EU rules operating /against/ French interests

No, not a typo. The Australian reports that EU regulations on air travel are giving the French a bit of a kicking:

"As a general rule, any malleable product is forbidden. For example, a soft cheese (like camembert) is not allowed in the cabin, (but) a hard cheese (like gruyere) is allowed. Another example: foie gras is not allowed".

Blimey. Some years back my sister's husband got the third degree at Stansted for having a whole Stilton in his hand luggage, which they must have thought could have been semtex. That was the same year that they decided that Christmas crackers were explosives, and would only be allowed on with the 'fuses' removed.

“Malvolio comes in, grinning and with his yellow socks. Olivia says, "Huh? This is a sad occasion."

As always the bard was there before you

Me, Communist?

The Danny thing is moving along, but all of the involved are in purdah....

Glad I came across OK. Anything better than having a flop sweat or coming over as a complete dick to my regulars would have counted as a result. I did enjoy wrong footing ID on the Olympics.

He was Alex Singleton from the Globalisation Institute. I didn't get a chance to speak to him, but had a bit of a chat with Kerron before and after. Nice chap.

N - as he so often is for all us. Yellow socks also rate as one of Ian Dury's reasons to be cheerful though.

Was that Iain Dales "partner" doing the tidying up for the first couple of minutes?
