of horns, etc. Just everyday sounds of city life.

These politicians really have just too much time on their hands.

And they wonder why the Britsih people don't want to be part of Europe.

Unelected bureaucrats coming up with more preposterous laws and ways to waste time and money, which all stop really important things actually getting done.
