EU to separate the sheep from the goats.

Oh yes it is, thusly:

"The EU Council of Ministers have today agreed on 31 December 2009 as the obligatory implementation date for the introduction of electronic identification (EID) of sheep and goats. The Regulation was adopted on 17 December 2003 and introduces, amongst other measures, a system of individual animal recording and electronic identification (EID) for sheep and goats, which will now be required from 31 December 2009".

The text is rather less dramatic than the KJV (Matt 25:31): "When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left".

Coming up next, separation of wheat from the tares?

I always wondered what Eid meant: the BBC are constantly mentioning it.
